Looking through my archive tonight, I came across this image of a duck, nothing special about the duck but the light on the water creates an almost painted effect (with a little help from shutter speed and panning).
The current theme on The Digital Lightroom is “Capture the Light” and this is an image I might consider submitting (if I was not a judge that is). Why not take a look at the competition and give some thought to how you might Capture the Light. There are more examples of the use of natural light in images over on The Digital Lightroom blog to inspire and encourage entries.
The competition does not close until 7 March so plenty of time to plan, capture and submit your entries. I am looking forward to seeing some great natural light images. Good luck!
