    Hi,
    Went out for a shoot today, and noticed the sun sitting perfectly behind this light- i thought it would make a good photo representing light- electrical or from the sun

    Any comments welcome

    It kind of just looks like a lamp in front of a white wall to me. I wouldn't know it was the sun, theres nothing to defing the sky, the sun, the horizon, etc.

    I like the idea, I just dont thin it worked :(
    Maybe if you have more in the shot....the ground, or something....more color in the sky, it would read better.

    Good idea though.

    I tried to include some more subject, but i dont think it works, because of the powerlines and such that end up in the shot

    Heres an example:

    After playing with levels while resizing that image- i can see that there may be more potential in these images to highlight the sun, if i spend some more time in post,
    Thanks for the quick reply

    a little....I also took the powerline out by painting over them. It's just an Idea.

    I kinda like the little birds on the power lines, but the lines themselves are distracting.

    fury, what i don't like in your edit opposed to lazarus' original is that your sun looks weird... it;s not round.

    best picture i believe would be the first but darkened or een tinted.

    I might go reshoot this today a little later in the day, just so there isnt so much dynamic range that the camera cant handle

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I have to admit I prefer the version with the power lines! Just seems more recognisable and everyday to me!


    Good photo and a neat idea too! :thumbup:
