    late posting this as I am just back from vacation!

    For this week’s challenge, the subject will be “soft”. This could be interpreted several ways - soft focus (in camera or with software or filters), a soft subject (kittens?) or soft lighting (reflectors, scrims, backlighting, mist) . Or any other creative use of the theme. The only rule is - as always, new photos only for the challenge. Get out there and shoot!

    Here are some links to get your creativity flowing.

    Taken next to the river this evening - some grass in the foreground to soften the portrait.

    Great light! The detail/quality you always get in the eyes and skin is simply amazing.

    Too trite, but I swear the first thing I thought when I saw the sky was, “How soft that looks!”
