Hello everyone,

I'm really sorry for the late start but I was totally wrapped up studying.
Anyways, I was thinking since the last theme was external flash, the new theme could be using natural light only.
I'm sure this theme was covered more than once already but I would like to see some images that show how creative natural lighting can be used.
I'm sure you guys will come up with something!

Cheers.

Again, sorry for the late post. Uni is keeping me really busy.
I really liked all of your portraits and how natural they all are.

But since I have to pick a winner, my call would be Kevan.
I love the staring, love the b&w comversion, love the lighting.

Thanks for taking part everyone!

Thanks, DasBubb. Thanks, folks. Terrific entries, all of you! A hearty, "Bravo!" to you all.

Yeah, I had a really lucky visit at the Bronx zoo, back in January, on an overcast day, and several of the animals really were cooperative with the photo taking. This is a 4-5 month old cub that decided to jump up on a rock fairly close to the glass partition that keeps us from petting the tigers. I managed to press my lens hood up against the glass and the cat simply stared right down into the barrel of my lens, keeping very still, enough so that I squeezed off a half dozen frames. I played with a couple edits and conversions, and this one did it for me.

I'll try to get a challenge up and going today, early tomorrow. Me needs to think up something.
