The galleries have been getting bigger and better over the last few weeks so I thought I'd try and stump you all with this weeks theme. Its all about unusual lighting and artistic images. Something that may not come naturally to everyone but worth thinking about for sure.
Not every shot has to be perfectly lit for it to be a winner in my book so have a look through your files and see what you come up with.
Back lit, side lit, rim lit or any shot that has an artistic feel to it is up for inclusion. Give us a little write up on how the shot was taken etc as well if you can
Look forward to seeing the contributions Paul
Back lit Spoonbill in flight
Yellow billed Spoonbill (Platalea flavipes)
Back lit shots can work particularly well with lighter birds that allow the light to shine through their wings. This Spoonbill took off with the sun behind it on a cloudy day at the WTP west of Melbourne.
