This is my entry for the Billy Blue Change Your World Contest; titled "Rays of Light". The entry is simply a photograph that I took earlier in the year of the sunlight (hence the title, "Rays of Light") streaming through the clouds as they open up in the distance. This photo doesn't use any other images or stock images for that matter in the creation of this work work, however I did use Photoshop Camera Raw to alter the colours as well as other properties of the work.

Reflective Statement

When I took this photo; I just looked into the distance to notice these streams of sunlight filtering through the clouds and I thought they looked really cool. I also had my camera with me at the time so I decided to take a few photos of it.

It wasn't until I looked at this photo later until I saw the bigger coincidence, if you like, regarding the whole scene. This photo was taken around the time that a cousin of mine passed away, and myself and my family were still coming to terms of and mourning the loss. Although I am not religious myself (and I stress that), my cousins side of my family is, and as such; I kind of see the image of clouds splitting and revealing streams of sunlight filtering down through them as if heaven was speaking to us (me and my family), letting us know that my cousin was safe in the hands of the almighty.

And that is, really, the background behind this photograph!

more from the summer afternoon of 8-22-10, before the rainbow at core creek park in pennsylvania

no sepia filter was used, it was this color outside. it was spectacular. the rain was coming down heavily and my camera was getting soaked. I thought it was going to get ruined but i didn't want to pass this up. this is probably my favorite picture i've ever taken

Feel Inspired

sunset at corecreek park, in pennsylvania after a storm on 5-14-10

another heart in nature makes an appearance here. the shape wasnt edited, thats how i saw it.

i find the sighting strange because i saw this almost a week prior



this is actually a panoramic shot, as i took a few vertical images and stitched them together.

edit: wow my first DD. its an awesome feeling and was definitely something nice to wake up to. I've come a long way since this image and I couldn't have done it without the support I get from all of you. Thanks suggesting the DD, and thanks for making it happen. it means so much!
