i'd have to agree with aznym on this one...they must have been blinded by the light

Greetings from the Critique Club....

Hi Imagineer...

This is an excellent photo and it was one of my 'tens' in this challenge. This photo shows a perfect example of 'beneficial' lens flare. It's hard to achieve when I actually want it. The sun and the flare set a nice mood for this photo. The people seem to be enjoying themselves and relaxing in the warmth of the early morning sun. Maybe this is a group of students waiting for class to begin... having coffee... some last minute studying and dicussion about an exam...

Excellent shot :)

I am surprised that this image did not do better. I thought this was at least in the top 20. Good photo.

74th! That's ridiculous! Did most voters go blind?

I think this expresses the challenge topic perfectly, my choice for the blue

Nice photo. I like the image and the coloring. It may have benefitted from a smaller apeture or a quicker shutter speed. And it may have been a little more interesting to more the angle to include the people more and cut out some of the buildings on the right. Overall, good job.

A good idea but I'm not sure this shots works as well as it could have. I think that the photographer has tried to include too much in the scene, rather than leave some to the imagination. Always a difficult decission.

Found myself purposely NOT looking into the sun in this image. Subconciously, I was afraid I could damage my retinas. :-) I've done similar images in black and white and always been fascinated by the halos around peoples' heads; but to capture the rays so spectacularly also - that's just cool. Their impact is even accentuated by the shadows from the chairs. Totally different from all other entries. Nice job. Congratulations.

The bright spot is blinding but the sun rays are fantastic. Nice catch.
