I had been working on many lighting effects with my Peacock Tail feather last week, for the texture competition and then we got the big snow fall. I opted for the photo of golf carts covered with pristine snow because I knew I couldn't get that shot again. Then, this week, the perfect competition: Lighting! I had been working on everything from soft to bold. Based on the comments I've been getting, I opted for the bold this time.

An effective and dramatic image, the slight highlights and subtle lighting, while technically perfect, isn't necessarily "creative" rather than a demonstration of as a "how to". If this were a different challenge, it would be a sure ribbon winner. However, there is nothing overly creative in this image and as such rates lower than it should - it really is a terrific image, just wrong place at the wrong time.

Beautiful detail, but I feel the lighting on this is too harsh and glaring.
