I got this one with a friend of mine (thanks Hugo) when I had an idea about a bright ray of light behind a subject.
We were able to find a very nice sewer line (out of commission, of course :) and then I set the flash behind him and triggered remotely.

[After Challenge]
YEES!! I'm just so glad to get the blue, there were a lot of great shots in this challenge, that focused more on the chair than I did, so I was always thinking one of them could win.

Oh, and da mis take abaut light and ligth, my phat phingers...

Thanks to all the great comments, it's been a really fun week to see this one on the voting phase.

Cheers
Joao

Wow, this is cool. Very much deserving of a ribbon. You could send a ticket to the SC and ask them to change the spelling, I'm sure they wouldn't mind.

What? When? Where?
Another one?

Cheers!
I'm spending my stash of congratulations on you!
This is a great photo on so many levels, unfortunately I'm missing a lot of action on the Member Challenges. One of these days you are going to tell me the story behind this setup.

Keep it up (oh wait, there is no up from here!) ;)
