When the light gets low

Evening is such a splendid time for a stroll. The “golden hour” to photographers, when the sunlight bathes everything in a golden glow. But when the sun disappears below the horizon and light fades, taking pictures becomes more difficult.

Of course there are the sunset photo opportunities.


But don’t give up there, there is more that your camera can capture. The sky will have light for some great silhouettes. Here are some of mine.




Look around, there may be plenty of opportunities for evening photos. And when it finally gets really too dark, look up. You never know what the sky might hold.

Make a “Work of Art” from this – The Result

It was an “Event” on Google+. I provided a decent, but flawed, photo with the challenge to “Make a Work of Art from this”. (See post Can you make a “Work or Art” from this?).

To my great delight 19 photographers took the challenge and submitted 23 entries (including two from myself). All of them are delightful, amazing, creative, imaginative, and well done. Here is how Google+ presents the entries by photographer:




Here just a few of the entries to provide a better view:

All these wonderful creation started with this photo:


My thanks to all who contributed,  “plused”, and commented! This was a lot of fun for all!
