This month’s theme is for subjects normally overlooked. Composed with thought and care, scenes of dereliction, abandonment, or even industry can provide some interesting images. Try looking up-close. Examples: peeling paint, rust, cobwebbed corners are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
We are looking for images with good illustrations of sharp, spiky, or prickly. Think about in nature; plants such as cactus, thorns, thistle, spring to mind, or fruit, jackfruit, durian. Look into detail photos to find the textures, close-ups or macros.
This month's theme is all about sunlight, when the sun or its effects are the main part of the image. Sunrises and sunsets would fit the theme as well as crepuscular rays, also known as God's rays, Jacob's Ladder or sunbeams. Backlighting from the sun and contre jour images are also good examples for this month's theme.
