Sunrays 6
Sunrays 6! W00t! 😀

Saw this outside my door, so I ran out into the street snapping pictures. It’s amazing what pops up if you watch the sky every evening. These were the most impressive beams of light and darkness I’ve seen; I didn’t even have to edit much. I did a bit of dodging and burning, and added contrast with the curves tool, but that was it.

The light is good. Let the light guide you to courageously fulfilling your dreams and aspirations. But like any good sunset, your dreams are always on the move. I know that, because these sunrays disappeared just a few minutes after I found them.

  1. I must say I really like your editing when it comes to these pictures. Again a very nice edit I think. Adding diversity to the colors really improves the feeling.

    1. Thanks Alexander! It’s easy to go overboard, and when I was new to editing I would not edit enough. The key is striking a balance.

    1. It’s the RSS feed widget included with WordPress which I added my Twitter RSS feed to under Design > Widgets. Go to http://twitter.com/home when you’re logged in, scroll down to the left, click the button that says “RSS”, and copy the URL from the address bar, then input it in the WordPress RSS Widget box where it says “Enter the RSS feed URL here:.” My Twitter RSS feed, for example, is:

    1. Sure, go ahead! Look at the line where it says “Download a perfected high-res JPEG or download the source image (Canon Rebel XTi RAW file).” in the post; you can click those links to get a high-res version or the source file for this photo. Most of the other photos I post are similarly available, and you can use them for any purpose (be sure to credit me with a link back to http://richardxthripp.thripp.com/ though).
