Post image for Photo Challenge Winners | A Touch of Sun

The photo challenge entries this week featuring a “touch of sun” were so beautiful! We love the cooler evenings we are experiencing right now…it’s the perfect time to head out and capture that beautiful golden hour. Whether using that golden light to light your subject or capturing beautiful sun flare, it’s very easy to say that we are totally in love with the sun!  If you haven’t checked out all of the entries yet, sit down, make yourself a cup of joe, and wander through them. We promise you will be inspired and will find many new ideas for enhancing your own work.

1st Place: Leilanni Rogers

This week’s Guest Photographer Judge was Laura Kathryn of Lark Photography. We were not jealous of her difficult job this week! She said of the beautiful winning photo by Leilanni Rogers: This is such a stunning image and embodies the theme so perfectly! I love that it is just a touch of sun and not overpowering the image. It has a sense of youth and innocence. The composition and movement is really lovely. I just want to jump in the image and join the fun!

2nd Place: Stacey Shippy

I must have something for wings this week ha ha! This image was a very close race to the first. The color, light, and pose make me feel relaxed and calm.

3rd Place: Stines Hjem

4th Place: My Four Hens

5th Place: Elle Photos

6th Place: Sonomi J

7th Place: Smarsh1212

8th Place: Karen Schneider
