I shot this this morning. I'm still very early in learning, so please advise if this meets this particular assignment. Thank-you!!
The light source was reluctant to appear, but we caught it briefly.
Wow, you got snow!

I've been wanting to try one of the assignments, & I think I found a shot yesterday that fits this one.
It fits the theme alright, but it doesn't count.
No such thing as "found a shot" in this Class, unless specifically requested as such. Go out and shoot. Fresh pictures only.
I guess I just failed communication 101. What I meant by "found" was I found the opportunity while I was out shooting other stuff. My bad.
Hi Nikolai again
Is this good?
Thanks for trying!
No, not really... The light source is too dim to get the effect we're going for. We're kinda talking about "into the *blinding* light" :-)
It was below zero out when I went out this evening to snap this one.Exif
Hi Nicolai again,
Sorry for the delay. I couldn't upload my photos because of a poor connection .
Here are some I took for this assignment. Are they any better?
Yes, much! Nice entries, thank you!

While it's a very lovely shot, it does miss an important element: light source must be an important part of the frame...
I had cropped some of the sun out of the frame and have now recropped to include it again. I used levels but tried to avoid any PP that would negate the highlights. Does this help? If not, I'll keep this one on the back burner until I get something else that I like. Thanks.
BTW, this was one of those shots where the clouds suddenly shifted and I got more (strong) sun than expected.
I shot some other photos "into the light" earlier this evening, but nothing that I liked well enough to enter.
