Light and its quality is the basic element of photography. There is an iconic photograph of Grand Central Station with streams of sunlight filling the airspace as it reflects off dust particles in the air. In photography the same subject, nothing more than a snapshot at one time of day, becomes an impactful image at another. Sunsets are beautiful and midday sun is harsh. A strategically placed light can create amazing portraits; late afternoon is a world of shadow and light that warms everything it touches.

For this call we are looking for images where the presence, absence, and/or the location of light made the difference. Glare, flare, shadow, fill light all work as do lampshades aglow from an inside bulb, night lights in a city, streaming rays of sunlight on a floor or as seen passing through a dusty atmosphere. There are examples everywhere.
