Challenge: Seeing the Unseen (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Olympus C-2020Z
Location: My yard in Kilauea, HI
Date: Dec 4, 2007
Aperture: f:2.2
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/650
Galleries: Emotive, Nature
Date Uploaded: Dec 4, 2007

Taken in my yard this morning with the spectacular light.

I used iPhoto for editing
Save to web and upload

Post challenge: It is interesting to note that this is not something seen with the naked eye and has scored so horribly.

It is not possible to get the shaft of light in better focus because it is unseen until the photo is taken.

Oh, well, better luck figuring out the next challenge.

Nice capture on the light spectrum, ( and here is the nasty “but” section) I would have enjoyed to see how it interacted with the rest of the picture, like boosting the saturation of the red flowers to the right, and maybe a bit on the greens to make it all pop. IMHO.

How can this be the 'unseen' spectrum if you have taken a picture of it!
Nicely done.6
