CONTEST ENTRY: Rays of Light by MattHrkac CONTEST ENTRY: Rays of Light by MattHrkac
This is my entry for the Billy Blue Change Your World Contest; titled "Rays of Light". The entry is simply a photograph that I took earlier in the year of the sunlight (hence the title, "Rays of Light") streaming through the clouds as they open up in the distance. This photo doesn't use any other images or stock images for that matter in the creation of this work work, however I did use Photoshop Camera Raw to alter the colours as well as other properties of the work.

Reflective Statement

When I took this photo; I just looked into the distance to notice these streams of sunlight filtering through the clouds and I thought they looked really cool. I also had my camera with me at the time so I decided to take a few photos of it.

It wasn't until I looked at this photo later until I saw the bigger coincidence, if you like, regarding the whole scene. This photo was taken around the time that a cousin of mine passed away, and myself and my family were still coming to terms of and mourning the loss. Although I am not religious myself (and I stress that), my cousins side of my family is, and as such; I kind of see the image of clouds splitting and revealing streams of sunlight filtering down through them as if heaven was speaking to us (me and my family), letting us know that my cousin was safe in the hands of the almighty.

And that is, really, the background behind this photograph!
