Well, here goes. This really was a challenge for me as the sun is just now coming out and I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with an idea. This first challenge is a "bright idea" challenge. Could go so very many ways, but this is what I have come up with so far. I think that God had such a "bright idea" when He created the sun that this fits the challenge. :)
These really are going to be great for getting me out of my comfort zone and hopefully learning more about my camera. I don't particularly like the way the tree looks in this, but LOVE how the sun came through as a sunburst. Anyone know how I could have gotten the sunburst to stay AND get the tree to be a bit brighter? I don't know a lot about my manual settings, so I'd love some feedback.

Heather, I can't wait to see what you came up with!
