When my daughter sees a sunset like this one, she will point and say “Look at the God rays!!!” and I must admit I am a sucker for them. 😉So what is it about sun rays that are so appealing?

For me they bring drama and excitement to the image.  The rays draw the eyes in and along the rays making your eyes and your imagination work.

The concept of lines can be used in all sort of photography and is especially powerful in portraits.

Lines come in many forms and can be anything form of a rail or walkway, a road or wall… Next time you are out taking portraits see what lines you can add to your photos and you will be surprised how much more interesting your portraits will become.
