[Pics] Flickr Spotlight #4 – 15 Images Of Natural Light Beams

Natural light beams are always magical. You dont get to see them too often, but when you do - you have to stop and stare for a second. This week I collected 15 of the best light beam images found of Flickr. Look at the images below and share with us in the comments your own light beam photos.

Not natural light beams, at least in Adrian pictures

Some of those beams are nicely photoshopped

That's a grim basketball court if I've ever seen one.

Feels like 90% of the popular flickr images today are photoshoped waaay too much. Either by things like this, or unbelievably crappy HDR convertions, too much sharpening etc. etc.

Yeah, some nice selections but some of those beams are not real. I know because I've done that before. Tjarko's pic for example.

Please, for the love of God, don't post anything like this again. There are enough of these stupid "23.6 TOTALLY FANTASTIC AMAZING PICTURES OF X" on the internet that just fish Flickr for complete crap, I come to fstoppers for decent content. 

Half of the sunbeams aren't even real, did you even look at this list before you posted it?

sit down, have a coco, the aneurysm should pass.

But indeed, content on FS seems to have dropped alot since the number of collaborator increased. Not saying you're doing a bad job (I'm still here so...) but it seems like the effort to show something different is not there. I realize this is 2 months old, but still.

Take a look at David Hobby, Joe Mcnally or Zack arias. Fewer posts, richness in each. and. every.one. of. them. ALL.

the good post here are diluted in a bath of less than good or average ones.... put some filters on!
