Here are some of the pieces I found online that I used for inspiration for my final piece. These images struck a chord particularly because of their use of light! I really had to think about the light in my piece as the point of it was the sun coming through and lighting up the world, bringing it to bloom. These helped me to work out light and play about with some photoshop techniques until I made the beams look like sunlight.
