A few weeks ago it seemed that every time I wanted to go out with my camera it was harsh daytime sunlight, so I decided to try to embrace this light and have mini project capturing shadows. Here are a few.

#'s 1 & 3 are amazing!!! (especially #3). #2 just has a lack of an interesting subject in the image, and in #4, the light is still too harsh (especially on the subjects)

I would clone out the small metal reflection just peeking in on the top right on the image in #3.

Very cool! 1 & 3 are standouts!

Thanks guys. I am pleased you like #3. This is the pool in my backyard and I look at it every day and have never seen an image worth taking until I looked for shadows. It demonstrates that if you open your eyes to new ways of thinking you can see all sorts of things.

Well, it contains everything, light/shadows, reflections, symmetry, repeating patterns, and basically a "What the Hell is it?" thought process of the viewer.

Love #3. It looks like a boat with oars.

It's an awesome new project for you :)

I'm all over shot 1, which is of course my fave of the set.
Diggin shot 3's comp and symmetry and lines - well seen again.

2x all are good shots but #1 and #3 really good concept of using shadows in composition

3rd one in the original post - the stark shadows really work. And the leaves, because leaves are always good subjects.:thumbup:

#1 and #3 for me too. So well composed in #3. As was said it looks like "oars to the water", and that first shot is spectacular. Would look awesome printed on metal.

Thansk Q1 HBG & Aub. Looks like 1 & 3 are the winners. I think after having lived with these for a couple of weeks, #1 is my fave too

Thanks for the printing suggestion HBG
