Today’s challenge was set by Sandy who says more times than not when she sees a shadow in her photo, it’s a mistake. It means that she focused so much on one part of the picture, she forgot to look at the whole. I do know that feeling? Indeed I usually delete or crop the photo.
Of course, there are times when shadows are deliberate. The play on light and dark can emphasize a shape and provide visual interest. Shadows can capture a feeling or add atmosphere to a scene. Indeed only yesterday I commented on how much I enjoyed the contrast between light and shade in Derrick’s photos.
Here’s my modest selection from near and far.
