#451 - Weekly Challenge - Shadows
Posted By: sealonsf, 03-06-2019, 06:13 PM

I was traveling and just got home so let's get this going! The theme this week is Shadows. Show me your photos where shadows play a part in the composition. Have fun and let's see how creative you can be.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

The challenge will close at midnight Thursday, March 14 Pacific Time USA.


A few examples:

Hope this qualifies, it is more like “what is lurking in the shadows”

This one was taken in a reasonably dark environment and unfortunately i was not in the jungle, so there was also a glass pane in between.

This shot has done well in other challenges. I'm trotting it out again(like a race horse) to see how it does in the "Shadows" challenge.--charliezap

I like this challenge, I try to use the contrast between in shadow and in sun areas a lot, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. This photo was taken on the public pier at Campbell River, British Columbia.
