Michael, this should be interesting. I've been quiet for some time, especially since I got my K-30, but I do keep an eye on this competition. I might just jump in with one of my spectacular creations at some time...

You've been missed! I'm looking forward to seeing your creations. I think there will be many great entries for this competition.

I'm on my way out to wake the participants!

The one and only time I ever won the P&S contest was with a "Shadows" theme, back at contest 30-something.

I actually won twice, because the judge said she didn't know which of my photos was better, but i definitely won

I'll refrain from posting those again, but I love the theme.

The shadows are where I feel at home
And Jack of Shadows was one of my favourite novels in my ill spent youth

I do see the world in colour but it looks so much better in grey tones.

Walking the line



We and our shadows



both with Panasonic FX500.

Instead, I have something to show.
