Challenge: Your Shadow (Advanced Editing I)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Location: My hole
Date: Feb 2, 2004
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/45 sec
Galleries: Humorous, Emotive
Date Uploaded: Feb 2, 2004

I never understood why seeing the shadow means 6 more weeks of winter - I thought it is a harbinger of spring if the sun is shining. oh well.

For this shot, I cut a hole in my foamboard, and rested it on 2 chairs. Tripod mounted, manual focused camera on a 10 second timer let me get into position. I took many shots - it was hard to get details correct. My eyes would look wierd or my fingers wouldn't be positioned nicely or something else would be wrong. I needed to do some perspective correction in this final version because I had pulled too much on the board, bending my "horizon". Thanks for the fun quick challenge!

I really like the thought behind this one. Wish the shadow itself was a little more pronounced. Gave me a chuckle; clever.

This is the funniest shot I have seen in a long time! Excellent idea. The addition of the hands really works for this shot. Too bad the left part of the shadow is paler than the rest: this could have been easily fixed in PS. You have done a great crop with this and the B&W treatment works very well. Good luck.

this one made me smile. I love the expression.

superb, not much point telling you what's right with this in detail, I can't say anything negative - there's nothing to say.

Not the best shadow, but the classiest idea here. Good composition, tones, acting, and setup. I hope this wins. You have my vote.

Great tones and even better expression! Love this in B&W and also the negative space works well. Great shot!

I just had to add that everytime I look at this shot it makes me laugh. The humor here is fantastic. Thanks for this picture! (bumped up to a 10) :-)

Cute concept, nicely lighted and exposed. IMHO the shadow could have been more sharply defined, but that's really kind of picky. Nice shot.
