I don't know why, but I don't like the shadows here. I think the image would be stronger without them.

framed poorly

I know moving shots are hard to compose, but I would have waitied for the man to completely emerge from the shadow. Technically good photo.7

Nice title. I like how the shadow is angled. 5

I really like the way the walker is positioned and his shadow before him on the pavement. I don't know that I am keen on the shadows behind him - I think the paving would work better as negative space without that added detail - if it were all uniform. I am also wondering about whether it would be more interesting to see him walking into the space than out of, though this choice does raise question about what's infront of him.

I love the effect of the shadows here. It feels like the end of a long, hard day at the office.

I feel my eyes drawn towards the shadow rather than the man. Maybe if it was cropped more ?...

Nice shot, wish the shadow of lamp was gone at the top. ?Too picky. :) Good luck. Score 6 Justine

Too many intruding shadows and white lines. Good try, though.
