Yes, I know the title is usually stated backwards (where there is a light, there is a shadow), however, i tend to be an optimistic person so the other way around works better for me. Maybe i'd have kept it the other way if i had a creepy looking shadow instead, but i didn't so there you have it.

This photo was taken at random during a typical spring shower = mix of sun and rain, which explains why the sky is a massive grey cloud which looks like a fake background.

Very nice. I was being stingy with ribbons, but what the hell. I love this.

It's a good idea, but the photo lacks a center of interest for me. Perhaps if the shadow/light line was place according to the rule of thirds it might work better?

not sure if the message fits

this photo lacks of a border (I'd prefer there to be one, consider it as you were writting a motivational letter and following certain rules) but I do like the message and the view

A great phrase for this photo. The cast of shaddows on the buildings is very interesting, and creats some cool shapes. This is not normally somehting that will go well here due to these shaddows, but with the phrase and challenge, is quite a good submission. Sections of the buildings though appear a little blown out.
