i was going trough some old photos pressing ctrl-i in ps to see what might be interesting as a negative. found the old image of "zebra", looked great. all i have to do is find a model and arrange a shooting. the problem was that the original image was taken on a bright day. no sun today :( i removed the blinds and used the flash with a soft-box. to get nice shadows the light has to be as far as possible from the blinds and the model as close as possible. took a couple of shots and picked this one for not being to provocative. got couple of nice shots in non-negative mode as well :)

Well, this is fantastic! Not only because of the impact of the image. But simplicity together with creativity and nailed to the challenge description in the perfect balance.
Really, really, very good image. I will try to make this one ASAP. Very good! Congrats!

Here is the image that I took some years ago and that inspired me to shoot the one for the competition:

Back to comment: My favorite zebra shot of the challenge. For me, this is one of the best negatives of a B&W in the challenge. I think the negative ended up looking better than the positive (yes I switched it back to see what the contrast was before turning into a negative). Nice job.

Sensational. Oh my goodness. There are just SO many incredible images in this challenge. But this stands out for it's deceptive simplicity. This is a study of lines - straight ones, curved ones, thin ones, thick ones. And of light and shadow. Magnificent.
