Contest - 'Shadows 2'

Post by alisonb » Wed Jul 03, 2019 9:11 am

We have previously had a Shadows contest, thought we could do it again but with a twist this time. Shadows are interesting but this time your shadow as the photographer must appear in the photo. Show us your shadow at the moment you take a photo.

The contest is open to all registered members of CT so please join in on the fun.

Deadline for entries - 21 July 2019 @ 24h00. The voting poll will be held from 22 - 31 July. All entries to be submitted via personal message to alisonb. The winner will be announced on 1 Aug. Pic dimensions should be 640x480 pix(or close to that). Please read the rules before entering.

Have fun :D

I've always tried to keep my shadow OUT of the picture taking pics of the cows!

Incidentally, everyone knows that vampires have no reflection in a mirror but few people realize that vampires cast no shadow.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

Same here. If my shadow shows, I always delete the photo. 😳
