RESULTS – ‘The Shadow Knows’

Posted by

Shadows were the stars of this week’s photo contest: ‘The Shadow Knows’. The judge comments:

“It was great to see some images that really got at the meat of the contest. There was imagination, whimsy, and a good sense of composition in all of the winners’ images. Those who got points for this contest really let their shadows tell the story.

“Congratulations to all for your submissions, and congratulation to the winners!”

“My Shadow Dog”
by nance kay
Judge’s Comment: “This is a strong graphic image, and there is no question of what the subject is without actually showing it. The shadow tells us the story. Oh, Noble Beast, attentive, perhaps hearing its owner.”

3rd Place Overall

Judge’s Comment: “This image shows some forethought in its composition. Catching the light just right was critical to the success of the photo, and turning it into a friendship or wedding band by the shadow is wonderful.”
