Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. The judge states: Make (or find) compelling images where the shadow is the star, but it gives us hints about the identity of its “parent.” These should be well-thought-out images. Have fun, and be creative! Note: the judge will also be looking for images that illustrate the theme in an interesting way that engages the viewer; plus normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.
