This all we have to do? Just attach the photo? :) This is just a new pair of shoes I bought awhile ago. I thought the light play was fun.

That's my official entry. If I'd had another option, it would have been this:

Nice :)
I thought of an insanely wicked idea but it requires alot of something I don't have access to.

Quick question - I know the rules state no modifications other than minor global changes, but what about multiple exposures? It would definitely be possible If I used film, am I allowed to do it with digital?

If it means layering photos on photos then i'm unsure. I guess the general point of the photography competitions is to show people what you can do with the camera while sticking to the topic title. So, unless it's adjusting light levels or curves etc etc then i really don't know about this.

If you did it in film and scanned it in then that would be great. I've been meaning to buy a Holga camera and do some multiple exposure shots through that, the effect is amazing.

My film camera is just coming back from the shop :(
It was supposed to be back on the 25th according to Canada Post but still nothing. I'm assuming it's going to come Monday, but that doesn't leave a whole lot of time to develop the image.

Well, it's going to be strictly a photograph that's multiply exposed digitally - consider it an HDR. If it gets rejected so be it :P

I thought of another entry to do but unfortunately didn`t have access to a Fish eye at the time. I've still got the two photos on my list of things to do, though, and will post them eventually as part of a set.

The polling for this competition will be up soon, the next competition starts at no fixed date after the polling. Usually within a couple of weeks of the polling end.

No, no, not fair. If you allow 1 silhouette as a shadow then all silhouettes must qualify. I think someone already said this but, a silhouette is an actual object whereas a shadow is is a projected image of light differential. Huh? Anyway you get this gist of what I am trying to convey.

Technically no. It's not really a shadow, it's an object that has no light shining on it. A shadow is caused by light shining off something and reflecting on the ground, so i can't say i'd agree on silhouette photos as an entry.

It can be argued either way... I'd say that it is a subject that a debate would go nowhere with.

Here are the definitions:

Shadow - A dark image projected onto a surface where light is blocked by the shade of an object; relative darkness, especially as caused by the interruption of light; gloom, obscurity

Silhouette - A representation of the outlines of an object filled in with a black color; a profile portrait in black, such as a shadow appears to be

So what you're saying is that they are the same thing, it just depends on where you are looking.

I don't care how you interpret definitions. Fact is, you can stand in a shadow but you can stand in a silhouette. Try it if you don't believe.

An excellent choice, SB.

I listened to The Wall in its entirety on my trip home this weekend.
