    Thanks, Franz. I was hoping some would agree my take on the meaning of "In the Shadows" let this image fit the category.

    Great shot, very good finding for the theme.
And you're right, it wouldn't work so well without the shadows.

    Cloned out? Oh I knew I should have just stuck this bench in front of a wall and.... ;-)

    Well the IN the shadows bit is a little tenuous though teh shadows DO help define the beauty of the texture of timbre. SO lets put that aside and say I love the sensuous curves of the bands of wood. Makes a lovely image. There is a little something along the top edge that could probably be cloned out.

    Mepo, the Title explains it all. Put camera on bench which follows the boardwalk (visible to the upper right) both of which undulate and are shaped like waves. If you look carefully, toward the top you can see the end of this bench, and the start of the next one. The idea was to create an abstract image. I thought of naming this Dunes since it reminds me of vast Sahara like sand dunes.

Thanks, Lo. What I was trying to say (unfortunately not well worded) was without the shadows, the image would not have the same impact and that I hoped this would be enough to qualify this as a shadow entry even though the subject is not itself in the shadows.

    I find the definition is a little soft but my main problem is that I follow the planks but do not know what I am looking at. I do like the colour and shapes perhaps as abstract art.

    Once I read your comment, I looked for the detailing in the shadows, and yes, it is there, but the grain and the curve of the wood are so beautifully taken, that I don't really want to look any further.
