    rd52 - Thanks. To answer - all I did was clone out the rider, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

    I really like your shot. You'll have to let me know how you accomplished it.

    el- I had the idea but was dreading the pp. I took another photo of the spot as soon as the rider had passed with the intention of combining two photos. As it turned out, cloning out the rider was very easy so I went with that.
fc - I guess you didn't read the extra info
aoc, Phil, Thank you
Elyod - Sorry to disappoint you. If it had been a blond in a bikini I would probably have cloned out the shadow instead - just for you LOL
Steve - Do you mean the rider or the photographer :-))) (Thank you).
OldFinn - I aplogize. It was a joke. I appreciate how difficult my long 'extra info' must be for anyone who's first language is not English. I hope this will explain it better:
International Shadow Day har förklarats till den 21 september varje år. På denna dag, alla skuggor får lämna sin värd bakom och tillbringa hela dagen - från morgon till kväll, i bra väder - vandra i världen med fullständig frihet. Denna skugga bestämt sig för en tur på cykelvägen . Var skulle din skugga åka?

    Actually, my shadow had a lot of interesting places it wanted to visit, so I've decided to follow it.

    This is a great capture and certainly fits the theme. High in my TT

    Suits to the theme, but where is the bike itself?

    A unusual idea and top marks for the editting, but I, personally, would have preferred the cyclist to be in the shot. On my shortlist.
