Panachallenge #177 Shadows is underway.

"The challenge theme is self-explanatory. Use your creativity and expertise to create a photo that you feel exemplifies the theme. Here are some links to get you started.

http://digital-photography-school.com/20-shadow-images-to-inspire-you/

http://mashable.com/2013/10/22/photo-challenge-shadow-photos/#d1Bb9qRw.8qh

http://www.lightstalking.com/photographing-shadows/

The winner of the Open Category will choose the next challenge theme.

Note: This challenge, we are still experimenting with delaying the displaying of the post-processing info until after the voting is over. So, be sure to disclose all the techniques and processes you used that may help members understand how you crafted your photo. Describe any special in-camera settings you used. In the extra info section, along with the usual info, let us know if your image consists of multiple exposures. "

Entry period: Thu 8 Sep through Thu 29 Sep 23:59:59 UTC
Voting: Fri 30 Sep through Mon 3 Oct 23:59:59 UTC

You may submit entries taken with a Panasonic Lumix (and their Leica cousins) digital camera to the main category, and/or you may submit entries taken with any digital camera to the open category. The theme applies to both categories.

Your photo for either category must be taken during the entry period, starting Thu 8 Sep.

Good luck!

Some wonderful examples in these links!

I think the challenging part of this challenge is to be in the right place at the right time, if you are relying on the sun as the source of your shadows.

Are we going to get "the shadow is not your subject" comments on this? I'd say most likely.

John, nowhere in the challenge does it say that the shadow must be the subject. When we asked NEAT if she would like to qualify the theme description she said she wanted to leave it to the photographers as to what they felt best exemplified the theme. And of course, voters will have their own perceptions as well.

I'll be heading off to an area where internet access may be a challenge. Many thanks to Bernie for picking up the slack and finalizing the entries for this challenge. Fortunately I'll be back in time to vote - good luck everyone.

Any particular "challenges" anyone faced with this challenge? Mine was not having enough time to shoot what I had in mind, so I had to settle for something more convenient.

Same here. Seemed like I had three choices, 1) mindlessly walk around hoping to spot wonderful shadows, 2) have a great subject in mind but have to figure out exactly when to be there for the sun to be in the right position, or 3) create my own shadow.
