Challenge has finished
This challenge is all about shadows, but the entries MUST be nature-based. This is a colour challenge, so no black and white, or monochromatic entries please. The subjects of your entries is up to you, but must be natural. Man-made objects or constructions should be minimal, and not the subject of your picture; no humans, or domestic pets. The shadows must be shadows, NO reflections or silhouettes accepted. For this challenge: SHADOW: A dark image caused on a surface by light. It is not the object itself, but the shape of the object created by blocking the light. REFLECTION: An image that is seen in a mirror or shiny surface, or one given back by a reflecting surface. SILHOUETTE: A dark shape in front of a light background. The silhouette shows an actual subject, but with the background lit so that the subject's details are not seen, just their shape. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600 pixels on its longer side.
