That is why, no matter how desperate the predicament is, I am always very much in earnest about clutching my cane, straightening my derby hat and fixing my tie, even though I have just landed on my head ~ Charlie Chaplin

    So what I would have done here is included a little bit more of the shadows. The fact that the head is cut off ever so slightly with the middle person really bugs me. Ultimately I would have tried to capture the entire shadow of all three persons. Anyways, congrats on the story of the week and really cool idea!

    Mike ~ This was taken at a local rib fest. Lots of people milling about, so a clean shot of a few people was next to impossible. I loved the idea, so I cut out what I didn't like in PS (vendors, pavement cracks, litter, etc.). There goes the heads... AND the worth of the image. More great feedback. Lesson: If you didn't get the shot you wanted, you didn't get it... period... ♫ let it be, yes, let it be ♫

    Thanks for stopping by, the feedback, the congrats and more knowledge to shove in my backpack for future shots.

    i shoot scenes like this a lot so i'm a expert a failed attempts.....what i find with this image is that the shadows aren't definitive enough of what we don't see

    This is funny. Following your instructions, I looked at the center shadow and the guy looks like a Hobbit in need of cranial surgery. I looked at these is post, saw the cane and that was it. No further assessments required. Lesson learned: actually look at the finished image... all of it.

    I only have guts to shot a selfie through my shadow and not being conscious about it. :-)
