Theme day: SHADOWS

     Please click to enlarge!

This is my choice for theme day, Shadows. I was walking along Corso Portoni Borsari when I was attracted by this bright slice of light on the side of San Giovanni in Foro Church. The opposite buildings cast the shadows that produced this amazing contrast!

Valeria, what a fantastic image! Capturing the guy walking - absolutely between the shadows is perfect. A lovely shot and so original.

This is quite superb. You have captured the moment just perfectly. To have waited for the human to give it size and movement is inspired. Very well done. I like this so much ...

A stunning composition and contrast. When shadows was chosen as the theme, certainly no one could have envisioned anything so creative.

This is an amazing catch. The shadows are such an important element for this picture to play up the lighted center of interest . . . well done.

I saw this on CDP and was one of my favorites. Great shot, Valeria. I didn't have one for the theme day :(.

wow! perfect timing.

This is a spectacular interpretation of the theme. It's almost like an art class project. Most people would have concentrated on the guy in the photo but the main theme is the shadows around him.

You are BRILLIANT!! I bet you are a smart student when you were in school because you think over the project instead of merely just photographing some shadows.
