i don't get it. i don't see any rain or shadows, and there's usually not any big green trees in the desert. but i'm not going to judge your photo on a bad title, so i digress. the white circular thing at the bottom is distracting, and i really fail to see how this fits the challenge.

Where's the rain? where are the shadows?
06/20/2002 11:48:00 AM
I wish there were more contrast with the shadows here.
06/19/2002 04:51:00 PM
I don't get it. Were you going for the shadows between the leaves? Don't understand your title either. I must be having a bad day.
Photo 8 Creativity (see above)??? Shadows 2 total 5 (I bumped you up one, hoping that it must be me and this is better than I can figure out.)

Shadows are a part of this picture, yes. Getting closer and doing something close-up/abstract may have made them more prominent. I don't know for sure. Would it have been possible to crop the chair (?) out of the bottom?

where is the shadow?

A little more contrast is needed --can't see the shadows too well.and that round thing at the bottom should be cropped off.
06/18/2002 07:34:00 PM
I can't figure out how this relates to the challenge. I only see 1.5 unremarkable shadows/shaded areas on the underside of the limbs. In general, more focus, a little lighter and crop out whatever's sticking up from the bottom and you'd have a photo that would please me...but who's out there trying to please me anyway? : )

The mailbox (is that a mailbox) in the bottom of the frame is a distraction.
06/18/2002 03:30:00 PM
There are no shadows (being the subject) in this photo.
06/18/2002 03:08:00 PM
Sorry, I just can't see any 'creative use of shadows' in this photo.
06/18/2002 11:40:00 AM
I don't see how the title fits with this picture at all. You need to do more for this challenge than just taking a picture of a tree and saying the bottom of the leaf is a shadow. What is the round thing at the bottom of the picture? Its distracting and doesn't do anything for the photograph.
06/18/2002 09:30:00 AM
Does not fit theme too well. Overexposed and no reall center of interest.
06/18/2002 03:46:00 AM
I really don't get the title, but... It's a nice enough pic, but I'm not really sure how well it fits into the "Shadows" theme.
06/18/2002 12:15:00 AM
comment ?
06/17/2002 10:58:00 PM
I'm sorry, I don't see shadows, and I don't understand the title. Am I missing something in my monitor?
06/17/2002 06:39:00 PM
Doesn't really fit shadows.
06/17/2002 06:22:00 PM
where's the shadow?
06/17/2002 06:10:00 PM
Interesting photo that is well executed but absolutely fails to evoke "shadow" to me.
06/17/2002 06:05:00 PM
06/17/2002 03:54:00 PM
What does this photograph have to do with 'shadows'?? Whatever that is a the bottom edge of the frame (trash can maybe?) probalby should have been cropped out.... I can't score much on this shot for creativity and the 'shadow' concept just isn't here... better luck next time...

Sorry, but I'm really not seeing much of a tie to the challenge here. Aside from that, the white thing poking into the shot at the bottom is distracting and there's not much else to hold my interest.

missing the sahdow

A pretty picture. I would have marked it higher if you had controled the exposure a bit more, and the chair back in the foreground doesn't add to the composition.
06/17/2002 12:41:00 PM
this should have been cropped higher, and maybe adjusted to make the a real shadow area.
06/17/2002 11:47:00 AM
Where are the shadows? It is a pretty photo but nothing in it is shadowy to me.
