I like it- its the tree that sets off the composition and makes the frame gel together.
5 Oct 2009 5:29am
Or when the shadows play with people! In autumn they lie down to play better with the forms, the presence of a person in the foreground give reality to the fairy world!
5 Oct 2009 5:33am
A shadow world with a bit of substance added. What a marvelous composition! I love this one.
5 Oct 2009 5:34am
These are dramatically angled shadows. Cool shot, and the quote from Buddha is pretty cool, too! :-)
5 Oct 2009 5:56am
Amazing shadow play. What can we see: A person using a mobile phone, a tree and you taking the photo? Very cool.
5 Oct 2009 6:02am
Beautifully composed. Love the shadows especially the one of the tree.
5 Oct 2009 6:09am
I love it, very cool shot !

Lovely work as always :)
5 Oct 2009 6:40am
yeah too bad buddism doesn't make you joyful lol... good quote to go with the picture tho.. i like the tree and the skinny person lol
5 Oct 2009 7:02am
Fantastic capture. The shadow play is fabulous! Well done.
5 Oct 2009 7:05am
Love how he leaves the place but not his shadow, love how yours is like a sweet kid by this superb tree, and enjoy the quote, so clever again in duet with your photo : positive vibes are gift, thanks for both*
5 Oct 2009 7:25am
good b/w work and a nice composition. i like it.
5 Oct 2009 7:37am
I adore these shades. The detail of the leg of the traveller is a success and gives much life to the composition
5 Oct 2009 7:58am
Fantastic shadow-work. Love the sharp clarity...the contrast. Truly excellent!!!

You really know how to capture my heart & mind, Sharon. What a grainy beauty, what a brilliant photograph! Your shadows have & always will rock this little soul of mine. Great piece of art! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Turn your face to the sun, then the shadows will fall behind you - the person on the left obviously follows this advice !
Nice shot !

Like in Plato's Cavern, we only see the shadows od reality. Well done and good idea.
5 Oct 2009 10:34am
5 big stars for you today Sharon. Something of a cartoon here. And always this very stylish mono of yours. My favorite. :-))
5 Oct 2009 10:53am
@zOOm: Thanks so much Florence. I'm so happy you say what I wanted to achieve...the "cartoon" figure of the shadow man :D
Fantastic shot - love the composition
5 Oct 2009 10:56am

He and the tree have bent. I like the exquisite framing.
5 Oct 2009 12:42pm
bien vue le jeu d'ombre ...
5 Oct 2009 12:51pm
there is something freakily cool about that shadow scene you captured here.. the way it looks so contorted is what makes it really interesting.. great work capturing this scene here.. :D
5 Oct 2009 1:29pm
What a fantastic idea (instincts) and so beautifully executed!!! Inspiring! Pure joy to look at this Sharon!:-)))
5 Oct 2009 1:37pm
Love this mysterious photo.. Brilliant idea and composition!
5 Oct 2009 1:53pm
the energy here is just spectacular! very fitting Buddha quote, too.
5 Oct 2009 2:32pm
A wonderful capture Sharon! The photographer and the text messenger..... ;-)
5 Oct 2009 2:36pm
nice angle, cool contrast. I like it very much.
and nice words of Buddha.
and nice feeling of Denim of him.
5 Oct 2009 2:41pm
Creative use of shadows.
5 Oct 2009 3:01pm
Love this photo. Love the contrast between the tree and the guy walking with his cellphone (at least that's what I assume he's holding). Fantastic!
5 Oct 2009 3:19pm
A nice , simple and playful graphic image. Looks like every person's busy using their eyes and hands here,...me as well.
Have a good day Sharon.
5 Oct 2009 3:26pm
love it, especially the connection between shadow and person.
5 Oct 2009 3:36pm
very very nice
5 Oct 2009 3:52pm
cela ressemble à une danse macabre !
5 Oct 2009 4:20pm
beautiful shadow work -- i know i have mentioned it before -- but your shadows take on a magical 3rd dimension!! awesome!
5 Oct 2009 4:22pm
Les histoires de fantômes sont jours fascinantes!
5 Oct 2009 4:51pm

Great shot! I love the light and shadows. Very well captured
5 Oct 2009 6:51pm
Fascinating shadows and mysterious atmosphere
5 Oct 2009 6:54pm
Fantastic composition-love the combination of the shadows of the tree and the person.
5 Oct 2009 6:57pm
I love the idea of associating the shadow of the person and that of a tree, a beautiful photo, Sharon!
5 Oct 2009 8:16pm
Dynamite shadows. Superb quote.
5 Oct 2009 8:43pm
Hard to comment after all those people, it's like all was still said... Indeed : Great composition !
5 Oct 2009 8:52pm
wow, what a creative photo!
5 Oct 2009 8:55pm
I agree with that quote more then you can imagine...
Great shot to go with it...
5 Oct 2009 9:05pm
Very creative! You know, I like the sayings of Buddha but sometimes he gets on my nerves... Makes it difficult to achieve nirvana.... instead of nerve-ana..
5 Oct 2009 9:50pm
Wow!! Your photos are amazing. What an inspiration!! : )
5 Oct 2009 11:20pm
Thank you for this joyous photo - and the wisdom of Buddha.
6 Oct 2009 1:51am
Amazing how thoughtful you are of street life and always come up with such amazing work.
6 Oct 2009 2:06am
I like the power of B & W in these three images, beautiful composition !
6 Oct 2009 4:41am
A great shot...made so much more powerful by your use of the timeless wisdom from the quote to describe this wonderful capture! Superbly creative when you realize how most of us strive to avoid our own shadows in our pictures:)
6 Oct 2009 6:47am
So true is the quote and your image is a good illustration - although the shadow isn't yours. Love the person, tree and the peak of the third shadow. The photographer I wonder??
6 Oct 2009 6:48am
Beautifully composed capture!
6 Oct 2009 9:41am
Such cohesion of those essentially separate elements. So well done!
6 Oct 2009 11:29am
6 Oct 2009 1:59pm
... and yours too, i presume. Great composition and b&w tones.
6 Oct 2009 2:07pm
Très belle compo de cette photo qui se joue de l'ombre et de la lumière !
6 Oct 2009 4:12pm

6 Oct 2009 5:08pm
6 Oct 2009 7:24pm
nice shot of the shadows tree. i like how you added the tree for this shot, the candidness stands out well. =]
6 Oct 2009 8:43pm
You always choose the most amazing and unique crops. This is no exception. It is like the two figures know each other but are separated by a sea of distance. Very poetic.
7 Oct 2009 12:53am
Haha, I think the person infront of you is texting! I like the graphic you've created, boom boom boom boom- four dark and strong shapes over a white background. Nice shot.
7 Oct 2009 1:20am
Excellent composition.... dig the silhouettes.
7 Oct 2009 3:37am
wonderful compositon! A great shadow game!
7 Oct 2009 12:32pm
Wow Sharon!.....great shadow work!

i like your idea .
7 Oct 2009 6:12pm
Tessssssssss ... I like it.
7 Oct 2009 7:43pm
Great shadow capture. His extra leg joint is very cool!
7 Oct 2009 9:05pm
Has sort of a Millennium feel to me.
8 Oct 2009 2:18am
Great shot, good composition!
8 Oct 2009 5:14am
fleeting ghost of you, chasing the ghost of him, trying to pin him down on paper/photo/screen.
a photo of nothing, light and the absence of light, yet a photo of
him/her doing what they do everyday, the place (i love shadows of trees!) and you, doing what you do everyday.
8 Oct 2009 8:18am
Merveilleux jeu d'ombres.
8 Oct 2009 9:56am
Well chosen composition and photo mats are a kind of climate :)
8 Oct 2009 10:36am
Gran composicion, me gusta mucho la vision que has tenido en esta fotografia.
8 Oct 2009 10:46am
very cool distorted reflections !
8 Oct 2009 12:11pm
revisiting this shot - i loved the framing here so much! :)
8 Oct 2009 2:50pm
Me encanta este juego de sombras.
8 Oct 2009 5:37pm
So clever as always, this quotation linked with the shadows that follow us all, our and other's one... We become what we think, we become a bit as well how we love and live (but i don't pretend to compete with Buddha :))
8 Oct 2009 11:51pm
That quote fits this photo VERY well, the balance you have here between shadow and light is just right!
9 Oct 2009 6:47am
Fantastic play of light ! Well done !
9 Oct 2009 7:37am
10 Oct 2009 3:54pm
Ohhh ! Very creative. Congratulations !
