photography challenge II: the show

The theme for our newest challenge was shadows. By becoming aware of the patterns created, a photographer can manipulate shadows to add depth and a little bit of drama to their photographs. I love utilizing shadows for the bit of mystery it adds, causing the viewer to linger and imagine the objects blocking the light.

Without further ado and placed in order of submission, the entries, enjoy!

... and of course their are a few prizes to be given away, as a little thank you for sharing!

This week, I have 3 vintage Wedding photographs to give away. Hand printed, hand coloured and, I thought, a sweet momento of vintage fashion and romance. Perhaps they belong in a powder room or on a dresser? gave me the numbers 9, 6, and 8. That means that Zuzana, Kitty and Rachel are the lucky winners! Congratulations to them, and everybody, really. You're a group of very talented bloggers ♥
