    Shadow of the light

    Hi
    I thought I share a picture I made for an on line assignment.
    C&C is always welcome. Thoughts, and feelings about this picture is also welcome.
    Thanks for looking and taking time sharing your thoughts.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    A very interesting image from you, Raycer. You made me think a lot about this one. For one thing, my brain immediately went hyperdrive analyzing "how in the world did the shadows have that contour without an element blocking the flame and the table?" It's very unique, indeed.

    Very interesting how shadows are created and look. Perhaps we should have a monthly themed comp of 'shadows'. I was thinking of suggesting it for the next theme comp, but I opted for 'body parts' instead.

    I like your shot, but perhaps it needs just a little more space around the edges, as it looks a bit tight in the frame?

    I love it! What CD does this go to?

    I love the way the notes are so subtle that they look like grain or scratches in the wood.

    Very creative!

    PS: You may want to put your first name in the 'Real Name' section of your profile so we can politely refer to you by name. I'm not sure if your name is Maurice as per the CD cover or if that is the artist, and I don't want to call you by the wrong name...

    Hi Raycer,

    Veeery interesting indeed; is it a CD/LP cover?

    Hahaha! I debated asking the same thing. Part of me really wants to know, but part of me just likes the magical feel too it (and I worry that if the technique is something simple, it might make the shot less interesting).

    This is very interesting! (sorry to be so redundant.) The stretching shadows are kind of cinematic and ominous but, then, they're only coming from a tiny flame. I like the subtle musical notes, too.

    I don't know what piece of music this is. I looked it up but, still can't find it. That's what I want you to spill. (It's not Gaspard de la nuit, is it?)

    Hi all,
    This picture was for an assignment see link
    http://www.project52.org/project52-assignment-9.html
    It is meant to be for a classical music Cd cover.

    The picture you see is made of multiple shots and overlaid on top of each other in photoshop. Just because there
    is a light source in the picture, it is not the only light source.
