Racing with your shadow

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 8 September 2011 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Joggers – trying to catch their shadows for I don't know how many miles!

I am on the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin for this mini series. You can see the Kings Avenue Bridge in the background.

A wonderful combination of elements in this very pleasing black and white compo; not only the shadows and motion toward the camera, but a beautiful tree with its own type of movement.

Great contrast in this B&W image. The tree and the shadow make for a great composition. With your framing, you've made this tree as if it were in motion.
