Gizmodo Shooting Challenge: Shadows!

So that's a pretty open ended brief guys, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Include 800px wide image (200KB or less) in email. 5. One submission per person. 6. Use the proper SUBJECT line in your email (more info on that below) Send your best photo by Tuesday, September 13 at 10am AEST to [email protected] with “SHADOWS” in the subject line. Save your files as JPGs, and use a FirstnameLastnameSHADOWS.jpg naming convention. Include your shooting summary (camera, lens, ISO, etc) in the body of the email along with a story of the shot in a few sentences.

And don’t skip this story part because it’s often the most enjoyable part for us all beyond the great photos!
