Some really strong sunlight yesterday gave me some interesting shadows during the children's lunchtime.
Thanks for looking

Wonderful shadows and shot selection/composition, it makes one wonder how many shopping baskets are actually in the picture.

This is a great, eye-catching abstract, excellently composed, timed and cropped and making full use of light, shape and shadow. But I'm afraid I'm going to go against the grain here and say that in my completely honest personal opinion, I think that the selective colouring has spoilt slightly what is an otherwise brilliant black & white image. For me it detracts from, rather than adds to the image.

This is bloody great!!! The best shot I have seen in a while, such a graphic shot. It is bold, dynamic, the composition is outstanding. Tip top, and most certainely gets a vote from me.

High contrast and mono makes for excellent shadows here - a great effect. I think I would prefer it without the coloured handle too.

Thanks everyone. Charles I have to say on reflection I probably agree. I did the selective colouring before the high contrast and it lost impact at that point. Should have gone with gut feeling and uploaded the mono copy.
Really pleased that the main feeling of being a scary shadow has come over to everyone though, as this was what struck me.

Great composition and very well seen, Helen...I just don't have an eye for things like this and would have missed it! Great title, too. I like the selective colouring (as you may have noticed from some of my previous uploads) but would just have brought out the colour a little more...still and excellent image, though!
