Welcome back, Francesco!
Excellent contrast between the detailed permanence of the paving and the evanescence of the shadows. Someone sitting beside me is suggesting a crop, but I'm not so sure!

Welcome back, you've been missed! It's wonderful when shadows are detached from their source, they take on a life of their own. I've been scrolling up, wondering if I would prefer without any hint of real feet - I think it's actually more surreal with just those detached bits of limbs.
Unfortunately, one needs strong sunlight for this type of image. Which is why we're not uploading shadow shots from the UK.

thank you, Moira and Bill.
in fact, I've tried different modifications on this one (squared crop, cloning out the real feet), but at the end I decided to leave it as it was (I like the synchronicity of the two feet), working a bit on the contrast (it was taken in Zandwoort, not too much sun there, either!).

Looked at this one for a while trying to make up my mind about the crop. Think now your are right about it works well with the limbs

Definitely like this one with the detached feet - the shadows are not fully human; almost like some strange evolutionary creatures showing themselves in the shadows.
Welcome back!

My strange mind says crop off the feet--

I love these joyful shadows of something/someone enjoying all that open space!

Love it! It can take a few go's to get a meningful silhouette. I love that the shadows are totally detached from the feet.
