Shadows' Jump

By starstriders
A little experiment in the garden with my dog. It's my shadow and I took the pic from about waist-height.

A very surreal looking shot, I like the shadows looking stretched and extended.

Thanks, well, a lot of effort from the dog! LOL! I just stood there and waved a plastic bottle at her! 80 shots (and 80 jumps) later, I got the one I wanted. Wink

You've done well not to get the camera shadow in shot. Good attention to detail. Did you stretch the image, or were the shadows really that long?

Thanks. No manipulation at all. Just a sunny evening on the lawn. I had to be careful not to get the flowerbeds in shot, keep my arm down by my side + dealing with the dog leaping at me!

Well...given the number of attempts I think a lot of the credit should go to my dog who did the hard bit! Wink
