Went looking for shadows...

I was looking for interesting hard shadows yesterday, and thought I might have a look at an old cemetery on the outskirts of the city.

Of all the images, this one really moved me the most. I deliberately kept it dark, it's a dark topic.

Went looking for shadows, came out with too many questions...
What the hell are we doing that we still haven't learnt from this, some seventy years on...

As a heads-up, this particular photostream does contain artistic nudity -- in case that isn't your sort of thing.

Mine for today, another shot from my recent camping trip to Killbear PP.

The original was a touch soft, but flickr's resizing has done something odd, in addition to the fact that it always, always bumps the contrast by a half-grade, destroying subtle shadow detail.

I'll re-upload, tonight.

Great shots. I need to get into a studio and do more people shoots. I did one a few months ago and I really enjoyed it. I am right down the road from you in Morrisville.

That's a lovely shot mustang. I really like the careful composition, where the line of the background is carried down with the cascade of her hair. Bravo.

Yup, the shutter fired by accident. I'm waiting to sell the shot to Microsoft, for $$$, as their default desktop image...

Chess anyone?

Some of our homeschool friends at the park the other day after a debating session.

A MS desktop image was my first reaction, too. Then I wondered if it was an accidental shutter fire.

Monterey Cypress and the fog - always beautiful. Nicely captured. I'm curious - have you tried rendering this in B&W?

Thanks for the compliment and the B&W suggestion. I added a quick B&W version to the original post. C&C welcome.

I am debating whether I want to trade that Sigma for a Canon 17-40L. You see, the Sigma has been good to me but more and more I'm growing dissatisfied with soft corners. Also, I am planning on going for a full frame camera (eventually at least) and that lens will not work with a FF camera.
Interesting. Thanks for all that info. You have some awesome pics on smugmug!

Doylem's photograph reminded me of this image, which was also an accidental shot.
