here are some more shadows from the wall of the dock in the harbor. the wall is there to prevent boats from docking on the outer side. i doubt that whoever put the wall there intended it to be so but it doubles as a screen for shadows of the boating guests and bypassers.
this entry shot has been edited to give the shadow a 3D effect. this was done by maximizing the whiteness of the wall, reducing the overall clarity while increasing saturation. normally i want the shadow to be sharp so i might increase clarity but for this shot i have done the opposite
in the original unedited the legs and the comical unnatural bend are more prominent. by making the wall so white i lost much of that aspect
for this mermaid shot i whitened the wall but here increased the clarity. the cracks in the wall just happened to fit the shadow. these shots are candid with moving subjects so i didn't even notice the cracks until i saw the photo.
edited to black and white with max white and high contrast and clarity
if that arm was any lower...
