SOOC and Shadow Shots: Outside and Inside

Camera Critters is one post down

The first photo is my contribution to STRAIGHT OUT OF the CAMERA. I didn't even crop it, it just came out exactly as I saw it - I love when that happens.

The second photo is for SHADOW SHOTS. It is the corner of the bar which is on the other side of the gated window in the first photo.




I posted a B&W version of the second shot on THE WORLD IN BLACK AND WHITE

Have a great Sunday everyone! Go Steelers!!

These are great Dianne. I saw the 2nd one in B&W, it's a toss-up, but I think I like this one best.

Beautiful colors and shadows in the second photo. It looks like a very inviting window to sit at and read a book.

Nifty shadow shots this week ... I'm drawn to the second one especially. I participated LATE in Shadow Shots at Sacred Ruminations so didn't get to sign in ... such is life.
Hugs and blessings,
