Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "The Shadow Knows"

Description
: Photographs where a shadow is the main subject. Note: Silhouettes do not count as shadows.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules including but not limited to the following:

Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however).

See the Rule for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farkography Forums

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forums (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

I like how this shadow gives the impression of the plane being in motion, as though it's heading towards the viewer rather than simply hanging from a ceiling, forever stilled and retired.

Oddly, this was my view from inside an EZ-UP on a film that involved a concentration camp. But this was just random and had nothing to do with the film, or what we were shooting that day.
