Experimenting-with-shadows homework

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I happened to be looking out my window and the setting sun was hitting the statue perfectly--lighting it up as though with a spotlight. Then I noticed the great shadow being formed on the building behind the statue, and I ran to get my camera.

Q&A with Keenie28

David H. Wells asked:
Great seeing of great light! If you look at the image at http://davidhwells.com/Crop.jpg you will see how "less is more" and how the crop makes the shadow even more prominent ( to me .)
Keenie28 answered:
Yes, I see what you mean. I wouldn't have ever thought to crop that way, so I appreciate your input. After I posted the photo my daughter told me she didn't like the pic--her eyes bypass the statue and go straight to the blue door, and she thinks the shadow looks like a man about to stab someone--YIKES! I guess I won't bother with this photo anymore. ;)
