    goodness, quite the young lady- in looks at least, you may have other ideas of course as you live with her.. those were the days, my daughter is 23 now, and perfectly lovely , as I am sure Kara is !!! All the time....
    reminds me of a Peter Pann film, some-one lost their shadow, perhaps Kara has found it !!

    If I hadn't read some of the comments here I would not notice that she had two shadows. Clearly the composition worked because I focused on where the hands joined.

    Cheers Adam

    Clever concept and well executed. Nice work
  • Out_and_About said:
    Well done - loved it as soon as I saw it in my contacts page! Very creative.
  • David de Groot said:
    Oh ?
    Thanks :)
    Whoot! Thanks Bennie, I'll look forward to your visit. Anything in particular you want to hit while up here ? I'm sure we can organise something.
    And yes, Kara's definitely in that period commonly referred to as "blossoming" I believe ;-)
    Oh yes Helen, she's actually fairly good company most of the time now. Gone are the nightly hell-storms, now they're just a relatively rare occurrence.
    Definitely Peter Pan-ish ;-)
    Thanks Adam :)
    Didn't turn out half bad eh Ross.
    Thanks Michelle :)

  • aramisfirefly said:
    Brilliant eye to create and spot this Dave. Fantastic.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Jack :)
    Allan came up with the concept after I shot the shadow, so it was a bit of a group effort ;-)
  • meerkat woman said:
    very cool
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :) You should do something like this with the elephants, they could grab the tail of their shadows or something like that ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    She's 14 dude, I think I'll decline. :P

    nice work
  • apurdam (Andrew) said:
    Nice work! I must try more compositing. But that means lugging a tripod around...
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
    A tripod would have helped, that's for sure. This one was handheld, and I had to clone in one corner because they didn't quite line up.
  • apurdam (Andrew) said:
    Well, that's excellent for handheld, then, I must say.
