I thought about using this one for the vfxy theme "Shadows", but changed my mind at the last moment

This is very nice Ellie: intriguing & subtle too
EJWilkins: Glad you like it Chris smile

I really like this one. I don't know where you took it, but the window looks like a shoji screen. The shadows are wonderful!
EJWilkins: It's a window made of little panes of "leaded lights", outside is a tall tree.

Ellie, I can't explain it, but I like this one alot. It's mysterious but has a nice presence about it. Like a good story.
EJWilkins: It's a nice old building, it all feels sort of comfy. I agree about the "mystery" though, perhaps because the leaves were moving
cool and spooky shadows Ellie!
EJWilkins: Slightly, because some of the leaves were moving

Even though the shadows are sharp it still has a sense of movement in it for me. I can imagine the tree swaying in the wind and thus the shadow moving across the window.
EJWilkins: The leaves outside were moving, but the window was still, so you're right - there was movement smile

Very mysterious looking - I can't quite make it out, but I like it a lot.

EJWilkins: It's an old window and the shadows of leaves from the tree just outside wink

Difficult choice Ellie. This is very good but I think I prefer the steps you chose
EJWilkins: I think the other is, technically, slightly better, but I think this one's more comfy
spooky shadow work
EJWilkins: Yes, with the leaves moving around

I like this very much. The shadow on the left hand-side would also work as an image in it's own right too. Lovely stuff!
EJWilkins: It could, and I think that part of the window on its own would have a slightly ominous feeling to it, with the leaves moving around
Very nice and intriguing Ellie! Is this a reflection?
EJWilkins: No, it isn't, it's sun shining through a window. There's a tree outside.
Good shot Ellie AND A NICE WEEKEND
EJWilkins: You have a nice weekend too Albert smile
Lovely, subtle shadowplay, Ellie. (:o)
EJWilkins: Yes, gentle, and not too sharp the wall isn't exactly smooth and the leaves were moving. I liked it though smile

Beautiful, with an eerie potential.

Could be a little spooky if you are there alone, and yet the delicate light and shadow is a joy
EJWilkins: I'd be really happy to watch these shadows moving, but I can see what you mean smile
I think i like this one better than the one you chose! I like the subtlety of this.
EJWilkins: Actually, I do too, I think this one's friendlier.
I think you made the right choice, Ellie. This is perhaps a little too soft and out of focus. Great image though.
EJWilkins: The leaves outside were moving, so their shadows aren't sharp. Thought it was fun though. smile

I like the mystery here smile Is it a reflection or?
EJWilkins: It's shadows of a window and leaves moving on a tree outside, not a reflection smile
Should have saved it for Halloween Ellie, you can just feel the spirits lurking in the branches outside.
EJWilkins: Oh goodness, I hadn't even thought of Hallowe'en!

I like the subtlety in this, Ellie, very understated but very effective.
EJWilkins: Thanks Alan, that's a nice way to describe it smile

Intriguing, yes and I like the framing to boot.
Shadows is a subject I have never thought about doing Ellie. Your pictures tempt me to give at a try.
Lovely theme Ellie, nice sight.
I think this one is the better one.
