About the Image(s)

Last spring my husband and I went to Phoenix and spent a day in Saguaro National Park. The saguaro cactus were very cool and we found quite a few in bloom. But one of my favorite photos from the trip was this one - from the visitor center! We arrived there at mid-day and found these amazing shadows around the building. Monochrome was definitely the way to go. I loved the graphics of the shadows, though thought the image needed a focal point. So I added the rabbit. That's about the extent of my compositing capabilities.

Really nice image - super creative. The rabbit looks like he was right there in the original photo. The contrast from black to white is very good.   Posted: 03/07/2020 16:33:46

This is simply super, Brenda! The shadow patterns, being off-angle as they are, really draw the eye in. Then we're met by a little furry surprise of the bunny saying welcome and adding a touch of softness and curves to the harsh lines of the shadows. Excellent composite that shows no indication of the edit it entailed. Remarkable!   Posted: 03/08/2020 06:20:17

Brenda, Is the rabbit considering a plunge down the rabbit hole ala Alice in Wonderland? Composition is spot on!   Posted: 03/15/2020 18:25:27

Wonderful patterns. The shadows enhance volume and give depth. Rabbit is an effective contrast in texture and mood.   Posted: 03/26/2020 06:46:19
