Oh boy ,really hard!

1st place: 3 points go to "Sunset at Lone Star" by Joe_Lorenzini
Beautiful colors! Nice mood!

2nd place:
2 points go to "Naked" by TKO

Love the tender mood!

Chris101, always a different approach!
RFCNIKON, perfect street-life!

Vinod Menon, we had a similar idea!

Such an enlighting challenge ! I regret I was unable to particpate.

Congrats to each and every participant.

I cast my vote :

1st place : Naked by TKO. If this one had to be hung, it would have to be from the ceiling and not on the wall !

2nd place : In the Shadow by MCS. A tribute to the art of photography : reveal the world of light in which we are but a shadow.

3rd place : Into the light by Boobie Joe. A superb image is like a clear morinng breaking out.

There were so many good submissions and everyone had such a unique way to express their views on "Light & Shadow". This was very hard to judge, but my three are:

3pts - Rapman1959 Forest Light

2pts - NB23 Strictly Light & Shadow

1pt - Vinod Menon Tennis

Congrats ahead of time to the winner,
Joe

#1: NB23 for the figure study... a masterful use of light and shadow to create an erotic but tasteful composition

#2: Vinod for Tennis... a wonderfully creative piece

#3: RFCNIKON for the saxaphone player... an image well seen and rendered.
