Frank P. Luongo     Wonderful composition Brenda!
Love the lines and especially the shadows.Round table combined with lines
makes this a striking image.

How did you get the shadows on the table blue?

Wow! EXCELLENT shot, Brenda! Who knew a table and chair could be so dramatic? ... Outstanding contrasts, both with light and shapes! Love how the shadow lines on different planes warp the perspective!

Thanks, Dan and Frank! Yes, Dan, who knew...but you find images everywhere if you just really look at the world.

The blue shadows are from the light of open sky. Here, there was big blue sky above the lattice roof, so the ambient light of the sky, the blue light, made the shadows blue. It wouldn't have worked as well if the table was brown or any other color but white!
