Wow, wow, wow! I’m sure guest judging is always difficult, but you guys blew me away with your {IN THE SHADOWS} images. So instead of five featured images this week, we have SIX, plus a Top Honors winner!

It’s been so great getting to learn about some of you this week, through your comments and photos. And thank you to Dear Photographer, for asking me – Lisa at lisa kathan photography – to post some thoughts this week about my own photography and creative process!

I love the story in this image: two little lions, taking over the forest. I especially appreciate that the photographer shot them from behind. Absolutely precious!

Such a beautiful faceless portrait from Rose. If you’re familiar with her work, Rose is a master at shadowy portraiture. Love the beautiful tones in this one!

I mentioned this week that I love a banality in art, but this one goes a step beyond with a shadowy woman in the image. This particular image was part of a larger project by the photographer, a tribute to Francesca Woodman (you can check out the collection on her timeline).

Who doesn’t love good freelensed image?! This one has beautiful light, shadow, tones, flare…all with a tinge of sadness.

This faceless, shadowy portrait leaves so much unsaid, and yet it says so much.

A great silhouetted image, with movement and beautiful rim light. The subject is even falling backwards. I’m pretty sure this wasn’t easy to capture with proper exposure, and I love that!

Precious Moments by Mina Mimbu
I gasped audibly when I saw this image. There’s so much about it I love, technically speaking: composition, exposure, the right amount of detail in the shadows and highlights. And as for emotion, I love the magical feel and story. Congratulations!
