A "Shadow" is an area, where direct light from a light source can not reach due to obstruction by an object. It occupies all of the space behind an opaque object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or reverse projection of the object blocking the light.

I love contrast, and would enjoy seeing how you would showcase your photo within shadows.
---------------
