Thanks everyone for entering our Shadow Hunters competition. There are some great pictures here. It’s easy to see that quite a few of you shot something especially for the theme, which is perfect as competitions aren’t just about coming away with the prize, they are a chance to shoot to a brief and they lend an element of purpose to our photography. I love the different interpretations of the theme in the entries here, and enjoyed the funny ones too. Shadows are very close to my heart and I’m constantly on the lookout for interesting ones. To me they are almost the opposite of the actual object that made the shadow – like the ghost of something. Most people ignore them, or don’t even notice they are there, so when we highlight them it can take the viewer by surprise. And that is almost always a good thing.
