Thank you for your comments on “Wheel on the Wall”, Paladin. I appreciate them very much, and yes, I have done several photographs involving shadows. I’ve always been fascinated by light and shadow.
Have you ever wished you could tell your childhood self a thing or two about growing up?
Would the knowledge you know now have saved you from learning things the hard way?

Distinguished Forum Members,
Here are my brief thoughts on this week's exhibit at http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery.html
Bob McCulloch - Rondout Reservoir Tree http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery/mcculloch.html
There is a strange green cast that diminishes the impact on my psyche. Perhaps a quick run through Photoshop or similar program would add to the interest. The tree is cut with a strange (to me) framing. It seems incomplete. I wonder where Rondout Reservoir is?
John Palcewski - Naked Cowboy http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery/palcewski.html
Interesting, well exposed photo of an exhibitionist who should be somewhat cold in that slightly less than naked (but legal) outfit...if the clothing of the bystanders is any indication of the ambient temperature. Excellent street photography.
Marilyn Dalrymple - Wheel on Wall http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery/dalrymple.html
Interesting composition, but the picture is rather small and difficult to evaluate or appreciate. I think I would have exposed for the highlights, but this is an interesting interpretation. Didn't you have several wonderful shadow images on the forum several years ago?
Sherie Taylor - Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery/sataylor.html
Pretty, but it seems somewhat underexposed. Like McCulloch's image, it probably could tolerate a quick run through Photoshop.
Christopher Strevens - The new construction http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery/strevens.html
That looks like a BIG capacitor and uninsulated wire. Please be careful so you don't get hurt.
Trevor Cunningham - billie http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery/cunningham.html
And a proud papa you should be. It does not appear that this condition will be lasting much longer. Maybe I need to check my monitor, as this picture also seems just a bit underexposed and perhaps slightly off-color (photographically-speaking only).
Thanks to all who contributed today to help make my day just a bit happier. Thanks also to Andy, Angelica and anyone else who helped put the forum together today.
