D-260 Shadows

I always work hard at avoiding shadows in my images - but guess what? Shadows add contrast to images, they add dimension and interest.
Today's Daily Shoot Challenge is: Hard shadows can emphasize texture and edges. Find a scene lit with hard shadows today and make a photo.

I didn't "Find" a scene I had to create one. Here's my entry:
Hard Shadows - little elephants

So true Sandra, we (photogs) try avoiding shadows in photos and this was an interesting assignment.

I like those cute little elephants and you did very well for TDS assignment.

sometimes the shadows make the picture...and these fall into that category (I think).

Oh awesome. Those shadows to help the picture!

As usual, I have to be contrariwise :) I love shadows and often make them the an integral part of my composition. But between you and Sasi (who both dislike shadows) you do an awfully good job with them.

Nice job on this! I really had a hard time with this one, and ended up just skipping it. Your shadows really make the photo!
