Experience with my shadow on the rocks of Mount Atlas in Marrakech, Morocco.
The photo was cropped, submitted to a slight vertical perspective correction, and a slight manipulation of vibrancy in shadows and highlights (Ps6).

Hi Jose.

I like this very much, its one of those you need grab the perspective and then realise the content. I like the texture and light across these rocks, the sheen is appeal.
One worthy of framing, tfs

stv ;o))

Ciao Jose, original portrait of your shadow on beautiful rocks, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bom dia Jose
interesting capture. splendid sharpness of your shadow with wise use of rocks for marvelous texture. nice sepia tones. good handling of day light and fine PP work.

Hello Jose, an excellent presentation; you really do look to be a part of the rock formation!
Love the textures and pattern of the rock.
You could hang this on the wall as a portrait!
Regards Jean.

What is the most striking here, is that it appears as though your shadow is painted on the rocks. Love the sharp contrasts and the textures in the rock. well done Jose.

Hello Jose

The added pp work really helped the effect of your shadow looking as if it is a permanent pattern in the rocks. Nice self portrait. Simple but very effective. Nice

Bom Dia Jose,

Your self-shadow on undulating rock surface is looking marvellous. An aethetic impression of the combination of greys. Such a lovely impressionist snapshot my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hi Jose...very nice shot. I like the creative way the shadows interact with the background rocks.
