kyricom: Theme says to "show both item and shadow" ( 5 years and 1608 days ago )
MnMCarta: You know... In reading the rules again I'm gonna have to back up and regroup... It states the item should show but also the shadow it makes shouldn't resemble what it is... Back to the drawing board I go ( 5 years and 1608 days ago )
rbsgrl: Only a few of these pics actually fit the theme. Most don't show both the item and the shadow and most resemble what the item is. Why do people vote on pictures that don't fit the theme? ( 5 years and 1607 days ago )
karaflazz: Well said...

Well I'm not sure if that shadow is weird enough for the contest, but I thought it looked like a string, not like a wire where it originated from. (5 years and 1609 days ago)
