Shadows and reflections are two of my biggest photographic inspirations.

Be it a silhouetted man, shadows from a fence or just dark and mysterious areas of a photograph- shadows fascinate me!
Reflections, too- they can be so clear that they look like reality, or just a hint of surreal light echoed off an object- what's surreal is that the reflected substance is not really matter, just a visual trick...

Anyway! I've spent the past few days browsing, and these are deviations I truly love, so I hope you like this news feature!

I'll start it off with a selection of my own photographs, created, inspired and photographed because of either shadows or reflections:

Rider Reading by PoisonGirl-sts A Confusing Place by PoisonGirl-sts New Territory by PoisonGirl-sts Joe by PoisonGirl-sts To Be Beside The Seaside by PoisonGirl-sts
Losing Hope by PoisonGirl-sts Blind Play by PoisonGirl-sts New Moon by PoisonGirl-sts Zebra Blinds by PoisonGirl-sts Floating by PoisonGirl-sts
Chill Time by PoisonGirl-sts Haunting Memories by PoisonGirl-sts Spotty Wellies by PoisonGirl-sts Get Closer by PoisonGirl-sts Come Clarity by PoisonGirl-sts Bus Shadows by PoisonGirl-sts

Lying with Shadows by PoisonGirl-sts Stripes and Scowls by PoisonGirl-sts Reflecture by PoisonGirl-sts

Another big inspiration I've had recently is the shadows created by Venetian blinds! (I've actually started a photographic series and project using blinds!) so here's a special selection of venetian blind shadows:

The Zebra Man by Murphysk8 :thumb102926373: In the cold , cold night by plasticpearls
Shadows, black and white by Amystyka Light in the Shadows by Flickerings0ul :thumb51870486:
stark by sixthfiddler :thumb79434694: blinds by ilovealex

Some of these deviations have as little as one favourite (being just mine for this collection!) and others have thousands. Either way- these incredible pieces all deserve more attention! I hope this brings them some :)

Thanks a lot for looking! :D

All the work included is being commented a link to this news- thus almost all of the deviants included will probably check this feature out---
please favourite this news feature if you enjoyed it to ensure more people view these beautiful photographs!
