We stopped for a hotdog not long after we arrived at the zoo (the kiosks have been closed over winter – we were having withdrawal symptons). I finished mine rather quickly and Mike was still enjoying his. The sun was directly behind the bench we were sitting on, Mike had his hotdog in one hand and the monopod with his camera/300mm in the other and I just loved the way that the shadow looked. I couldn\’t be bothered with a lens change so zoomed backwards with my feet until enough of his shadow was in frame at 100mm. Bit miffed that I\’ve clipped the side of the shadow but I still think it works.

Done my usual PP – levels, curves, sats and sharpen.
