    Thank you @TibiTibi for taking time and share your feedback. This would help. Your point noted and will try to give my best.

    My intention in that photo was to capture the illusions/myth as well, the shadows of shadows and it ended up to appear as more space on ground. Highlighted in the bottom left of the attachment, shadow of the "shadow on the wall".

    I will keep bettering as the contest progresses. Will also upload different images than edits of same image. Actually the vintage one will enhance and show you the shadow of the shadows, so added those two edits

    Thank you all for your questions. I have updated the rules a bit.

    • Photos cannot be older than 4 weeks, after the contest has started
    • All photos have to be taken with a OnePlus device
    • We post each beginning of a new week with 4 extra posts. When a new week starts, older posts cannot be edited or deleted by their owners anymore.
    If there are more questions, or anything not clear, please tell us.

    It is not needed to post extra „hey, thx for clearing, now the rules are clear“ posts. You can express your excitement with a „like“. Only if you have other questions, post them here.

    How Do We Select Winners?

    The pre-selection team consists of: @Bouncer71, @cdnfarmer, @hennes, @otto2, @script, @TibiTibi, and @woSch. We check all pictures of the contest, discuss, which we think are the best, and collect them in a separate thread. Then this group of experts, plus OnePlus staff members, go in a second round through that collection and nominate the 4 or 5 best pictures of the current week. Out of this elite, the final weekly winning picture gets selected. It's really a long and careful process.

    Finally, the selected picture has to get checked! Therefore it's needed to contact the person that has posted the picture, ask him or her to send in the original uncompressed file, to get the EXIF data checked. Only after that final check, the winning picture can be announced in the forum. And again, it's never settle.

    One more hint 🤗 i'm still in birthday mood.
    Reflection is not a shadow. Also silhouette is not a shadow. Why?
    Shadows and reflections are the effects of light. Shadows are formed when objects block a source of light. ... Reflections are caused by light bouncing off objects.

    It is not a shadow of a shadow. Such light effect does not exists.
    What you see on the floor is a reflection. See my teaching video from the hint today.
    Reflection is not the current theme 🤫
