Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

You can see my shadow. The picture makes me feel happy, but it also shows sadness. It shows rocks on the side that make me feel like I am at the beach. And it shows emotion. I think it shows the mood that I had when I took the picture. I think it's very interesting to take a picture of a shadow of a person because it shows emotion ... sadness. I really like this picture. I like the way that my whole body came out and that the shadow looks very good. The colors are much like shadow colors like black and gray. Also, the red line is cutting through my shadow, and I think this is very interesting.

The shadow being cut by the red line is very interesting. Some people might think the shadow is interesting in many ways. Those rocks on the side also remind me of the beach.

I like your picture because it shows your shadow, and it's the figure of your body. Again, I like your picture. Good Job.
