This street lamp and shadow were photographed in Rome, but I had seen something similar done before in a competition with the set subject of shadows. The author of the shot I saw had used a lamp on the side of a building like this one and then used Photoshop to paint in the light bulb to make it appear turned on. However I was very lucky with the above capture. This is as I found it, ornate shadow cast across the smooth render of an old Italian building in late afternoon with the light switched on. I couldn’t believe my luck!
