Let My Shadows Go

In this day and age of High Dynamic Resolution Programs and Photoshop blending methods, it is easy to fall into the trap of wanting every speck of shadow detail to be seen. Sometimes the image is stronger without it. Maybe (just maybe) the shadow lessen the impact of the photo.............OK, I didn't have a second exposure to blend in but that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
