Shadows are a brilliant way to create striking photographs. They're free, they're everywhere, and there's no limit to what you can do with them.

Take a look at these pictures compiled by Bored Panda to see what we mean. Each of them have been transformed by the use of a simple shadow. Some of the pictures feature models adorned with the silhouettes of leaves, plants and flowers, while others see bodies intersected by dark and sometimes seemingly body-hugging lines or pockmarked by light shining through hats and other garments. They're simple, they're clever, and they're beautiful, without a shadow of a doubt.

Any one else getting annoyed the shadow effect isn't aligned perfectly?

Looks like what happens when a spider bite poisons your arm. The infection slowly travels....

I feel like I'm looking at her through those small striped sunglasses from the 60's!
