The title make no sense to me- but so what?
I love the image, Douglas.
Shadows can offer amazing opportunities sometimes (for those like you who see them .
Perhaps a top crop would eliminate some of the extraneous white and strengthen the image?

sometimes the destination makes the journey worthwhile, regardless of how you had to travel.
that is, I don't know what you did of how you got there, but this is an excellent image.
and I would not crop it.
regards, tom

Thanks guys. The care package for relatives in the Philippines, it is traditional that when my wife's family go back to the PI, they take two 80 pound boxes packed full of chocolates and other goodies for family members back home. I came into the living room in the late afternoon before the boxes were filled and saw this scene, I like the detail the sun painted the shadows of the plants against the side of the box, evn took a couple with the Rollei.
I gave up an Alaskan vacation so the wife could go and attend her niece's wedding, just hopin' none of them decide to wed next year.

Interesting processing Douglas, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it first either.

Very cool Douglas.
Is the texture from the box, or did you add it in processing?

Thanks Lazlo, no extreme processing on this one.

Thanks John, the texture was from the surface of the box itself.
