#1 is a nice image, but I would have never guessed shadows are its primary subjects
#2 is more suitable in this respect (albeint it's a staple shadow shot:-), yet I think cropping even tighter would make the shadow more pronounced.

Good point. I was struck with the shadows of the fence, but I can see that it is not the primary subject.
I tried a tighter crop just now, and perhaps I'll substitute another photo I took with this assignment in mind.... It may need a tighter crop as well, but here is my first take on it.
Thanks for your input!
