Anyway, thanks for all the votes and the great pictures Ellie, Tim_g and the rest.. I will have a short think and come up with a new subject for our next contest.

Meanwhile a short explanation is in order maybe:

Take a sheet of watercolour paper and trap it hanging off the edge of the desk with a sheet of glass. Keep the glass in place by placing a halogen desk lamp on top of it. Now anything you place on the glass casts a shadow down the paper. A large paperclip, for example? Bend the watercolour paper to get a nice curvy shadow. Take several shots, pick the two best and combine them as 2 layers in photoshop using "darken". Fiddle around for an hour or so until it looks right.

Finally think up a pretentious title

Just like that - gone in a flash! Now in use.
