Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Sara Rosso over at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/ says that  ‘The proper definition of a silhouette is “the outline of a body viewed as circumscribing a mass.” In photography, often we achieve that effect by putting light behind the object whose silhouette we want to capture, effectively darkening out the features of the subject instead of highlighting them.’ 

I don’t know if this works but it’s the best I can come up with. 

It’s either a photo that’s gone wrong or it just scrapes in as a silhouette, what do you think?

Do you have a silhouette photo to share?
