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?

  1. I don’t think it scrapes in–I think it nails it. I love the lampost on the walk most, somehow; it’s like it’s getting ready to take over. A question: is the bright light at the center the fading sun? I can’t tell (I’m not a photographer) but it almost looks like a flash against glass. Either way–it is beautiful!

I would love to hear from you . . .
