Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.
Says Cheri Lucas Rowlands. I thought of this image I took recently on the beach at Exmouth, and I quite like it.

I really like this one! Congratulations…. Perfect for this theme…
I really love silhouette images. It’s a wonder to me that I don’t often take it. I guess because good timing is much required. I just ran on the beach this morning. Me no like it. 🙂
Lovely Gilly girl. The slope left to right makes this composition, spectacular.
Like the storyline here – that each jogger has an identity of shape, all in different strides… lovely shot Gilly.
This is excellent. Looks like a postcard or and advertisement for physical fitness. Might be worth something. 😀
Nice take on this week’s theme: Silhouette. Reminds me of that progression from ape to man the evolutionists are always bandying about. 🙂

Great picture! Beautiful example of a silhouette.
I really enjoyed this and thought about each individual including the man looking back at his followers !
Perfect silhouette entry for the challenge, Gilly. I like it, too. A lot!
Great composition Gilly and perfect silhouettes for the challenge. I love the way you can see each person in movement and the effort it takes to run on sand or shingle!
nice, healthy line of sporty people, I could follow them in a chariot pulled by a horse…
You definitely nailed it Gilly. Excellent shot and interpretation. 😀
This is an amazing shot – but also so fun!

The silhouettes really bring out each person’s body shape and the way they hold themselves.
