Photo challenge # 26 Silhouette

R U L E S:- The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. You can change your image as many times as you like before the deadline.

- The host chooses a winner *AND* runner-up after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is *not* eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, tells everyone when the photo's must be posted by (give some reasonable amount of time like a week), runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. Winner/Host, please post a reasonable topic that someone who's not a pro photographer can be a part of. Remember it's not just cool shots, but the story that can be told for some.

- If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 48 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

- Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo.

- All levels welcome. If you don't have the best lens or just a plain old pocket camera but your shot tells a wonderful story then there's no reason you can't win! This is about overall photo's and their story, not just about expensive equipment.

- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, ask for it...after all we are here to learn too and practice.

- Provide any additional information concerning your entry you want. Explaining how the shot might relate to the topic could help too.

- Winner/Host, please copy and paste these rules into the topic and thread that you post because some might start doing contests later and miss the first one.


Silhouette backlit exposure. I saw this kind of pictures in photo challenge # 24 This are easy to make, so maybe we'll see more pictures this time.

Good luck.

None of those are really a Silhouette. But I'd pick the third one, and darken the forground to make it a proper silhouette.

The post I was responding too appears to have been deleted. I should have quoted it, but I guess it worked out for them that I didn't.

posted these before, but for now don't have too many silhouettes:

this is official submission:


not the main subject, but silhouette is in the picture


and here is my very first lame attempt of making an HDR - from the shot above - the source exposures were bracketed only at 1/3 so no dramatic HDR effect, but I like the softness:

hmmm...too bad it's too late for the leaves, would be cool to find one of those trees with bright red leaves (burning bush maybe?..), there've been a few cool sunsets a few weeks ago, now its shitey cloudy

And this was an inadvertant silhouette taken by my fiance.

Looks like no more pictures coming up. Thanks everyone for posting. The WINNER IS........FiReBReTHa's Doberman. Runner-up Maui by DefyInertia. I realy like the Smokey Mtns picture, it was my favoryt picture but it can't be judged according to rules. Samal, your picture is realy good example of silhouette.
