Some nice images so far. Guess I'd better get to work looking for something.

I went looking for some tips on photographing silhouettes and found the following sites that seem informative.

Hi,

I'm going to continue to look for silhouettes, but until I find something better, I thought I'd post this one. I actually took it in April, but it will have to do until I take something better/more current. It was a pretty sunset, and this one seemed to fit this month's theme the best of the series.

Edited: A better sunset tonight - this time I actually thought about the trees, instead of trying to ignore them. I've posted my new entry below.

This is NOT FOR VOTING!!!! This is an old image that I am just putting here for comments. DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS IMAGE, it does not meet the requirements for an entry.

Years ago, Pentax ME Super, M 50mm f1.7 lens film (remember that).

Just wanted opinions, the light in the windows is from thesetting sun behind.

Here's my latest entry - tonight's sunset was better than the other one.

Ira - I like the idea of the picture, but I think the scanner sort-of lets it down. I suspect that it's got better quality/sharpness when you see the photograph in person. I bet it has a much bigger impact than it shows here, the framing is very good and the sky is certainly dramatic.


Edited to remove sunset picture, replaced by a later picture.

Here's my entry for the time being. Had gone to the cemetery to try with some stones, but I just couldn't get the effect I wanted. Tried with the tree and this was what I got.

Ira, I really like your non-voting image. It reminds me of a photo I took a few years ago at the lighthouse in San Diego. I think it's more the peaceful feelings of the day, but yours is nice.

The window effect is cool.

Normally I try to take a new photo for our contests, but I don't think I am likely to find a more interesting silhouette in the next two weeks. This was taken at St. Petersburg Beach last month.
