    This week’s 52 Week Project theme is Silhouette!

    It’s important to pick the right subject and background when taking silhouette photos. Your subject must have a clear and recognizable outline, while your background must be bright. Your goal is to create contrast between your subject and its background.

    Hello. Here are my photo’s. I took these when the sun was positioned just to the left of me. I”m not good at identifying birds but it could have been some sort of crow.

    Sorry, no silhouette photos yet from Michigan – this whole week has been cloudy, snowy and downright gloomy 🙁

    Hi everyone, these are my silhouette shots after editing, I don’t feel a geek working with editing software. I will appreciate your feedback.

        @Robbie Honestly, I don’t see anything I’d improve in those photos. They all look good in terms of composition. You experimented with different subjects. The lighting is great. No constructive criticism from me this week, which means you’ve done a wonderful job!
