Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

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.  Read more from Cheri Lucas Rowlands, and view her incredible shot.

While capturing the sunset, this shot picked up silhouettes of the trees.
