The theme of this week’s photo challenge is silhouette. A silhouette is made by shooting towards the light, in this case the setting sun. I don’t take silhouettes often because it is hard to achieve the right level of balance between dark and light. This picture, however, has a lot going on. The car windows, trim on the houses and outline of the trees balances the detail and color of the clouds above the electric wires nicely. I may have to start working on silhouettes.
Weekly Photo Challenge is a WordPress-organized series. Each week, there is a different photographic theme. This week’s theme is near and far. I’ll tag each post with “postaday” and “weekly photo challenge: [insert theme].”
