Silhouettes and Shadows

On my recent break, I had challenged myself to get some slow shutter speed images ( I showed two of cyclists in a recent post), some Intentional Camera Movement images of trees (I shall post soon), some more ‘One’s (one image posted recently, more to come) and lastly silhouettes and shadows.

Yesterday’s One/134 had the lone figure as a silhouette against the light behind, but here are some people as very distinct silhouettes:

I like the way they are moving across the arch, rather than towards the light. Here’s another one, which is slightly less dynamic, I think, but more coherent as an image –  they tell different stories:

And here are shadows that caught my eye

I could have cloned the feet out, but that smacks of cheating, and I like the extra mix of shadows there…

What do you think?

  1. Definitely leave the feet in. Their shadows add to the overall feel.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I like the paradox of these images. Because their composition tells us you are there with your watchful gaze – and yet you are not there 🙂 Thumbs up here too for the feet.

  3. I like the feet too. And the silhouettes. Nice to challenge yourself. I must do that, everything I take is very samey.

  4. I like the last one, with the distinct shadow of the architectural feature, as well as the fleeting feet. 🙂

  5. The feet add an extra ingredient – movement. I prefer them in.

  6. I’m just smiling because I recognise the place. 🙂 🙂

  7. Excellent images of silhouettes. My favourite is stil the one the shadows on the ground.

  8. Lovely silhouettes but I too especially like the shadows-with feet. 🙂

  9. Yes to the feet! Says one who does it all the time… 😁

  10. Seems everyone agrees, I do too, the feet balance the composition.

  11. Or done a tighter crop at the top, but if it is just a matter of timing (sometimes the feet would not be there) cloning would not be a cheat.
