Challenge: Silhouettes VIII (Standard Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark III
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Date: Apr 8, 2017
Aperture: 32.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/6
Date Uploaded: Apr 9, 2017


The silhouette was not darkened. The back end of the boat was slightly lightened to reveal some detail. The rest of the boat had enough reflected light on it to show detail. The man's clothing did not reflect light, so he was the darkest part of the scene.

This one confuses me. I like the shot and how the right side completely disappears. What confuses me is that the boat engine isn't silhouetted, there's a lot of detail still there, but the person is. I don't know if that's natural, or if you darkened the person and the boat didn't get the same treatment, but it just isn't looking right on my screen. (sorry)

I was way too harsh on this during my first pass through and the second ratings pass. On reflection, this is a terrific image and certainly one of two top images in this challenge. Well done. Changed from a 8 to 10.,

this silhouette reminds me of Darth Vader somehow... but setting this aside it is a very fine picture with lovely movement in the water. I also like the gradient from the left to the light right
