It was a dark overcast morning. This was taken with the challenge in mind so it was underexposed to get a good silhouette. This was one of 3 Ospreys that were fishing in the impoundment and all 3 had caught their breakfast within 5 minutes of each other.

it looks like a drawing because it's a silhouette. Sheesh.


I know what is a silhouette, but it doesn't change what I've said.

Beautiful isolated silhouette - all that's needed to tell the story.

Wonderful capture, but it looks like a drawing - perhaps you exaggerated the contrast

This is too good not to bronze or a cut out or something. Excellent presentation and stunning capture.

This could be an icon for a special outdoor project - nice shot and great processing.

Nice capture, but feels like you just photoshopped the hell out of this thing to achieve a two-tone image.

Silhouette to the extreme. I know this was your intention but I wish there were some grays in the sky. Nice moment and composition.

One of two tens I gave.
Fabulous silhouette.


It looks like a paper cutout on a sheet of white paper.

At least no one (probably) will complain that it isn't a silhouette. It does look like vector art though. I wish there was more interest in color or texture or something.
