Friday My Town Shoot Out - Silhouettes

I have prepared this post so as to participate in Friday My Town Shoot Out! The theme this week is Silhouettes! I really enjoy participating in this! Click on the link to learn more about it.


My first silhouette shows dawn through my kitchen window. I am lobbying for a double word score on this one because I also nailed the Rule of Thirds with the window pane lines(!)




My second silhouette was just taken in a shady area on an overcast day. Where the first photo is supposed to look "homey," this one is supposed to look a bit sinister with the barbed wire.

  5. I also like the second shot - 'a life outside' - to me not sinister - guess that is a glass half emty half full question.

    1. The second one is almost abstract looking, I think.

  7. I like the second shot. I don't think it's sinister. It has an interesting design with the wire intertwined with the branches :)

    1. LOL! You're right. It was SUPPOSED to be sinister with the barbed wire. But, then those lacey tree branches got in there and softened everything up!

  8. Great shots. It seems the consensus is on the second shot, which is nice, but personally, I like the first shot best. Great job!

    1. I do that too! I think that it is good to get a bit of mileage out of something that you obviously put some time into.

      Thanks for looking at my photos!

  12. Oddly, there was something about the first shot that first caught my eye but the second one kept calling me back to it...it has a feel to it.
