      Get out those cameras and lets see those silhouettes! What will you take your silhouette against? What will your subject be? ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’ll try to get a more recent shot this weekend. This was from July.

      I was quite happy with these from my swim last night at Bondi given the challenges of shooting and swimming, and only having my waterproof point-n-shoot.

      @dchester1001 you deserve to win the contest this weekend only for having the courage to shoot so close to these little creatures which I am horrified of, even in the sight of! Spooky indeed, but very very nice (as I look at them safely from my screen).

      @koala I like the “waiting for my tea” shot.

      @Karamen Love the bocci outlines.

      @dchester1001 The flying foxes have great forms to them!

      @HorZa Love the reflections, the silhouette and the colours, beautiful.

      @camerasinger That’s something we don’t get here, geese on mass. I’ll try and capture the flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos that we get in the early morning and at sunset.

      I got this monkey at the zoo the other day, I love that there’s still a little bit of detail to its external, but it’s 99% in silhouette.

      This was actually a scanned image that I wanted to save:
      Going to the Tower

      This was taken with a compact on the day I bought my first DSLR (and used it so much the battery ran out at the crucial moment)

      Sorry, this is my first post here and I don’t know how to use it yet. I just posted the above pic, but my comment (below) didn’t make it with the pic.

      I was passing by Lincoln Center in the car when I just happened to turn my head and saw a crowd of people standing around the fountain and thought Silhouette! I jumped out of the car, ran over, pulled out my pocket camera and snapped this in literally two seconds.

      @thepaparazzo – thanks! yes, basically it is wrapping an image in circle, but there’s some steps before and after that, of course.
      I worked by this guide for the GIMP

      love your photo, very good silhouette with awesome skies and sea behind her.
