Very nice clk230, Genl. Jackson is nicely silhouetted against the bright sky while the little bit of remaining light on the landscape provides some context. For me it's a pass.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

@Jetsplace: The first is a clear pass! The second has a bit too much detail in the subject's face. Cheers... Brian

Sony A77, Tamron 70-300mm

300mm, F5.6, 1/3200, ISO 100

Ended up being just a tad underexposed, looked pretty fantastic after I brought exposure up in post and brought out the sun behind it... here's a smaller, bandwidth conscious thumbnail of the result

@UncleLimpy: Nicely done (in-camera and PP). It's the in-camera version that is important to this assignment. That's a pass! Cheers... Brian

I did take these with the assignment in mind a few weeks ago but have been caught on the Leading Lines assignment!



Taken using A65, Minolta 50mm 1.7 with an ND1000 filter, 16/10s f/8 ISO100 50mm.



Beercan, 1/40s f/4 ISO400 160mm.

Your thoughts are welcome as always.

@Blue-Eyed Monkey: The first has too much detail in the subject and the subject is not easily recognized even with the detail (at least for me). In the second, the subject skyline is not in focus. Sorry, but I am asking you to please try again.

Cheers... Brian

P.S. You might check out the assignment merit gallery for inspiration.

Thanks for your comments Brian.

I have found the assignments are definitely improving my photography and I am going to be more jaundiced in my submissions from now on

I went out again last night and tried again. I have altered the colours slightly by upping the saturation in Lightroom just to bring out the silhouette more and deepen the sunset but otherwise is as taken.



Taken on A65 with Sony 18-135mm 3.5-6.3 lens. 1/20s f/9 ISO100 28mm

@Blue-Eyed Monkey: Much better, Glen. There is a bit of detail visible on the larger dome (and the artificial lights are a minor distraction), but the overall effect is good and deserving of a pass. The extra saturation in the background adds drama to the image without being too heavy handed.

While our eyes often perceive silhouettes at twilight and making this a natural time look for examples to photograph, you can also stop down the aperture and create a silhouette by effectively eliminating the detail in a subject with a bright background.

Cheers (and on to your next assignment)... Brian

Thanks for your comments - I've added a bit more PP, clipped the blacks and removed the artificial lights. I know this is cheating for the assignments but couldn't leave it alone
