The 15th Challenge is all about the silhouette. We can all do them, we've probably all done them. I don't just want any silhouette, I want one with imagination, one that pushes the boundaries, so start planning your shoot and post those shadows.

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the judge will decide if it works.
4. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & Lensbaby used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 9pm EST (eastern) Monday January 26, 2009
*Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

Cheers and

Good Luck!

Congratulations to all for your worthy entries.

I must declare Peterb533 and 'Mother and child' the WINNER. It was the orange back lighting with fall off that did it for me. At a glance it all seems so real, warm and loving.

WELL DONE

Other favorites were - all the rest. Jad I really like your sweet spot and the way the sun is peeping. Rachel - great lighting. Scott, I love the trouble you have gone to shooting thru the paper, it give a great textural feel to the image. Joby, so sharp around the ears and a brown silhouette, very good. Rick, What is that object - I love the riotous colour in the background - very effective.

Thanks to all that participated, not the best number but great entries and a challenge to judge.


Peter, up to you to choose the next topic and winner. Good Luck to all.

Cheers,

steve
