Contre-jour

By KingBee
Shot Wednesday in Vienna's Natural History Museum, where, on a comfort break from the endless tramping around (you cannot begin to imagine the scale of the place), I spied this fellow on his phone, back-lit by the natural light streaming in the frosted glass window. I decided not to make him a true silhouette, in order to leave some texture in the body to create an impression of depth.

When I commented and voted for this earlier on today, I was viewing it on my phone while at work. Looking at it now on my P.C I can really appreciate the superb control over exposure, as well as seeing the finer details. Great shot, have a gong.Smile

Very clever image, Bob; when is a triptych not a triptych? I'd agree also it was a good decision not to make the figure a complete silhouette. Cheers, Allan
