    These are only two of my attempts of silouettes. I have some of my horse that turned out dark like they're supposed to, but these turned out lighter for some reason. Maybe the light changed that fast? I used the same setting for all the pics. AE lock. I locked the exposure on the light part of the sky...Any tips would be appreciated on exposure and/or composition. I also threw one in of my cats for any critique! Thanks so much!

    P.S-Not to keep jabbering on, but I forgot to say that I didn't put the ones of my horse up that turned out more "silouetty", because her position wasn't right and there were other things wrong, so I didn't put those up.

    Sorry but I'm afraid you missed the silhouette effect.

    With the low sun there doesn't seem to be enough contrast between your background and the front of your backlit subject to get a silhouette effect. Although #2 doesn't appear to be "backlit." Perhaps you are getting some front fill from reflected ice/snow, too?

    Composition isn't very interesting in any of the 3.
