    I sure do appreciate all the comments that people leave here! It helps inspire and motivate all of us newbie photographer wanna-bees!

    This shot was taken last summer of my son swinging at a park. I did enhance the contrast a little to darken the foreground.

    This was taken w/ Canon Digitel Rebel

    It's a great silhouette but the image is way to big. Try to keep the images around 600 wide x 400 tall so that everyone can view it easily on their screens.

    Interesting idea, John. Usually in a light situation like this you would wish for a fill-in flash to light up the face. You decided for the silhouette, and therefore I think it was important to darken the foreground so that it would be all black.

    If this were my photo, I'd have "switched formats": from portrait style (upright) to landscape (horizontal) by cropping out large part of the sky and some from the bottom. Or I'd have left it square. But even though the sky is a wonderful, cloudless blue, I'd have given up on that in this photo. But that is just me.

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    I'm still new to dealing with digital pics and tried to resize but couldn't quite figure it out. A little more work and I'll get it though.

    Lafoto, I'll have to play around with cropping and try a landscape shot.
