Very cool! Are you in MN? If so, the Robins will be very happy pretty soon. :)

RE: Silhouettes...

Yes, in MN.

RE: Silhouettes...

Hi Joan,

Wow! This is a beautiful silhouette photo! The crabapples have very sharp edge definition, along with shallow depth-of-field, so that the sunset background allows for interesting 'painter's backdrop' color variation, but not so clear that it distracts fromthe main show - the silhouette!

You also exposed this properly so that the crabapples are perfectly black and the sky pops with a rainbow of color. Well done!

Please consider submitting this picture to the Contributor's Gallery of a site I write and photograph for,
