  #182 Contre Jour / Backlighting
Entry 12 of 22
   
 
Monday Morning       ©2017 alis nocturnis
Apple iphone 6s       11th place, 76 points
1/10989s, f2.2, ISO 25, 46mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped to remove some foreground, small changes to colour values to lighten the result.       Extra Info: Finding natural backlight in the dark dank days of February gave two challenges for the price of one! I took contre-jour to mean that the light source (in this case the sun) should be somewhere roughly in the direction in which the camera is pointing.

    Pastoral image, nicely illuminated. I too believe that the sun should be somewhat behind the subject. In my favs.

    From the thumbnail I thought this might be the winner, but on viewing it in full glory I was somewhat disappointed. The image seems a little fuzzy and somewhat OOF, and the tones are rather flat and uninspiring.Composition of itself is spot on, nice leading lines, and you used the rule of thirds quite well.

    A lovely softly romanic landscape.

    At first i thought this too simple - guess I expect more drama from contre jour lighting - but I find that the simplicity and subtle tonal gradation grows on me. Very nice.

    Nicely composed. The image transmits the dank atmosphere perfectly and I can feel the damp! I hope the sun finally appeared to warm up the day.
