  #182 Contre Jour / Backlighting
Entry 14 of 23
   
 
Make these moments matter... or just go shopping       ©2017 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       14th place, 61 points
1/200s, f4.5, ISO 1000, 54mm, Shutter Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: cloned out a figure on the right to isolate the interest (used a different photo taken a few seconds later)
increased black level slightly, converted to black and white
increased contrast slightly
      Extra Info: a lack of decent sunlight meant I had to try a night shot.
Shooting into this bright window created a backlighting effect on the passers by.
I couldn't get square on owing to traffic

    An interesting street scene. At first I thought it would be better to clone out the ladder, but the more I look at it, I like the incongruity, and the way it accents the slanting advertisement. The shopper is nicely positioned to draw the eye to the edge of the photo.

    one could also mistake the shopper for a nun?

    Quite a striking shot - not sure it would have been better square-on. At first I questioned whether the backlighted woman was prominent enough to qualify, but the words are backlighted, too, so I guess that's OK. (And though it's visible at all, why am I so sure that she's looking at her smart phone?)

    I don't think a square on shot would have been half as good. I like the way the converging horizontals help the woman 'leave' the frame.
