Photo Fun ~ Day 11

Challenge of the Day: Silhouette.

I LOVE this picture. If I analyze it in terms of light, color and gesture, I think it’s a winner. 1) it has the light, that beautiful little rim light/highlight on the hat and nose and rembrandt cheek. If I told you I had planned it, I’d be lying. It was a happy accident. 2) Silhouettes are tricky to get any nice color, unless you use the sky/sunset. I dumped the exposure on this one to get a really nice blue and still pickup some of the lilac purple. 3) As for gesture, it’s simply joyful toddlers holding up lilacs. But to me it communicates the joy of summer from a kids perspective. 🙂
