I Heart Faces - Soccer Silhouette


Here is my submission for Iheartfaces this week. The theme is Silhouettes. Quite frankly, I need a little help with my silhouettes. Particularly, I need a little help when a beach is not quite that handy. While taking these pictures here, I was shooting against a very wet playground at a school after soccer practice. The background was not so strikingly different in terms of light from my subject. Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw to the rescue. Increase blacks, play with exposure, increase clarity, play with contrast - and presto, a pretty cool looking silhouette. So, here is my entry:

You did a great job with the conditions you had. (I had to work without a setting sun at the beach too.)

I think you did a great save! :) I like how there is just a little light on the shirt for contrast.
