Google+ September Photography Competition

Google+

Thanks to everyone who entered the August competition with the theme Sunrise/Sunset! We'll be announcing the winners over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned.

Now, moving onto September's theme.... 

The Theme

The September Google+ Competition theme is 'Silhouettes'. Silhouettes can be used to create dramatic images, both in colour and black and white. Sometimes we even take them accidentally when capturing subjects against backlighting, but more interesting ones can include the form of a small animal or another subject. Try combining them with a strong sky or shadows to give them even greater impact, or maybe capturing a subject that leaves the result mysterious and open to interpretation.
