My aim was to capture a silhouette against a sunset. Please see SBS for my post processing explanation.

Any tips for improvement will be greatly appreciated. (105 days ago)

Hi,

Here are my few thoughts on your image and post processing.

You mention that you wanted to achieve a silhouette against a nice sunset and you succeeded.

The time for silhouettes is morning light or setting sun light. You did a good job of cloning out the shadows that your hood created, however, it gave a vignette type of look which wasn’t all that bad but it wasn’t what you were gunning for.

The clone job nicely done, although you have some still showing through. If you try varying opacity layers as you clone you can further eliminate that without the telltale signs of cloning showing through.

Horizon is now straight. Details in shadows are more easily recovered when an image is underexposed, so when in doubt shoot underexposed rather than over. RAW or not RAW.

I like your image because the silhouette gives emotion or rather mood…you are a romantic at heart. Overall the image is a bit busy, following the KISS principle seems to work better for silhouettes…a strong dark focal point…uncluttered. My two cents worth.

Wow, literal and metaphorical is right, alright. Good catch and I wonder what your neighbours thought of you roaming through this graveyard as the sun was going down? I like how the graveyard is awash in darkness yet the stones stand out clearly. I do think that the sky steals the thunder from the shot somewhat but the marriage of title and photo go together like a hug and a squeeze!

Nice shot of rooftops with chimneys showing their presence somewhat. The sky washes out the image.
