silhouette and shadow

I took this photo several weeks ago and just got around to posting it.  It's probably hard to visualize unless you know the spot, but it's the Hub leaning up against a short stone wall overlooking the Hudson River, the George Washington Bridge and the New Jersey horizon in the distance.  I shot and processed this with my iPhone and liked the strong, stark contrast I got with this version--I think I used the format126 app.


And since it's Shadow Shot Sunday I have another shadow portrait for you today.  Yes, another one!  I hope you are not too sick of these, because I have so much fun taking and processing them :)

fence, me

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far!

Beautiful shots.

I don't have to know where I am to find that first shot beautiful. I love the bridge in the background. I especially like the second shot, though, and whatever kind of grate or fencing is making the shadows. Good job!

Love that first photo.

Did you post the second one before? It looks kinda familiar to me, but maybe I just imagine that it does.

Awesome! Love the super high-contrast (almost looks like it's been silk screened). That second image is amazing, too - great combination of warm and cool tones...

Love the shot of your shadow-nice lines and tones...plus I love when the shadow fits right about the feet like that. Nice job!

I always enjoy the silhouette patterns in your shadow shots! Extra detail is eliminated and we see only the strong essential design.
