Silhouettes Saturday – Silhouettes against sunrise

This is an old picture. I saw these silhouettes on the roof in front of my window one morning before sunrise.When can we see a silhouette? When an object or a person is between a light source and the viewer, resulting in the viewer only being able to see a dark outline of the object. I am sometimes puzzled when I see that there is confusion between shadows and silhouettes because in photography the shadow is totally different from a silhouette.

    • The shadow is a dark area produced by a body or object coming between a light source and a surface, while the silhouette is the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible in low light against a brighter background. (But I’m sure you knew that!) .
