A silhouette is a person, object, or scenery in solid color. It can be just that, or it can be part of a larger entity: a photo with standard colors and shapes.
Silhouettes can, when taken correctly, invoke an emotional response that we can't always explain rationally. They're popular in many forms of art, including illustrations, painting, photography, and theatre.
It's been a few years since we had a silhouettes photo contest (that was on Pxleyes!), so it's time to have another one to see the new skills you have acquired over the years.
Silhouettes are usually black, portrayed on a light background. However, that is not a requirement for this contest. You can use silhouettes and backgrounds of any color or shape. Your photo must contain 1 or more silhouettes.
To get some inspiration, have a look at this contest on Pxleyes from 4 years ago. It was won by user 'still26'.
