could see this one was cool right from the thumbnail
its africa with a capital A
mood is terrific...and tones sufficient to support the silhouette and not be too contrasty
Excellent silhouette shot the different tonal levels are really cool too. Well done Radu. :)
Very nice photo- useful note is very much appreciated so others may learn how you exposed and metered this for this type of shot.- Thanks
One of my favourite shots on TN...

Absolutely wonderful silhouetted image. Thanks so much for the note on how you did it!
I was looking at your great photo a second time and slid the image on my monitor over just to cut out the sun but leaving three leaves. Just a thought. It seems to put all the attention on Mr. Giraffe rather than the sun grabbing your eye right away. I know it puts the giraffe right in the center but sometimes rules are meant to be broken. I love it however it is cropped. Just great.

This is beautiful, Radu. There is poetry, there is artistry, there is sensitivity, gentleness, and purity in this shot. The way you framed the sun to come through the hole in the palm fronds is brilliant (no pun intended). The color tone has such a soothing quality to it. I love this!
P.S. Your notes about your inspiration from Balinese Shadow Puppets were very interesting, and your technical hints very informative. TFS. : )

This is an image that is very much a pleasure to gaze at.
Not only for the superb technical aspects of it, but also for the soothing calm and wonderment that it inspires.
Thank you Radu, another great contribution to this site.

You are quoting a line from a song by the Troggs.....either you are into nostalgia, or you are of my generation...
Great mood shot in a perfect setting.
