Here at Light Stalking, we've been celebrating a very special milestone. Last week we had our 400th Weekend Photography Challenge. Our wonderful community came to the party, helped by Community Member Tersha choosing such a wonderfully creative topic for the challenge in Silhouettes.
There were so many wonderful photos posted to the forum, so please definitely go and have a scroll through the challenge.

We asked our very own Federico Alegria to pick his favorite images from the challenge for you to enjoy. As Federico says:
“Silhouette is an amazing topic for Light Stalking's 400th Challenge. Capturing a beautiful silhouette is a great photography technique to master to push your creativity and imagination. A great silhouette not only requires you to understand light, ensuring the light is completely behind your subject with zero light falling on their frontside but also, your composition needs to be engaging so you capture an interesting photograph and story. Silhouette is a diverse technique that can be used in every genre, from street photography to landscape – what a brilliant Challenge topic for our 400th edition.”
We want to give a special shout-out to all those members that made amazing contributions to this particular challenge so here are 28 brilliant and creative silhouettes from our community for you to enjoy.
