Silhouette of Guinness, Dublin

Silhouettes often make a useful tool in photography, strong lines breaking the horizon or the shape of a majestic tree outlined against the colour of an evening sky.

Silhouettes serve to show off the sky, the photographer exposing for the highlights rather than the shadows to allow the shapes of the subject to come into its own.

Seen here is the famous Saint James's Gate complex belonging to Guinness in Dublin.

I have written about silhouettes before, mostly from blue hour in landscapes, see here for instance; the silhouette is an important tool for any photographer, even in landscapes.
