Silhouettes against colorful windows in a Chicago airport.... by Shirley Ward, FPSA, EPSA

December 2019 - Silhouettes against colorful windows in a Chicago airport....

About the Image(s)

Whilst being transported (via a wheelchair) from one gate to our departing gate for the flight to San Juan Puerto Rico last month with my family, I took this amazing image....had the attendant stop several times so that I could get photos...

Also, this image received 1st place in our local camera club competitions last week... I did nothing to it except remove a couple of distracting highlights....The colors were amazing

I first thought that the lady was trying to shoot someone with a catapult, then I spotted the little camera. The scene is very active and the colors are great. Well spotted and recorded.   Posted: 12/01/2019 05:18:26

The colors and reflections in this are beautiful. By putting the people in shadows makes the colors stand out even more. Very nice image, and sounds like others thought so too!   Posted: 12/10/2019 13:16:21

I had no idea this image would turn out as it did, when I asked the gal pushing me in a wheelchair, to stop so I could take the photos...I only saw the brightly colors windows, etc, and didn't really see the people at all, until I after I took it..Actually, the gal with the camera was my roommate on the cruise...I didn't realize it was her until she pointed it out to me after the judging.   Posted: 12/10/2019 18:06:37

So natural shot through airport life Shirley. Pastel colors, silhouettes and front light effects are all impressive.   Posted: 12/15/2019 00:50:10

Amazing shot. The silhouette of the people against the multi colors and shapes of the background make this photo quite dynamic. Well Done.   Posted: 12/22/2019 13:55:27
