Silhouettes have an ethereal appearance, there is some mystery around the subject and the background is more than a shadowy backdrop, it becomes a feature.
Other than minor editing, this image is close to the original. I love the look of this, especially the sky which is just beautiful, the almost painted pastel backdrop adds a beautiful softness to the city skyline.
There is only minor editing to highlight the glistening water, the sky is a beautiful reddish yellow, resembling the ripe insides of a blood orange.
When I saw the light through the mini crab in this small egret’s beak, that made this photo for me.
