I really enjoyed this one because a) I learned how to take this type of picture in the first place, b) it got Jesse, Lily and me out on a lovely fall evening to take said pictures, and c) I learned how to properly spell "silhouette," which I am officially glad I don't have to spell every day. I'm discovering I like to pretend I'm an artsy photographer, and even though my pictures aren't anywhere close to the caliber of the other photographers, I fortunately don't care and am having fun anyway!
Jesse and I had a disagreement about which one I should submit. We have a very scientific way of how we determine who "gets" to be right and make the final decision (only on the small, insignificant matters): who got to choose last time? And yes, this is how we named the baby: I chose the dog's name, so that meant he got to name Lily. Because he chose this one, I get to choose next time :)
I learned some lessons on this challenge, the biggest being backdrop. The view was fine to the naked eye, but the tree line kind of turned out to be a bummer in the actual picture. Unfortunately, where we live, it's hard to find a hill where you can watch the sun setting without trees or random buildings in it. I like it anyway, but it's something to keep in mind and work on for the next time!
