Silhouette and Shadows

A silhouette is a representation of dark through light. An outline of a landscape, object or person. Where the main focus is on the darkness of the bright image within the same photograph. Where the subject, significant element or supporting feature is the dark premise in the image.

For the Shadows aspect, if the point-of-view is effected by the shadows, then its suitable for this group. So the image would look differently if there were less shadows or seen from another point-of-view. All images have shadows; though, these shadows add a new perspective which add to the image. Like in old films where the man or woman's face is half lit, and half in the shadow, the director is sharing with the audience just by how the character is illuminated, that we are only seeing one perspective of the overall view. That is what I am looking for in this group. That added dimension.

Wallpaper Description:

This weekend the first partnership between private (Tesla) and government (NASA) entities made its debut. Yesterday (05.30.20) the launch of Space X Dragon (designed by Tesla - supported by NASA) flew into space successfully. Today (05.31.20) the Dragon docked with the ISS to transfer 2 astronauts from Earth onto the space station for scientific research for the next 3 months.

This is an artistic designed (photoshop) image of our desired perspective of the edge of our galaxy the Milky Way from earth by Arnold (aka The ChromeThemer).

The Space X Dragon returned to earth August 2, 2020, not as a landing like during the shuttle period, nope, a splash down into the Atlantic ocean like was done in the 1970's. So they were traveling @ 17,500 mph (28,000 kph) in space, then during reentry into the atmosphere to 350 mph (560 kph), then finally to 15 mph (24 kph) at splashdown. The top G forces were four to five times the force of Earth's gravity. That's one intense ride. Plus all this took place on live television via https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html#public .
