Caturday Art: Summer Silhouette

This photo turned out better than we expected. I was at the bedroom window getting some much-needed air and mum decided to take some snaps of me on her iPhone. She used the Retrica app, which has some great vintage effects, as you can see.

We love the partial silhouette of this photo which came about because I was standing against a very bright window, which is not the ideal for taking photos, but for this effect it worked really well.

Check out Purrs Full of Love for the Sepia conversion of this photo.

So right: silhouetted against the light from the window really works and works well! Gives a mystical look to Athena and to the whole image ...

TW likes taking photos like that even thought she knows better than to shoot into the light. Very artsy though.
