Everything is about the point of view. Here are three photos of the same object taken just a few seconds apart. I moved only a few feet between those shots.
MacKenzie King’s silhouette over Parliament Hill
A B/W contrejour photo. The sun was completly hidden behind the statue and I was able to catch that clear silhouette. I was surprise of the result since I am having difficulties with those contrejour photos.
MacKenzie King’s head
This picture was taken at the end of the afternoon, a few seconds after the previous one. The sun was quite low and stricking the statue almost at a perpendicular angle giving this yellowish finish to the bronze statue.
