COMPELLING SILHOUETTES

Here's another one based on a very strong notan pattern.  Backlighting will do that. It can be such an enticing way to go, when everything conspires to show off the effect.  Backlighting will create compelling silhouette shape patterns.  From there, you can design the shapes as you like.  Moving things around to emphasize the effect is 80% of the fun.  Once you have the design resolved you can sample from the way things look in the light and shade to create all the drama you want.
