I was more concerned about why you didn't put a smiley face after the original question.... because i saw no smiley, i believed you might just have been curious. but i had my suspicion.

I feel like i should have said it originally, but i didn't want to seem like an a** hole. But i was also curious how high the contrast is on your screens or how strong the back lighting is. I actually get some of the canon's color.

I'm gonna ask my question again about the silhouettes, does the silhouette have to be a black or near black to be considered for the contest? or is it more of what's behind the silhouette and just someone/something being between you and an object of light creating an area of high contrast?

Just to make it more technical

I don't know how you could pass such a landmark and not be wanting to celebrate it like it's 1999....
