Set subject definition:

Contre-jour (French for “against daylight”) is a photographic technique in which the camera is pointing directly toward a source of light.

Contre-jour produces backlighting of the subject. The effect usually hides details, causes a stronger contrast between light and dark, creates silhouettes and emphasizes lines and shapes.

Ken Barnett - Very Busy working together Sim Chong - Happy Sim Chong - Moving Stephen Hilton - Donuts all round

The market was already busy and buzzed with energy. In order to reflect the theme “Repair, recover and renew”, each of us tried our best capturing the positive and optimism of the future and people moving forward.
