Silhouettes are a powerful tool to eliminate unnecessary objects and highlight a subject’s shape and form. It also allows a viewer to use their imagination, forming their own conclusions on the scene presented.

It’s a thoughtful composition, with the sun behind the goalkeeper, exactly where the kicker wants to place the ball.
