Shadow Man or Shady man ??

Shadow man ? OR silhouetted man ? Or shade of a

man ?

The other day when I was enjoying my beverage in the

restaurant, , I noticed an image on the wall and lost

no opportunity to have a shot.

As a beginner I used to get confused about the

various terms being used. What I understand my

limited knowledge as follows.

Shadow: Used to describe specific object or people blocking the Sunlight.

Shade: Used to describe the general areas blocked by Sunlight. Ex- Shade from tree, Shade from building etc.

Size of Both shadow & shade depends on the intensity and direction of the Sunlight.

Silhouette: It is the specific shape/outline of an object /person cast by light source.

I presume the above image is that of a silhouette of

the man.

Correct me if I am wrong.May be some

professional photographers there can help me.
