the photo. How on Earth can the object's right side be entirely lit up and its left side not if the sun is coming from the SE?
To me it looks like BOTH the bird and the boat are moving in generally
similar directions -- which is to the right of the image frame, but also
toward the camera. ALTHOUGH, the boat does seem to be moving toward the right of the image more than the bird is -- and the bird seems to be moving
more toward the camera that the boat is...
...but I think they are generally
moving in similar directions. The bird's body and the boat's hull are oriented in similar directions to
relative to the sun.
Therefore, if the right side of the boats hull could be sunlit, then why mi the right side of the bird's body?
Yeah -- the boat is moving less towards the camera as the bird, but the boat's hull is also more sunlit than the bird. It seems the sun was probably
behind the photographer's right shoulder -- about SE, like you say, but probably more south -- i.e., SSE (assuming "straight in front of the
photographer" is North).
