Congrats on breaking through the 7 ceiling. I'm really quite amazed you haven't already done it, you have so many good photographs that I always enjoy viewing. Congrats on the new PB too!

I gave this an 8. Very nice silhouette and unusual pose. Like that the hair was 'just' discernible. As mentioned by another, I wondered about the "four thingys" but resolved they were stirrups or some sort of 'equipment', and were minor. Upper right gradient softened would have made this even better in my opinion.

Your "Contre-jour" is absolutely perfect. I like this cropped a little tight on the left just behind the horse to remove the twigs (keep the one on the right though) as it doesn't add beauty to the already amazing photograph and a tad bit on top just to balance it. But come to think of it, it can be taken as framing technique too. :-)

I hope this will do well! Much luck!

Nitpicking: What is that 4 little thingy hanging on the trunk of the horse? Since this is advanced editing, I think it is better to remove that. IMO. Take it or leave it. ;-)

Nice silhouette. I think it was the silhouettes of the grass in the foreground in front of that red layer of mountain that pushed this over the top for me. 7

This is rich. Serene and intriguing. The colors are great and the silhouette very nice. The look back across the shoulder brings the imagination into play here. Very nic.

the amount of detail in the landscape sets this apart from most other silhouettes. High scorer for sure. I like the separation of the reins particularly.
