*** CRITIQUE CLUB COMMENT ***

You've already heard about the "flaws" of this image in terms of the challenge; it does not meet the terms of the challenge, inasmuch as even though the face is hidden in this picture it is still an actual face. The challenge was about "finding" faces in things that aren't really faces; tree trunks, reflections, cloud formations, the possibilities were endless.

You've also heard that the white spaces here, and the tiny margins right and left, are very offputting, and I agree.

Speaking of it as an image, it's in many ways quite spectacular. It's a brooding, strong photograph. It's not 100% to my taste, but it seems to me you've probably accomplished what you set out to do. Just out of a sense of exeprimentation, you might try taking this image and reducing the contrast/oversaturation a little bit in the sky, maybe even soften it up a bit, and see how that alters the mood of the thing. There are many, many ways you could handle the post-processing on this image.

I've been looking at this for about ten minutes now. I've come to the conclusion that your 'hidden face' is that of the person in the photo. I don't necessarily like this idea, nor do I think it represents what they meant by 'hidden faces'. With that said I think the colors alone on this photo are awesome, not to mention the texture of the sky. I really do like the silhouette (spelling?). I think over all it's an amazing shot, may even go in my favorites. But for the sake of the challenge I didn't think it was a winner.

Not sure that this quite meets the challenge. Nice sunset and silhouette effect though.

This would have looked so muck better without the heavy top and bottom borders.

I see faces in the clouds. I might have left the person out of the photo.

yikes...i do hope you got a good capture of this sunset--it looks like it was beautiful. as for your image, it looks like you need to work a bit more on post-processing... as for the challenge, this is barely reaching my interpretation of the challenge description. good luck!
