One comment was "I see a green light. Therefore this isn't a silhouette."

????????

Anyways, this is a shot I think I enjoyed more than the voters.


LOL........Don't you just LOVE those types of comments??? Kinda has you sitting there, mouth open, squinted eyes, scratching somewhere, thinking....."Am I from another planet or are they?" ;)

Continuing an upward swing. NO new comments but that's ok. I could stop now and be satisfied.

Wondering what the hell I'm going to hear for my Still Life with Motion entry. ha ha

This started out as my lowest scoring photo ever at 4.7. I considered requesting a self DQ but resisted temptation! The worst thing is I have 2 totally different outtakes I could have entered and I bet they would have done better. As usual I chose the wrong one.

Gone up a bit.
One, very positive comment recieved so far...

Actually did another edit of my pic last night and it came out MUCH better, though it would not have complied with the Basic rules!

Hey ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' KarenNfld we should consider making a team because I do the same thing all the time. In my side challenge 30 Day Black & White I have a Silhouette that I was going to enter and went with another one I sure wish I had a sounding board for some of the challenges. People who have looked at it have really liked it. DOH!!!

LOL - who would have guessed the "Silhouette" would be controversial? <Well, other than those of us who entered/voted in the Backlit challenge, lol>

I saw several shots (using light for the outlines in most cases) that made me think - "This is an excellent silhouette, but I bet more than half the voters will mark it down because they think it isn't one."

And then there were a few who used a bit too much light and (to me at least) stepped over the line, in some cases making it not even what I would consider back lit.

What a weird challenge. Middle of the road score, more comments than usual, several dnmc type comments, and 2 favorites. I don't know what to think :p

I've looked and voted on over half and I think what the problem is, is the composition. It's as if people just tried so hard to get a silhouette that they didn't think artfully or compositionally. I'm also seeing some that have a "forced" silhouette by using levels or curves to really black out the subject, and it's looking fake. I did stumble across a couple of really good ones though.

Ok, off to vote some more.

First night was scary voting for most i think... some very low votes were given out... when i went to bed had about 15-20 votes and was hovering around the 5.2 mark. Now its up to almost 6.2...

Ty to those that left comments and I'm glad you liked my shot or gave me advice to improve :)

On a side note ... this is the first photo of mine someone has added to favorites which definitely made my day :D
