love this image. very original and well executed. wonder if it is a real person, a real tree, or a real statue? regardless of that it is, it is marvelous.

It's a nice background, but the foreground is completely dard and in silhouette - against the guidelines of the challenge.

Unusual pose but then what is usual for a mermaid?

Too much of a silhouette to meet the challenge IMO

the subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting...

Neat image, but it really lost the detail - at least from what I can see. Maybe with less "brights" and a little subject and foreground dodging it would appeal more. Just my opinion. Others may disagree. Good luck.

Lovely image, but don;t think it will do well in the challenge as it is a silhouette, which was specifically against the rules. Best of luck anyway.

Doesn't meet challenge. foreground is silhouette only (at least on my monitor). That being said it's a nice abstract image. Focus is quite good. Comp is good too.

This shot looks good except for one thing, I would have croppped out the mast at the right. It just does not look right and also balance the shot from left to right. 7

did not follow the rules, subject can not be a silhouette.

i like it but its kinda more like a silhouette?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful photograph, but your subject is silhouetted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Silhouette. Horizon is skewed just enough to be noticeable.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2004 10:43:09 PM
Beautiful silouette, but that was one of the key things not to do in the challenge.
Still rank it as a 5 for the shot!

Nice image. Subject looks silouetted, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome use of backlighting, but it doesn't fit the description of this challenge in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2004 02:25:34 PM
Maybe it's my monitor, but wasn't the idea to NOT make a Sillhouette?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2004 02:50:16 AM
Good! But your main subject is a silohuete.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the image but had to knock off a point because the rules state "the subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting."

the subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting.

unfortunately the light created a silhouette would have been nice to see the features on the mermaid

Here's the catch: the subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting.
