Not caring about the challenge this is from. Great creative photo. Wondering about b&w on this one.

Great colors, nice composition, and exposure. But unfortunately - challenge details frowned on sihlouettes.

This looks too much like a silhouette for me. It's a very nice shot, but there is no detail on the subject other than the outline of the statue.

Its a nice picture, but it is a silhouette..

Lost almost all of the detail - makes it very silhouettish (if that's a word and spelled correctly). Possibly needs fill flash? Others may disagree. Good luck with the challenge.

Doesn't meet challenge. Foreground is silhouette only (at least on my monitor).

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

I am sorry, but I see a silhouette which should have been avoided for this challenge. Not enough detail shows on the statue.

This is more of a silhouette but a nice one!

This photo is a bit too bland for my taste. Then again, you can't control the sky. Good idea.
