NIce backlighting, but unfortunately everything that is backlit is a silhouette.

The buildings are a bit dark ... on a different monitor, this looked almost like a plain silhouette.

I really like this shot. Nice framing with the use of the arch, detail in the buildings and their postioning is excellent.

I like this image. Unfortuantely, the harsh light creates more of a silouette rather than backlighting.

Has potential but a silhouette which was against the rules in this challenge so doubt it will do very well.

Everything is silhouetted. But it is a lovely shot.

Labas! Good pic, just a bit too dark to see the nice detail of the university. Sekmes!

overall too dark for my taste

Very beautiful and serene, but it doesn't meet the challenge (no silhouettes!).

Beautiful image!

nicely backlit without silhouette

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."

Awesome clouds; buildings are too dark though.

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