This is quite a good combination of the photographic and graphical approach done with impeccable good taste. It looks like it can be a popular poster. Bump.

looks likes the subject was constructed.

Nice take on the image. Solid silouette and good contrast with the flower.

Nice idea, would have preferred a sharper edge to the silhouette.

Neat idea. The detail in the lily is amazing, but something isn't quite right with the siloutte, it seems too far away from the lily to be smelling it. I'm sure setting up and lighting this shot is quite difficult, good effort.

I love the creativity of this shot. The color and detail in the flower is marvelous and the silhouette adds interest.

Good shot. Excellent focus on the lily and contrasts well the siloutte.

Wow! What an unusual, incredible photo! It's amazing how you got perfect lighting on the flower and such a great silhouette of the face. I really like it alot!

This one is bothering me. The main subject is clearly not a Silhouette, and the outline on the opposite side of the image, almost looks like a cut-out. I've been pretty leanent on this Silhouette subject in my scoring, and I would have scored this mone much higher had the flower been a Silhouette with very little detail around the fringes of the pedals and leaf. <5>

I'm not usually a huge fan of flower pictures, mainly because I have a ton of them outside to look at...but you've hit my sweet spot with this one! I am a total Oriental Lily freak! I feel like I can smell it myself...I wish they would hurry up and bloom outside already! Beautiful light and texture, I really do feel like I can reach out and touch that gorgeous lily.

looks like a shadow to me...! slight loss of sharpness on face. some over exposure on lfower.

GREAT shot of the flower...but the silhouette part isn't as captivating. The flower looks absolutely gorgeous...tons of detail and clarity.

More detail in the background, perhaps exotic, like a lily would inhance this. 8
