The real beauty and your picture, is the fact that it took only 30 tries to achieve this result. The only reason I can't rate higher, is that I feel that there are some photos that are actually perfect in this challenge. Good colors in the sunset, good focus on your subject.

Nice shot, great silhouette, but this isn't saying "beauty" to me. 5 for the quality of the image.

Any more tries and you would have lost your sun. Good work overall! This picture just cracks me up...especially with the title!

Very nice. This would have been very strong in the silhouette challenge. <7> Pushin' this one up a notch <8> Bumping this one up one last notch. I really enjoy looking at this image, and it deserves the extra credit. Very nice job! <9>

Wow! What an awesome silhouette!!! Love the colors in the sunset sky.

The sharpening halo around this image is quite strong - a smaller radius of USM would work wonders, I should think; though of course it might just be a camera setting. It's a reasonably interesting silhouette - and certainly catches the right moment compositionally. I think I'd have preferred a perfect silhouette, rather than the very dark sense of the guy's face and clothes there is here.

The house/shed/garage/wahtever it is in the bottom right hand corner is distracting.

A striking pose/composition. The overexposure on the sky is a tad much, I feel, and the shoe laces are getting my eyes. I particularly like the hands, both the one that appears joined with the ball and the spread fingers on the other. Quite expressive. There's a tuft of leaves right on top of the shed/building roof on the right side that's also catching a little. But nice all the same.

Pretty cool, would have done well in silhouettes too I guess, I like it.

This is an interesting photo and maybe one more suited to the recent silhouettes chellenge. I wish I could jump that high, even without a basketball!!
