Ótrúlegt, maður rennir í gegnum myndir og sér, já, þetta er íslensk mynd og já, það var rétt.
Flott mynd.

Great shot. I would have liked to see this shot with the Model higher on the hill and more space in front of her. One could even crop the right side of the photo out close to models hand. ( you can try this by using your hand to view the Print. If I would have voted on this I would have given this a 10

As I said during the voting, I think this is just stunning. I gave it one of my few 9's. It offers so much visually and from an artistic standpoint, there isn't any critique I could give. The silhouette against the brooding sky evokes so many emotions. Congratulations on your high placement.

How the hair mimics the grasses is such a delight for my eyes. A wonderfully composed photograph with a feeling of sublime richness. Regardless of other comments, you did everything right for this image.

I would like to see more sky, as opposed to the large amount of grass.

08/27/2005 11:52:05 AM
Tasteful image and very moody. Superbly silhouetted. I love the dramatic clouds and the light on the hair.

Iceland?

Nice shot, silhouette, sky, body, face, hair. Very cool lighting on the back of her head! Natural of hidden spotlight?

Love this one.

The coloring and moodiness of the sky combined with the profile view of the model is good along with the clarity of the picture. The only thing I would suggest improving is the position of her back arm. Since it is a silhouette, her arm blends into her body and makes her look wider than I feel she is.

Very cool. Great composition. Really emotive image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 03:09:21 AM
I realy like this silhoette, the only part that I'm undecided if compliments or pulls away from the photo is the slight bit of colour seen in the hair. I'd be interested to see this in duotone..
Excellent overall.. - 9

I'd like this better with a little more light on the model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 12:03:30 PM
good job! i like the lighting and how the model is more of a silouette! good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 11:01:03 AM
This is one of my favourites because the backlight adds interest and I like spiritual contemplative aura about this woman. I wonder if you're going to get flak about the space the subject is looking into being smaller than the one behind her but I don't think it's a problem in this image. Maybe it's part of your intent in the meaning?

Stormy sky background, flowing hair with hint of light on it gives this photo excitement. Would like to see more of girl and sky and less of ground but I still like it very much.. Absolutely beautiful colors. I gave it an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:18:28 AM
One of my favorites this challenge. Simple and visually very dynamic nude. I love the fact that we see some detail in the hair from the light source on the right. Beautiful sky! Colros are great. Excellent silhouette. And what can I say about the composition!!! Stunning. Can I be picky? If I may... I wish there had been a bounce used to slightly reflect light on her left, maybe from below. I think it would have been delicious to see just a hint of those curves on the body, yet keeping the overall silhouette effect. Just my two cents. Good job! 8

08/23/2005 03:14:54 PM
love the silohuette! I really ilke how the wind is blowing the models hair backwards and lifting it into the air. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 02:49:24 PM
Very lovely. The sharp focus on the grass, her hair blowing in the wind, and the light hitting her hair, really make this. Quite a pleasing composition. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 01:28:42 PM
I like the concept of this shot might have worked well if you would have done more curveture of the body as the shilouette.

Well done technically, but boring compositionally. 6.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:13:20 PM
Very lovely shot. I love sillouette's like this. I think that the sky looks a bit processed. If I'm wrong, I apologize.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:28:02 PM
nice movement in the hair
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:52:14 PM
I like this silhouette a lot. Good fast shutter speed to stop the blowing hair really adds some interest. I think I might have preferred the model looking into the center rather than out the left side; though this would have given the shot a different feel, which may not be what the photographer intended. Nice dramatic sky too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:36:03 PM
Well, I like the silhouette, but I think that there is too much. The grass is too much, and I would have shown more sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:07:22 PM
This is breathtaking. I love the black and white feel with just a tad bit of color. Great lighting in the hair. I am giving you a 10. Great shot. good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 08:41:39 PM
Nice idea. I think the image may gain something by having the model more on the right side instead of the left; as it is now my eye goes in the direction she's looking and I abrubtly stop. And to pick a nit, I think having no light on hair -having her in absolute silhouette- would really kick it up a notch, at least for me. Nice capture and good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 08:23:02 PM
very strong image. love the silhouette against such a great sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 07:54:59 PM
Great composition, tasteful nude. Super siluette. Burning a bit extreme, but adds a little mood to the shot. Only thing bothering me is the jagged outlines of the girl, maybe too much sharpening? Don't know if using more then 50kb would have helped? Great effort, this one is going to my favorites.

Nice silhouette. Composition/crop excellent. Lighting works for the image. Tones well rendered except the back of the head (funky off coloring in her hair). 7 - good luck in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 04:08:40 PM
I like the use of the silhouette in this challenge. The backlighting on the hair is very nice. The only thing that really detracts for me is the fact that the right shoulder seems to be in a very awkward and uncomfortable position. Maybe a little more attention to the pose would help?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 03:18:49 PM
Excellent shot! I gave it my highest score. I really like the profile effect in the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:26:27 PM
A very good sihouette, plenty of mood.
I think i would prefer more of the right side of the picture to be cropped as my eye keeps wandering to the side. but otherwise well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:52:21 AM
nicely done. If anything, I wish your model where not lokking "out" of the frame, but in to the frame. It leaves so much emty space on the right side of the photo. But nice ; )

Nice photo but not spelling your title correctly makes me think you don't care enough about your entry. I think the composition is good and the perspective is perfect for the shot. I like the touch of sunlight on the hair.

i love this image. The little wisp of hair makes it for me. Beautiful silhouette.
Technically speaking, the storm cloud to her left is a little heavy - it might have been nice to burn in some of the other clouds around her so that the image didnt tilt so much to the left. Bit of bradP-ing in photoshop haha. I really do love this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:56:31 AM
Very nice. Love the fact that her hair mimics the twigs growing up. The light and the clouds are beautiful.
