This is my first posting... This pic really stood out. My only "negative" comment would be, "At first I thought the model had a 'hairy chest.' I wish the model's hair was not resting on her chest..." A pleasing picture, nonetheless. Thanks ;-)

Very well deserving image. Truely excellent.

The great strength of the silhoutte is again demostrated with this super strong image which illicits even more emotion than a full toned image. Very expertly composed. Congratulations on your BLUE!

The color of reds in the contrast makes this picture almost look like a sunset.

Nice use of color and silhouette - effective.

Many faith pictures, however, this one stood out from the others well. I like the simplicity, colours and feeling given from this photograph

Amazing work. I am sure you will place high. The use of shadow is outstanding, in contrast to the background coloring.

nice colour, sharp silhouette, nice photo

Hair is quite distracting, but otherwise a crisp and beautiful silhouette. If you use this for anything else, I'd suggest cloning out the hair.

Nice silhouette and very cool lighting. Appropriate for the title and challenge. Good luck in the challenge. 9

Not a religous man but I like this photo, the colour is really beautiful and the silhoutte works well.

Simple, yet very strong. You may get some comments referring to this as cliched but the reason some things become a cliche is because they are so strong at conveying a concept or message that they become shorthand for doing so. Doesn't make them any less effective at doing so. Really nice sharp edges to the silhouette, a good composition and nice colour range in the background.

I like the backlighting, which works well with the silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2006 05:57:33 PM
The silhouette is outstanding and the rays of sun are amazing

I'm seeing a lot of icons in the challenge. But yours at least portrays someone actually demonstrating Faith. Nicely done silouette too. Well done.
