This shot is fantastic!! It is beautiful and dramatic in it's simplicity. I see this shot and I think, "why didn't I think of that?" But of course it is not that simple. Some of the very best ideas are ready to capture almost right in front of us but it won't ever happen without the vision, which you obviously have. Excellent job.

Excellent composition, excellent clean outline. Nice framing. The one think I wonder about is the top left line seems to be a bit thicker then the bottom of that line. Wish it was mine!

I really liked this but my computer played up so I didn't vote but love the pic. well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2003 12:18:16 AM
Now I know why this pic stood out to me when I saw it in the thumbnails... It looks like the "Black Angus" commercials (a restaraunt). Great job, and a good win!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2003 12:18:00 AM
The way you worked the frame into this one is, what I think, really made it stand out. It almost appears as though she's in a window frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2003 12:15:24 AM
Exquisite framing and exposure. Great shot - I'm inspired!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2003 12:08:00 AM
wow. This is excellent! Congratulations on your ribbon, there is hardly a thing I'd want different about this shot except maybe a little more colour in the sky (but that's a nit!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is great! Nice job on the contrasting againt the background. The only thing that I would say is that if there was more colour in the background, it would fit with the 'outback' theme better. A very well executed shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/30/2003 07:40:29 PM
Beautiful shot. The blue in the sky and her shirt and jeans compliment eachother. I like the body position and the profile. It's very old western, though of course it isn't because she does happen to have on a tank top and jeans, but lets not get too technical. I like it.

Great idea, nicely captured sillhouette. Very effective crop. Shame the sky isn't more dramatic/ interesting. 8

oh yeah, a contender for sure! Good job on the silhouette and perfect framing. Her boobs look fake, but that's not your fault :). 10

One of the best in this challenge. Excellent framing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2003 02:59:14 PM
Nicely done. I like how it's almost a silhoette but not quite. Framing really puts her in a box though so doesn't quite feel as free and peaceful as it might were the subject not hemmed in in this way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2003 09:38:26 AM
Nice interpretation.... Especially the bumps..

09/25/2003 01:05:32 AM
Very reminiscent of those black sillouhettes of the cowboys I see in people's farmyards. I like both the composition and the lighting on this.

It's a typical shot... but done very well... great background!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/24/2003 11:17:28 AM
Great shot, i think a little more contrast would make it perfect, but it's still a nice shot.

Nice silhouette reminds me of the old Marlborough ads.

Certainly says "At rest"

I've always liked silhouettes and this one works wonderfully, a bit of color/light shows on the blouse but though I noticed, it doesn't detract for me. Kudos!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/24/2003 12:48:51 AM
Wonderful. The cropping makes it look like she's resting against the frame of the picture. A 10 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/24/2003 12:19:11 AM
great silouette and great job in your cropping and framing. she really looks like she is supported by the image border.
