Karen Karen Karen.....I know, I need new models...but how can I pass on this one!? :D I took 250 shots - about 30 for 'dreams' and this one, though more of a 'reach' for the topic - is the best image I came up with. So enjoy. And if you tell me it doesn't meet the challenge, you'd better be

Beautiful silluette. The hair detail and colours are superb. Clever shot into the light really. The sky colour nicely contrasts with the yellows in the hair. The abstract shape of the silluette makes this very dramatic shot.

WOW! THis image invites the viewer to study it. The form is not readily identified, but then POW!!! it hits ya. If you're looking, I hope you find her. Nice strong image. I bet it will do well. 10 from me.

I love this shot, the hair, the silouette, the overall effect is stunning. The only thing that could have made this a 10 for me personally was a bit of soft focus on the leg area, just slightly to sharp for my taste in a dream manner.

But is that her? Who knows? I like the way the hair is lit here. Nice sillhouette, too. Good idea!

The silhouette goes well with the title: she's there but you don't know her yet. The backlit hair adds impact.

Is that an over sharpening artifact along the left edge of her arm, down the chest and up the leg??? I don't get what it's supposed to represent. Magical boobs??? (just kidding) Nice silhouette shot though!

Nice hair. Her pose doesn't add anything to the photo.

One of the best silhouettes I've seen. Very well done. 8.

I love the contrast between the color of hair and the blue background. Dreamy indeed.

I like this but I think a faster exposure or faster ISO to get the hair more frozen would help. as it is, the motion looks unintentional because it isn't emphasized.

Pretty hair....long. I think this was a good idea, very fitting for the challenge and shot well.

What an effect huh? I love it, the sun burning in the background behind the girl's silohuette, great. That deep blue sky and the sun shining of the girl's hair bring all the warmth into the image.

Whey - gorgeous colours and the obscuration of her makes her somewhat dreamlike. Very good idea and execution. (8)

nice silhouette...good color. I like the close crop and level you took this at.

nice outline, I did have trouble in deciding if she was the dream or the nightmare, with the hair like that.

I love this shot. I like the blacked out effect, with the hair still in color. :)
