Thanks so much everyone. I'm still in the learning stages, so all the comments are much appreciated. I do agree that in general the de-centered figure would have been a stronger composition, but I consciously decided that a centered, balanced composition worked for this "peace" challenge.

right in the center?

This is a really nice concept, although I don't think the centered composition was the strongest choice here.

One of my faves of the challenge. I love the silhouette against that gradient sky. I'm just trying to picture being able to work out in a setting like that and I think I'm jealous :) Very peaceful indeed.

The yoga makes this picture. The value in the sky add to it to make a beautiful picture.

I think maybe you should have moved the person a little more to the left?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2008 11:00:44 AM
The area is peaceful but maybe closer up would have been better, maybe the person could have been bigger.

Great silhouette
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a beautiful silhouette! A tighter crop may have emphasized the pose more, and the sky seems a little grainy on my monitor (could just be me, though).

Lovely. This is one of the most peaceful yoga images I have seen so far.

awesome shot, the black creates that sense of peace
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very clean use of negative space. Touch of grain distracts slightly but still like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2008 06:33:07 PM
I like the idea of this image.as personal opinion perhaps was better a decentered composition with the subject in the low left side. 8

I LOVE this! I'm a big fan of silhouettes. A big fan of perspective shots. And of course who isn't a big fan of sunsets! You nailed it

The color coming up from the mountain really make this look like a peaceful picture, along with the yoga pose. Amazing job
