lovely shot but I feel the two trees are fighting for your attention, maybe just one would have been better, just my opinion of course.

For me, multiple subjects have not been working well in this challenge. However, this is different. My attention starts at the tree on the left, is pulled to the stump on the right where the car directs my attention along the road (? - from title, but works without) until it find even the smallest silhouette. Very well composed. My 10 for this challenge.

Your use of sillhouette successfully flattens the depth here so it matches the title nicely. Fun work!

I wonder how many folks wiil take the time to look at this shot and see the youngone on the bike? Great shot. I really like the colors in the sky.

Beautiful sky! This shot works really well for several reasons:
1. The car
2. The person on the bike
The person on the bike really adds to the effect of size, the car also serves this smae purpose. I do feel, however, that the crop is a little too tight on the left. Personally, I would have liked to see a little more space by the biker, preferably the same as the right side, this would help balance the shot. Otherwise this is a nicely done shot and should do well. Good luck!

Very nice silhouette. I love the color of the sky. Everything really looks sharply etched against the background.

nice natural color sky, without al the UNatural oversaturated colors you see in other sky / silhouette images ( I know how tempting it is to do). Just my opinion but, the tree on the left has MUCH more visual appeal than anything in this image. I would have focused my attention (no pun) on that alone in the image against the sky. Anyway, nice capture

Very graphic image with nice colors. The bicylist is a bit close to the left side and I'd like to see a bit more space between the SUV and the tree behind it.

Not sure wether the biker on the left adds anything. Or even the car. Just those two old trees would also have been strong. Great colors.
