Greetings from the Critique Club.

Welcome to DPC :)

Interesting image, which definitely meets the challenge. However, there are a number of ways of improving it.

The clouds look good, and I like the mysterious off-centre silhouette. The title works well with the image, and the ray of sunlight going across the person's face looks very cool. However, as has been commented on already, the background blends into it and somewhat clutters up the image. Moving around or taking the photo from a different angle in order to get rid of the buildings would greatly improve it.

There's also a lot you can do with editing. I'm not sure turning it B&W would have been a good idea (the blue sky is pretty nice), but there are a number of PhotoShop adjustments you can use to bring out the colours and improve the image. 'Levels' to lighten the sky a bit, brightness and contrast adjustments to make the image more clear, maybe a 'sharpen' (helps images a lot of the time). There's also quite a lot of noise in the sky, there's a number of noise reduction programs you can use to change that (Neat Image is the one I use, it's free to download).

Anyway, hope this helps, message me if you have any questions. And do keep submitting stuff, I look forward to seeing more of your entries!

Picture me cocking my head sideways and placing my finger on my temple and saying "HUH?"

And lovely photo, as well. :-) I suspect this won't score highly but I just love it for the reality it shows, but in an artistic and pleasing way. 10.

Comment by SaraR:
To work well silhouettes need to clearly define a shape. Here the picture is too cluttered; for example, the two buildings to the left of the subject are distracting and cause the silhouette of your model to become less ditinct.
