Comment by Dr.Confuser:
I love this starkly abstract image. You have the massive engineering of the bridge contrasted with the soft pastels of the sky and the analog shape of the water. Maybe pull a little yellow out of the water and you've got a ten here.

Comment by Leo:
Interesting shot. Like the play of light and shadows. Like the patterns created by the rocks and the shadows. Nice capture of the rainbow.

Critique Club Critique

First Impressions
Don't mind the concept with the sun, flare and statue - but for a famous statue that has been photographed thousands of times, you'd have to either be very creative or produce a very technically sound image for it to truly captivate your audience. I voted this a 4 during the Challenge - primarily for the potential and what I perceived what some creativity.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Just read your comments - I think there is the potential to turn this 'backlit' (silhouetted) moment into a dramatic scene. Sure, the sun might not be that best placed to do so, but I still think there is potential in post processing with the image as is to give it more drama.

As is, cropping the sun out entirely, in fact a very bold crop almost half way down, leaving a few clouds at top right and on the left, frames her quite well. Possibly even a toning applied, but that would produce 'another' image.

'She' also needs a nudge up on the right to straighten her out.

Even with the framing and composition as is, perhaps there is potential, again with toning or b&w to push this into an artistic realm further, who knows.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
348/418 tells me that people perhaps saw a snapshot and also the sun 'hurt their eyes' so didn't linger long in the image. A score of 5.12 is fairly good for a low placement.

An average of 8.25 is excellent from your commenters and they all seemed to really like it. You have one especially helpful comment in there.

Summary
Good potential, well seen - just some experimenting in processing with the image as is. If you get the opportunity again, trying to garner a better angle for sun placement (and watching the exposure), may provide some added element interest.
