8 from me (earlier) It's so peaceful. I love the sharpness of the canoer... but wish the foreground were in the DOF a bit more.

In my top 3. Great and well balanced composition, good exposure, great action and motion, good use of foreground bokeh (not easily done) and the silhouette adds something to the composition, which was, in my opinion, the real challenge.

I am finding that the real difficulty in this challenge was having the silhouette be a focal point AND add something to the image instead of just being a random item plopped in front of a light source so there would be a silhouette no matter how distracting or useless it was to the overall image. You are one of a tiny handful who pulled this off. Well done.
