Greetings from the Critique Club.

Pretty good capture for the silhouettes II challenge. Looks like someone who is about to jump from a bridge, or fence, on to something.
Great silhouette shaped. It also looks like a action shot because the subject is on his toes. Very interesting how you got the idea for this photo setup. I am thinking that you may have shot this facing the afternoon sunlight.

Very unique and innovative way to shoot your subject. I suppose what leaves the viewer, is what is he doing? You don't see anything of the background, other than the pale blue sky.

So its interesting to a certain point, and then you start wondering where is this leading. Well its leading into a good silhouette shot. I am sure that you will get a mixed voter reaction here.

Technically there is not much you can do differently, Its more of a choice of subject and elements. Visually its a balance between light and dark. I like the way you filled the frame. It is evenly balanced, so that there is enought space on the top of the frame. This gives the image an open ended feel. You can almost feel the subject losing his balance, and wondering where is he going to fall on.

I notice the shutter speed camera setting appears vey high. Maybe you were expecting a jump shot, just guessing.

Overall a good idea. Good capture for silhouettes challenge.

Good luck in your next DPChallenge. Zagman.
