I was pretty excited to find out about the silhouettes challenge... living on the beach where the sun sets beautifully almost everynight it wasn't hard to take some interesting shots... I chose this shot over my others because I was a big fan as to the subjects pose, I found it kind of intruiging... hehe

Great silhoutte and great water and sky. Bump.

Beautiful colors in sky and highlights on water.

What a wonderful pose! And I love the duality in the composition between the figure and the sun and its reflection--brilliant! :-)

Sweet... feels a tad soft & noisy, but overall really nice. I'd like to see it with more DOF, so the water and sky were somewhat crisper.

Really love the composition and colours, but the subjects pose makes me think of a "wigger" (i.e. Eminem). The title helps tell the story and if the subject was simply standing their staring out to the ocean, it would have had a more dramatic effect IMO. Still a beautiful image. Good Luck.

The colors make this image work. Very nicely captured.

It sort of appears as if the model is acting "gangsta." "Come on water... just try to splash me. You best watch yo back." ; )

It's actually an impressively beautiful photo.

would have been better as a true black silhouette.

I don't care too much for the pose of the model or the seemingly oversaturated colors, but the overall composition of this shot is very nice!

Love the detail and texture on the water, and I like the composition. This seems to have a purple cast over the whole image that just doesn't look natural.

Wonderful sky, very good composition and pose of the model. For me silhouette has to be totally dark, but it isn't in this image: That is the only thing I can fault and despite that a very good shot.
