Hung my daughter off this tree using my rockclimbing gear, then cloned out the rope. The sunset was pretty light in color, so I made it warmer in tone. Other than that, I cloned out some power lines, resized, and saved.

Wow, I can't beleive the score on this photo. I agree with Claire that the house has a bit too much detail, but the color of the sky is phenominal!

Wonderful silhouette! I would like to see the houses in the background silhouetted too though. Great moment.

The tree doesn't bother me. I actually like it there with the fine edges on the leaves. I think I would like it with the tree, but if the tree was just a little above the child rather than the feet & head being mixed in with the leaves.

But I would prefer that the entire background (on the ground) be blackened out. The white on the houses shows up a bit and I think would be more effective as a complete sillohuete.

This is an interesting capture, but I do see why it didn't do well in the challenge. Voters here, for the most part, like to see the challenge met without having to think to much. I can also see why you'd enter it in this challenge. As far as improving it, I agree with the previous posters that wanted to see a cleaner background. Shooting this without that tree in the top of the frame would have improved it tremendously. I'd also like to see the shadows a bit deeper with more of the details lost in darkness. I see that is what you were going for, and making the subjects darker, along with the background elements would make for a much stronger silhouette image. I do like your rule of thirds use, but it also gets lost with the tree cluttering the top pf the frame. Just composing without the tree alone, in my opinion, would have boosted this one well above the 5 mark. I hope this helps.

Cute idea! The only thing that gets in the way is that the surroundings you've chosen look pretty still considering the situation... I like it though. Might have been nice to see the buildings all black as well. The light sections distract a bit.

A very interesting take on the challenge. I suspect most won't see "wind" here, but I like impression this creates of "wind", whether it be present or not. Very nicely done.

Cute pic, but I'm not really seeing a wind connection here. Sorry. Good luck in the challenge.
