great shot, but I was thinking a fill flash would have stole the show. (7) ~mcmurma

Beautiful back light photo. I like that the focus is on the waves and not on the girl. -stephan

" SPRITE
1 A small or elusive supernatural being; an elf or pixie.
2 An elflike person.
3 A specter or ghost.
4 Archaic. A soul.

Interesting... Choice of Title/Photo is exceptional. Lighting EXAGGERATES title/theme. Photo quality is superb, technically sound and overall very good. 10

Cute idea, but too much detail of the "sprite" are lost in the silhouetting, esp her left hand. Ocean looks awsome! 7 Swash

Wish I could see her face.

Would like to see a little more detail on the girl so she's not just a silhouette, but great pic. Nice use of b&w.

Very nice! I have to be honest in saying that I can't quite tell if I'm looking at the front or back of her -- I'd love to see the expression on her face.

i love this!! i love the graduated tones and the fact that all you see of the little girl is her sillouette. it really does make her look like a little sprite or nyad! awesome. 9--amitchell

Aptyly titled. Very nice detail. Sat thinking for a while about the silhouette and whether or not it worked for me. In the end, I decided it does. Kind of add to the "just a moment in time" idea. Seems nostalgic. I like it. 8, just-married

Gorgeous silhouette! I love the way you caught her in action, with her hands and fingers at such a funny angle :)

I really like this shot. The colors give it such a warm feeling, and it makes it look like it is late in teh day. Kinda of a last splash of summer feeling. I give you a negative 6. Hahaha. karmat

Great .. really great ... nothing to say ... very nice control of exposure/shapes/reflections.... the movement is very 'real' for a 'static/with no 'blur effects' picture. 8 . lionel

like the sepia. nice mood and shilouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the sepia and the general "feel" of this shot, but don't like the fact that she is completely in silouette! I want to see the expression on her face. I would like to see a little more of the horizon in the shot. lhall-7

Nice job, I think B & W was the right choice here. The lighting on the water makes for a great backdrop.

I love the play of light on the water. I also love that you caught the child in silloutte. I am sorry that I can not add any constructive critisism to theis photo, but there is nothing I would change. BAMartin

Nitpick here, please feel free to ignore me :) I would have liked this better if the sky had been completely cropped out... The top should have ended at the waterline... This is a WONDERFUL shot in any respect and I'm scoring it a 9... the other crop may have been a 10

mood captured - overcome with joy over the small things in life
sincerity of expressions - posture fabulous; I can only assume she is smiling radiantly

I like the concept and composition but the lighting isn't good enough to warrant a high score ... 4 RLS

Wonderful; full of atmosphere created by a superb use of light and B&W (8)

Nice. Nice tones, light. Nice work. Yeap, I like this. Score 7 Justine

I love the sepia tone and gradation in the sand and water. I'd rather see a little more of the girl. There's too much detail to be a true silhouette so it'd be great to see her expression. 7 ~indigo997

very nice... i like mucho.

Composition 8 (I would liked to have seen either more or none of the sky. That small slither distracts me. Also I think the girl should be more in the middle, vertically, she looks great on the right, but now I'm just nit-picking.)
Originality 9
Technical Aspects 8 (The focus is more on the sea than the girl, I think it should be more on the girl.)
Meets Challenge 9
Total Score 8

beautiful photo... I think the composition on this one is perfect... especially for a candid shot... the darkness in this photo seems to enhance the theme quite a bit :) My only critique on this one would be to crop out the horizon completely. It's close enough to the top of the frame that it doesn't add anything to the image... = 10 - jmsetzler
