beautiful silhouette :) I love the photos this week where the subject is the negative space... good idea :) Compositionally, I would like this photo better if the walker was on the left side of the frame rather than the right. I don't know if that was possible in this photo or not however.... When you have a subject that is 'moving' in the frame, it is usually a good idea to leave space in front of the subject so that the motion has room to 'continue' in the frame... great shot :) = 8 - jmsetzler

nice shadow shot. I don't like the sign right in front of him. A little distracting. Good shot. 5

minus that sign or whatever it is, this would be fabulous!

I like this shot because I can really relate to it. My grandparents used to have to walk a levee when there town was getting beseiged by the mighty Red River in ND. One time I was in town with them. We walked for two hours. Great pictures

Great cloud coverage!! Definitely meets the challenge, but I am afraid I will have to take a point off for the sign, it would make a much better shot if it wasnt there, just imagine the pic withour it. Nice work. 7 Gmo

Great picture, but the single cloud in the sky distracts from the subject. 6

i don't really know, but you may already know this. technically the picture would probably seem stronger if she were on the left side walking to the right. that way it doesn't feel like she is about to leave the shot, unless thats what you were going for.

I'm a big fan of color so I wish the sky were pink or blue, but this is a great shot nonetheless. You might want to get rid of those limbs on the lower left after the challenge. It's a great silhouette. The lower right sky is a little blown out. Good Luck. 8 ~indigo997

This is a great photo but I find that the cloud in the upper left keeps drawing my eye away from the main subject which is exactly the opposite of what negative space is supposed to do (at least that's my understanding) I still like the photo though and I have trouble getting clouds to move for me too. rcrawford 6

Great silouette.

The sign is a problem.

Definitely meets the challenge, and nice composition, but lacks that *something* that completely engages my interest. lhall-6

Warm colors and the sun behaving perfectly to brighten the background cloud. The silhouette is suprisingly detailed and makes for great texture and depth.

X marks the spot......

Nice, but I wish that sign wasn't there...I assume the walker is approaching a sign. Anyway, it really takes away from the shot. Otherwise, I really like it. The sky is beautiful. Make for my impression of negative space.
