Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a great shot of the drummer in the band but I'm betting you got a lot of, "Doesn't really fit the challenge" because you can see so much detail in his face and such. Now, let me look and see if I was right. Yep, I was right. It has the potential to be a great silhouette with stronger lighting behind the drummer to darken him up a bit more.

I had given this a 5 during the challenge because it is a great capture of an action shot but like I said earlier, not quite a silhouette. The cropping is well done and the overall composition of the shot also works very well. Just need to have a stronger light behind him.

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

Nice capture, not much of a silhouette though... Some noise evident in his face that distracts a little.

He is slightly too well lit to be a real silhouette. Complaints aside, I think the shutter speed must have been pretty good, as I think that level of drumstick movement is just about right, and everything else is sharp enough.

Nice shot, but it's not a silhouette.

The black background makes it hard for this to be a siihouette. Sorry this is way off topic in my view.

I like this iamge more than most of the others in this challenge. What I like is the perspective, the lighting on the drun and symbols and the natural silhouette agains the backlighting.. and the expression on the drummer. Oh, and the composition :-)
Nice work

Nice shot, I like the blue light on the drumskins and the bronze colour of the cymbal.It might not be "silhouettey" enough for some..but I like it...8
