      Strong image. Quite underrated I think.

      Several others have done what you did here -- use a high ISO and super short exposure time. As a result you get a dull, lifeless sky. You really want to use the base ISO and they expose for the sky. You can always darken the shadow tones where you don't care about color.

      I don't understand the brightness difference of the water in the foreground vs the middle ground. That's the main detractor from a higher ranking.

      I'd shoot when the sailboat crossed the sun's reflection in the water for a better silhouette.

      Very nice composition. I would exposure bracket this scene and try to get the moon more properly exposed. You want the tree to be black anyway.

      Nice silhouette. I'd like a bit more brightness and color in the sky.

      No problem with the halos -- I like them. I'd like the grass not touching the edges of the frame and to include the junction where the lower branch joins the main stem.

      Very nice silhouette and color. I'd crop up from bottom to cut out half of water. This would have the perceptual effect of bringing the tower forward and making a stronger compositional statement.

      Good silhouette. Love the wet dog.

      I like the mood of the scene. I'd prefer the foreground grass to either be silhouetted or eliminated.

      Interesting superposition of text with silhouette. Not sure I like the highlight vignette.

      Lovely composition. The fog really adds to the mood as well as providing a perfect background for the silhouettes. If the tree branches coming in from the upper left were not there it would be even better.

      Beautiful and peaceful.

      Perfect silhouette. Caught my eye immediately and instant favorite. The birds add a neat contrast to the manmade structure.

      The strong points are the crescent moon, beautiful sky colors, and interesting palm tree silhouettes. It would be nice if the shot could have placed the moon above or closer to the palms and eliminated the other trees. Most importantly, glad you are safe! Fires are scarier even than hurricanes and less predictable.

      Right on theme -- nice silhouettes. I did find that that the activity in the backround -- surfer and breaking wave -- kept pulling my eye away from the subject silhouettes.

      Right on theme. Good timing -- even the dog is in step. When viewing this I accidentally scrolled the image up such that the humans were cut off about waist level and found I liked the composition even more because it increased the focus on the feet and eliminated the line between sand and water that was distracting to me.

      This is a bit like a Rorschach inkblot test. One's imagination can see what it wants. It would be nice to lighten the blue so there's a little more contrast.

      An interesting shape but it's not exactly a true silhouette as there is lots of detail in the flower petals from the backlighting. I'm not sure you can create a silhouette of a non-opaque subject.

      This looks out-of-focus. Also ISO 1250 seems quite high for shooting a silhouette. I would suggest shooting at your base ISO, expose for the sky, which is blown out in the lower right, and let everything else go to black.

      Striking image and I would rank it highly except I don't consider it to be a silhouette with all the color and light tones in the building.

      The branches create a nice abstract design. I'd lighten the background a bit to improve the contrast and not frame it quite so tightly. Right now it feels a bit cramped.in that frame.

      I like the concept and nice bird silhouettes. I feel like a more vertical rectangular framing showing more of the bottom of the tree would feel more natural and balanced. I'd bring up the brightness of the background and reduce the color noise there too.

      I see this as a nice monochrome, but not exactly a silhouette because there is a range of grey scale throughout, i.e., some parts of everything in the scene have some shades that are not pure black.

      Congratulations! Another dominant first and second place finish.
