    Very nice subject choice. It shows off the backlighting very well.

    Calm, classic and somehow dignified. Well taken.

    Great choice for a silhouette and the highlights also work well.
I might have gone for a lower angle to remove some of the distracting horizon, cars etc

    Lighting is perfect here! Just enough features of the statue are lit. The "glow" around the statue is nice too.

    Very nicely backlit and composed - like the simplicity. Slight halos around figure suggest maybe a bit over-sharpened.

    Nicely done silhouette, and I like that you were able to capture some light on the statue's body also. Wonder why "Admin" removed the reference to the city where this statue resides? It's an easy Google search to find that it's located in Claremore, OK - where Will Rogers is entombed.

    If only it is possible to shoot againt the light because it looks like the light is coming to the side. Interesting subject.
