    Congrats on your highest Open finish ever! Great idea and well-done.

    Thank you all for your comments. I initially cropped it into square, but I kinda like the long shadow to the left which leads to her face. The background to the right is not helping. By the way this girl also appeared on my main entry.

    Congratulations Bryanshoots - This was a great choice for the back-lit theme.

    I like your choice of subject, and back lighting really works to focus attention on the little girl. I am intrigued by the shadows on the right, and would have preferred to see less of the greenery on the left, however, the background and the position of the sun may not have made this possible.

    I can relate to this, a great place to sit and chill and think! My top pick!

    Nicely done - great example of back lighting. My only small concern is the amount of space on the left hand side of the image. I think a bit of cropping in this area would emphasize the subject.

    A lovely, candid portrait which fits the theme well. My number 3 pick. (Have you tried cropping off the left side and making a square composition?)

    Like the pose of the girl but find the other pipe, etc., beyond to be distracting. Might it be better if she had taken refuge in that farther pipe?

    A very strong entry. I like the casual feel and the technical clarity of the subject.

    Beautiful! The backlight works perfectly through the tube - I also like the off centre composition.

    On theme for sure. Your model doesn't look too happy though. Excellent backlighting.
