    EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT. In my opinion, the pic is well balanced and very natural. I love the candidness of the photo. It doesn't seem as if you staged the shot. If you did, I'm happy you didn't ask them to straighten their sweater. Awesome job Mr. Sawyer. Couldn't have done better myself.

    Thanks all! My model was too shy to have her face on the web, thus the pose. By tilting her head forward a bit, it accentuated the interaction of light around the edges of the hair.

    Good contre-jour example, especially with the halo in the hair. Nice colors in the figure and background, but the slightly bent-forward pose make me think she'e looking at her phone.

    Fascinatingly intriguing picture, would love to know where you got your inspiration.
Like the colours and the backlighting effect.

    I LOVE this shot! To me, this epitomizes "Backlighting". Love what the light did to the lady's hair. The only distraction is the wrinkles in the lower part of her sweater. I think it can be fixed by cropping just below her shoulder blades.

    Love this shot. Great use of symmetry and color. Nice light wrapping around the edges. Interesting that the subject is facing against the camera.
