Globe picture editor Lloyd Young sent me his Final 50 choices from all of your Silhouettes entries, along with these thoughts on your photos:
"I've seen quite a few silhouettes over my years of editing and shooting images for newspapers. The best are aesthetically driven and technically excellent. They should be images you'd hope someone might want to frame and hang on their wall.
"I was impressed by a good many of the images submitted for this month's contest, with their attention to color, thoughtful framing, and a few with genuine moments.
"As you continue to shoot silhouettes, concentrate on the technical details by nailing the exposure on the highlights, and really pay attention to the separation between the edges of the silhouetted object and your overall frame."
As I said before, we're going to discontinue the voting according to the poll results. Therefore, we'll post Lloyd's Top 10, including First, Second, and Third Place, on Wednesday. Meanwhile, check out the finalists:
