Wow - lovely, intricate patterns. Some of it seems a little overexposed, like the sky was the part being read for exposure - but in thinking about it, without that lightening, some of that fabulous detail in the fountain might have been lost. Nice submittal! :-)

to take care of the overexposure, and losing the details in the fountain, it is best to use flash, but an outboard flash works best, because it's more powerful

you did well for exposing such a tough situation

nice

Nice shot, choeschen. My take is that since this is the silhouette challenge, you deliberately exposed for the sky, thus underexposing the fountain and yielding a silhouette of sorts.

OH, yes. It's just that as the eye wanders over the photo, what I originally thought was the silhouette ends up being fine detail and my eye is caught by something else silhouett-y until it notices the intricacies. This is very appropriate for the challenge, and almost magical in its detail yet silhouette. :-)
