@condra was the Judge!!
One of the reasons I love backlit portraits is how it can flatter a models hair and add atmosphere. This is a beautiful portrait.
The almost silhouetted figure of the subject here is accentuated by the starkness of the lighting. The first thing we notice is the most important aspect of this image; our models dramatic pose and athletic form.
This portrait stood out as a clear winner for me. The back lighting which causes the feathers to glow, not only separates our subject from the background, but gives us a beautiful insight into the structure of the costume. Fantastic photo.
