This photo submitted by Anthony Salvo isn't a successful silhouette. The sky doesn't look natural; it would have been better to leave the colors of the sunset as they were. The cacti should be in focus, and the foreground should be either exposed correctly or completely blacked out. As it is now there is some detail and noise visible. I would also suggest cropping off some of the foreground on the bottom for a more appealing composition.
