@rsjaffe: That might make a nice silhouette, but it's not low key. The background should be obscure and very dark with low illumination on the subject. Please try again.

Cheers... Brian

Ironically enough I was initially went to this statue to take silhouette pictures, but thought that the reflections would disqualify it as a silhouette.

@rsjaffe: You don't get high marks for composition, but the low key aspects of the photo are well done. That's a pass.

@ uly

The T-shirt is letting your shot down. The shirt is not the subject and should be dark (or even white). It also seems more strongly illuminated on the shoulder than the subject. There's also a distraction (a tablecloth?) in the top left corner.

Please try again.

ulyshut, I think the dark clothing of the subject is much better, however the background (especially the white blob at her right) spoils the low key character. So pls. try again.

I liked the composition of your previous shot better, this one is too central, and you can easily crop some from the top.
