Great image David. It is a great portrait even without all the drama, but the dramatic side makes it even more intense. The composition here is unbeatable. The shape and darkness if the shadows on the left seem to be looming after him, and the worst of the visable injuries being so close to this shadow really creates a massive tension here.

Great capture. David
