Wow, this is an amazing picture!! Great POV!
Very well done! TFS

Great composition with the dirt and dying plants at the bottom of the frame.

An incredible shot here Alec, even the pp work is outstanding! It brings out so much emotion! Wonderful BW shot, even the thumbnail is an eye catcher! Brilliant!

Hi Alec
Competent manipulation of burn/dodge to create the light effect here, and good choice to deliver this in black and white, although there are some uneven areas that, in my opinin, could have been better controlled.
I love the details on the ground around him.
