    fantastic capture – the light is amazing and your composition works so well!

  • Thank you. I’m not too keen on the darkened edges, now that I look at it in the morning. It seemed okay last night late when I was post-producing this in Lightroom. :)

    Tim this is a very powerful image, I like the darkened edges, they make you peer into the picture. Well done.
