Nice composition, specially with the moon which add a special feel to the image. I suspect it was take with already dim lighting which may explain the lack of contast and the gain in the image. TFS

Impressive catch ...
Even considering already mentioned lack of contrast, and probably your having to crop the original shot to somehow zooming on the subject, its very well composed

Hi Ray,

Nice perspective on an interesting subject.
He looks like he's wrapped in a cloak, perhaps to guard against a chill evening air.

I wonder what it would have looked like could we see what he's standing on?
