::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Wicked shot! Definitely deserves the top ten finish :-) Congrats! This shot is AWESOME!

Composition:
It there anyway to make the composition work better? No, I don't think so. This works well for you.

Subject:
This is one of those photos where the whole photo becomes the subject. Good work on achieving that.

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
All spectacular and show competence on the part of the photog. I can tell this wasn't just a snapshot.

To grow its vote?:
Get a few others photos DQ'd ;-) No seriously, I don't think there is much you could have done to improve this AWESOME shot.

Summary:
AWESOME< AWESOME, AWESOME!!!!!

Hope to see more from you soon,
Leroy
