I love the lighting in this! What a cool photo! It would be interesting too to see what you could do with it in advanced editing. Great job.

If HE were lit up this would be a golden portrait. You needed to take the shot from the opposite angle with the sun behind you and illuminating the subject.

I like this captured moment - it is definitely descriptive of a random moment of an interesting character - i think it might be more powerful he is highlighted more in the face - making his expression more visible, drawing the eye in that direction. I realize this is basic editting and we can't have everything :)

The water dripping from his feet makes it (extra point)
