Nice, but would like to see just how high off of the floor he is. Being back farther with him in the upper part of the photo might work better.

Not sure that I like this image sorry. Great feat of strength, but perhaps a better angle might add some pop to this shot. Good luck though. 6

Nice capture - Nice exposure - Just lacks drama as we don't know how high off the floor he is.
