I keep coming back to this shot, the amount of detail is amazing! To me every area of the image holds so much interest, it captivates me. Lovely color rendition and framing. Its even more amazing when you look at the camera settings! The D3 is quite a camera. You've caught me, now im off to look at the rest of your pictures!

The subject is lost in the background. I'd like to see more light on the subject, and the background less exposed. Nice use of DOF.

I have no idea what that is, but it doesn't look pleasant. It is, however, quite interesting!

I'm amazed!

Wow. This is amazing. It could be astounding. More light, maybe, on the face and front...closer POV on the hooks...maybe it tries to say too much all at once...still a 7 though...

how amazing that you have been able to capture this. The lines are amazingingly in focus, the body is in focus, teh colours just pop, the attention to detail is excellent. if there was a higher score than 10 you would have it . 10+
