Has a Narnia feel about it Clive, my only reservation about the shot is I think the crop is tight, bottom, left & right. Otherwise I feel this could really have been an EC winning shot!.....It's still a great shot despite this IMHO, well done Clive.

Many thanks for the comments, they're all much appreciated.

Ade, I thought someone might mention the tightness of the crop. I'll have a little play over the next few days when I get back home and see what I can come up with.

Thanks again
Clive

Not sure how I missed this one Clive. Personally I like the tight crop, but then each to their own eh!

Love the detail and colours too, well done on the HC.

Very, very nice - The tight crop, and the black background really work well on this shot. I have to agree with the previous comment about Narnia - you can imagine Aslan looking like this after the battle with the White Witch!
