Great title, great pose. The action is beautifully frozen complimenting the static chair and the positioning of the two relative to each other works well. Lighting is spot on too. Very deserving of it's GE award! Smile

Excellent set up Richard. Before you print the wrinkles in the backdrop could do with tidying up (behind the chair) - I would be tempted to remove the transition line in the backdrop too as it cuts the image and detracts from the smoothness of the background.
