In his own dark space with only enough light to read. And great light it is.

Love the light and I love the expression you have captured in this powerful image. If this were mine (I wish) I would have applied an elliptical vignette so that the image faded into the black background all round. In fact I did. If you want to see my version the usual messaging with an e-mail address will get it to you.
