Wow. Not only is the composition new and fresh, your control of the light in this is outstanding. What a fantastic unique image, not one that just anybody can walk out of their house and get. Great job!

Beautiful, Alexander. Absolutely beautiful lighting, POV, composition and framing, tonality, and digital darkroom work to bring in the light. You captured the sun at a perfect position and your Digital darkroom work brought the tonality back to the image.
Congratulations on your POTD!!!! Hope to see this again.
