Wonderful use of negative space in your composition, Holly, and the toning is beautiful also. The range of light and shadow is superb. A stunning photo in all respects!

Wow, Holly, this is wonderful. I love the pov, lights and shadows and the lone figure walking home. Love the toning and sense of solitude...
