Beautiful light here with nice details in the sky.
I like how the person is off to the edge of the image, gives a nice sense of height and depth.
My ONLY complaint is the person looks like he is about to fall over, from your POV they are really leaning. A quick straighten will fix that.
It's a great image overall.

I have not converted any of my cameras to IR yet Gary. Love the drama it sets in the clouds. Nice Silhouette of the photographer #9352431
