  Wow! Thank you all for the comments! I think that this is the first ever POTD I have had at Betterphoto.

This photo is being published in the very near future, and has won me an amazing (once in a lifetime) prize that I am not yet at liberty to share with you!

Thank you again.

Robert

  So.. how much did it cost you to get him to pose like that? Seriously, Robert - this shows the patience of a true photographer. It's a one-of-a-kind shot that you ought to be proud of.
