The composition is outstanding, Alec, and it's stunning in black and white.
Fifty years ago, I was taught to put catch lights in the eyes to show the subject is alive, and you've done exactly that, giving a positive spiritual force to your subject.
Congratulations on your POTD and second prize winner! #8864444
