What makes this image draw me in is that the person is in silhouette yet there is still light on the book. Makes it a real focal point of the image! Excellent tones and composition Jimmy! #16887

the picture has been turned to this really by the purpose of 'a silhouetted person with a lighted book'. thanks Carolyn, thanks Heather. #16929
