Awesome lighting, very interesting shpt. #231161

Excellent idea and composition. To maximize the impact, the shadow line on the face should fall on the line of symetry you have created. That would require the light moving forward a little until the line was on the center of the face and hands. Still, this photo has a great impact. #1219975
