You know, of the many submissions I've seen on this contest, this has to be one of the best that followed rules, and provided a very telling story. There's mystery, question, and some awe in this image an describing it all is quite a challenge. The emotion behind and in this image is... Drawing. It pulls you in. Technically speaking, the form, lighting, and value all feel appropriate. I feel I'm giving a bad 'critique' really but if there's anything specific you want commented on here let me know. Anyhow this has to be one of my favorite works as of late. Keep it up.
