I just really liked this pose. No crop, a few bright spots cloned out, a little exposure, contrast and clarity adjusments in Lightroom and that's about it. This one I think was shot using a beanbag resting on my camera bag on the ground. Thoughts?

Thanks for the kind words, Al. I too like the second pose, but overlooked it the first time through the set in favour of the more direct side shot. Not sure why. Take care, CK Nikonian in Ontario, Canada
