    Very handsome frame, with nice bright whites and beautiful Ft. Desoto background.

    I love the action here, and beautiful colours. I would not be opposed to a bit more room above, but works as is as well.

    Solid frame. Low angle and the pose are nice. Like the water droplets here.

    Love the bright whites and that strip of blue-green at the top of the frame.Water droplets are nice.
    I am with Dan on this and wish the head was raised a bit more to give some eye contact.
