    Quite a pleasing image, Joe. For a white subject on high key effect, presents well.

    The simplicity is great in terms of image design and the lone perch. Somewhat of a contemplative pose is cool.

    As a personal matter, I like the position of the body in the frame, using the 1/3 rule, however because the neck and head are so outstretched, it leaves me desiring the subject to be further right in frame (the eye ends up in the left portion of the frame).

    All in all, well processed and well seen.
