This shot is captivating.

Walter gives an excellent suggestion for another shot. Just to add to his idea, if you can position your camera to include a full moon directly behind to back light your subject along with forelighting using your car's headlights again or flashlight. What works very well too is to use a full moon in the background on a very foggy early morning when it's still dark.

My hat is off to you bro. This rocks!
Wow, it's an honor for ME to read such words from you Kevin - thank you so much for stopping by and telling me your opinion (and for showing me a new word, "captivating" )!

Thank you too for taking up Walter's lightning suggestion and "expand" it with the moon/fog thing... that would be a great shot, but unfortunately I'm waiting for fog since last December ...

It was my pleasure Markus to comment on such a great photo. It's always exciting not only to try out new things but seeing others go for it too. Your talent can only improve by being creative. If you find yourself on a plateau, then it's time to do the crazy things that stretch the imagination.

Walter's got a great idea and he's got his finger on that one all credit to him for seeing even more potential here for you. Good luck!
