    Hi friends, thank you very much for the votes that saved me from the bottom of the pickle barrel :-D
And thanks for the comments!
Jade, over the years I learned that my monitor must be set much brighter than yours. But what you said about the lack of drama is my concern with this shot too! I for myself liked the picture, but it does not really tell a story... :-(
Hmm... maybe more light and details would have helped for the interest - but not for the drama. I will try to remember this for future entries.
Thanks!

    Right on theme. In this sort of image it is difficult to get the balance of light just right. Perhaps a little more here would make it stand out better.

    Too dark, too much dark, and too little drama, for me. I think it is probably the lighting which I think this image could have used more of. That said, as a low key image, it certainly is evocative of that mood.

    Great shot. I know it is Low Key but I would have preferred to see a little more detail of Kekoa. In my t5 anyway. I hope he can keep the house safe while you are on vacation:-)
