great moment caught. have you tried converting it to black and white? Im just wondering if that would give it more impact aswell as removing the distracting rope? in the right hand corner. It's a very powerful image already. Hope you don't mind my critique :)

Don't mind your critique at all ;)
It is not very often I receive helpful critiques, so I take them all (positive or negative) :D

I was thinking about removing the rope from the background. Perhaps I'll give it a shot and see hwo it turns out; as well as making it black and white.

Thank you very much. :heart:
