Congrats, Jacques!
A wonderful image!
Definitely a 'wow'...
Nitpicking isn't the right thing to do here...
Well done

superb capture, jacques! :-)
awesome pose, well composed with wonderful colors and great sharpness,
it would be really perfect if it wasn´t for the bright spot on the back,
but that´s only nitpicking or my monitor is not calibrated right...
fantastic job & take care, thor.
