Great shot.Fantastic photo with excellent composition and definition.
He's not stretching his leg..
He's saying back-off you one eyed monster! ;}
Very good exposure, detail/DOF and natural color.
I like the square comp/framing, makes em' look the solid citizen type :)
The frontal POV with direct eye contact is great too..
