    Haha. I really like this shot. I just wish he(she?) wasn't dead center, but that is a personal thing. It is still a really nice image though.

    I like it, but I wish I could see his shadow connecting with the shadow on the wall.

    Very effective though!

    settings:
    Nikon d100: 28-80mm.
    f-stop: 4.2
    shutter speed: 1/100
    and a nikon sb-800 fired wirelessly with a pocket wizard.

    I was set-up with the camera on a tripod about 15 feet away and directly behind the subject. and I had my nikon sb-800 sitting on a reciever about 15 feet to the left just about between me and the subject on the ground pointed up about 20* with a funnel/zisor over the head of the flash to create that spotlight-like effect.

    As for the subject being dead centered, I agree that's something I shoulda fixed but nothing a little cropping out just a little of the left side of the photo won't fix.

    Thanks for all the comments and critiquing so far everyone!

    Nice shot, I like the funnel effect of the flash.
