Photography, as well as many art forms, is all about getting an emotional response from your viewers. And here comes this amazing photo! It triggered such strong response in me right away! Technically too the photo is very good. Great compo, excellent contrast and good choice of B&W.
Great great photo, one that will stay etched in my memory for a long time.
