Thanks, when we were talking backstage before the shoot he was telling me he wanted to do a "Die, rodent, DIE!" pose, so I'm guessing this was it =D

Well, he pulled off the pose perfectly! I'm sure the mice in my basement are quivering in their boots :giggle:

Very nice picture! I would nevertheless try to bright it up a bit. Bravo!

Point taken; I've uploaded an updated version. As clarification though the original version more accurately represents the deep blue colour of the sky at the time I took it.

MUCH better now! I would apply a bit of sharpness, though.

Never forget that what your eyes have seen at the moment of the shot and what the sensor of your camera has decided to represent can be astonishingly different! So some correction in post-production are often inevitable, even if/because you want to reproduce the light/atmosphere/sensation as close as possible to what was the reality. Ciao
