Awesome picture! Truly outstanding composition and processing. It would be great if you could share a few details about how it was taken and processed.

Thanks much Robert. This is a single hand held shot - had to crop since it was an unplanned scene. Took a series of images to ensure I get at least one sharp shot. Background is natural grass. Lighting was using hot shoe flash mounted with a custom built diffuser. Processing is in LR mostly (texture, clarity, dehaze, slight color adjustment - yellow and greens, and healing for a couple lens spots and distracting spots on subject). Used PS to manage noise and sharpness only. Appreciate your interest. Cheers!

I am in awe! Thanks for the details. Bob :-)
