:When I first stumbled across this photograph, the first thing that really struck me was the sheer scale of the subject against the towering and menacing backdrop. Its a David and Goliath kind of story. One about someone who's up against some big opponents but is determined to beat them, no matter how difficult it may be. The shadow thats coming from the subject may be a small part of the frame, but it's such wonderful and mesmerising element that adds a sense of playfulness to a rather dark image. That shadow single handedly propelled this photo to the top of my list. The foresight from the photographer, the excellent framing, the timing and the story that they have created is masterful. Well done!
