The rim lighting on the silhouette of the baboon is fantastic, Marc - but its the continuation along that bottom line that really makes this one so special for me!  Brilliantly done, and I absolutely love it.  Well Done!!!!  :)

Many thanks for the positive comments folks!
Carol: Having the rim lighting continue along that fallen tree gives an important context, and appreciative  you picked up on that.

Cheers
