First of all let me say I think this is a successful pic, no doubt it works and works well. It is...on the extreme side no doubt, that is to say both in terms of extreme wode angle (I would guess at the 16mm edge of your zoom, and extreme in tilt which compounds the overall effect.. I would say this is probably at the limit of what would be comfortable for the eye to watch. DYnamism is there in spades, the feeling of something being cocked, like a gun..........and then RELEASED. Frankly the burned highlights are there but they do not trouble me, it is a function of the light and sometimes, just like flare, it can be an advantage, or at least an acceptable feature of the whole.
Takeaway for all of us: how to work the shot, find the angle, even if it means crouching down near the ground and shooting up. Funnily these little digicams with flippable, rotating LCDs are very handy for this...

The tilt already creates plenty of dynamism, the punch only enhances this. A new Lumpini star is born:)

Slightly overexposed glove, true. Unfortunate but not a deal breaker for me

Je trouve que le tilt donne beaucoup de dynamisme ici, je suis ok avec stig, le blanc du gant droit est trop flash? qu'en penses tu? et le pied derrière me dérange un peu.
ce n'est que mon humble avis!

You've got some real nice perspective here, Simon. I thought she was throwing the tire. The tilt, her expression and the movewment work to your advantage as well. The only thing that bothers me, though, is the love is a little overexposed. A bit more colour would have been better I think.
