the poor thing! You should put this in the b+w monthly competition. It's contrasty, sharp, with loads of depth of field and an appealing subject. You can get rid of the comment by re-loading the photo and overwriting, or loading it again with a slightly different name.

Great composition, but quite many of your photos are overexposed in some places as this one is. Is B&W just rescueing color picture? Without burning whites a winner IMO.
