Nice shot. How did you light that to get the black background?

Thanks for the good comment. That is just luck really. Natural, low-angle daylight just before sunset and the bkg is the wood fence in my yard that got thrown into the shade. I did darken it a bit in post but otherwise a straight shot.

Wow - I have to use strobes to get that affect, and you got it in natural light. Well done.
