The Maine Coon lends a wonderful sense of scale to the bridge, and brings action and life into the picture as the main subject.
All vertical lines are perfectly straight and correctly aligned, and even if the lens we used was wide - this was treated as an architectural shot with absolutely zero distortion on any axis.
While we used a strobe on him to give light on his face and body, since the sun is behind him, he still has a stunning highlight on his back from the actual sun - in which case it worked perfectly as a natural rim light to create this effect.
The light hits the walkway in the forest, and fades slowly right before him, but continues in front of him due to the shape of the bridge. It gives it a nice color and atmospheric contrast. We also have some light filtering through the bridge to illuminate the small but steady falls below.
