I like the subject, the expression, and the shot. A bit lower perspective might have been better, and I think if you're going to center a subject you really need to make it perfectly in the center.

I would have loved to but I took the chain and tied it to the tree. then neckstrap held I looked set the timer and ran to sit in front of it. But I will try that next time

That bark and root structure is so compelling, frankly I would try to fill the frame with that and place the figure in a way that suggests some more meaningful interaction with the tree.

This shot brings to mind some sort of mystical yoga position! Maybe that would work, you know, with a lower perspective, and with the feet fully inside the frame, shallowish DOF on the subject, with a long lens so that the bark fills the background competely. Then a little vignetting and a contrasty print (maybe lith) and ...baddabing...

Where was this?
