An excellent image, aptly named! Anyone who has ever played FF has to wonder what "resting" must look like for them,... and here it is! I love the sword stuck in the ground behind where it can be reached with a quick back flip,.. just in case!

The photography is good, capturing the vibrant colors of the background landscape & sky. The glare of the sunshine off of Your collar & sleeve is a bit distracting, but not overly so.

The one thing i would have changed would've been to showcase more introspection. Your character looks pensive enough, but in this quiet, still moment, i would have tried to convey more soul searching. Perhaps looking down,... maybe even fiddling with a twig, wildflower or something. I don't consider this portrayal a flaw by any means, I just would've done it differently. In the FF series, there is usually so much at stake that I just think there would be times when the characters would've wished that they had not been chosen, or that they had more choices in their quest, maybe even some regrets. Just my take on it!

Awesome shot! great lighting and photography on both shots. fantastic attention to detail on the sword. Great job! :D

Only critique would be: Could use some bruising/wounds either by make-up or post editing. bruising just adds that final touch of realism to any combat shot for cosplay. :)
