Hmm. Nice quality photo. I really like the idea, the set is fine and all the apparell look pretty good, but there are 2 things especially that bugs me, If you allow a bit of constructive criticism.

1. A common mistake when I look at any material including shooting with a bow (or pretending to do so) is that the arrow always leaves from the thumb side of the bow, even though it should be at the other side. Like I said, a common mistake that is seen even in quality films! And it's pretty much a thing you don't end up thinking too much about.

2. A much more minor detail is the elbow of the pulling hand. It's way easyer to hold the string back when you keep the elbow pretty much level with the arrow (as you have it quite low at least in a few of the pictures I looked at) and it just looks unprofessional and makes one look like not even trying properly.

If you get the chance, try correcting those two and compare the results for yourself.

And how do I know these? Because I have practiced archery for a few years... the info is not a secret... just gotta talk to people who know the things.

That's about it. I don't mean to offend anyone or anything. These things just catch the eye. Like I said, the idea is very good. Keep it up!
