I'm uncertain about the graphics…suspecting they should not be the main story. Your thoughts?


Sal, see if -

1. b.w conversion

2. left rotation (portrait) 90 degrees

3. an optional horizontal flip (mirror image)

4. small crop down to the top of the head.

makes for a stronger image closer to how you saw the shot?

for me, it brings your shadows to the fore and allows the lines of plank/rod to do what they do best ...graphically move attention through the frame from dark bottom to bright top.

...as a bonus you then have a comfortable arc of plank - person - fishing rods - bird sign.

A "story" isn't at all needed... but you do need a subject.
