Very strange POV, he looks like a giant compared to her!

Oh boy. It was intentional. The native 3:2 would minimize the "giant" effect, but I wanted to emphasize it with the 1:1 ratio (for the reason that you mentioned below)

This matches well the fact e seems to be some sort of mentor / guide / teacher.

Yes. He is holding her back.shoulder with his left hand. She is attentively listening to him (Full disclosure: I did not see all of this happening when I took the shot). The POV renders a sense of protection (from the photographer!) of him for her.

Great b&W as always.

Thank you, ER. Much appreciated.
