    Thanks Travis. It was the symmetry of the image that attracted me to taking its picture.

    Nice! Just a suggestion - crop from bottom left to waist level? I find the legs in particular draw the eye away from the diagonal hand-rod alignment.

    Ahhhhhhhh. After viewing this photo several times, seeing Travis's comment makes me finally realize why it doesn't work for me. It's the man's bare legs that are asymmetrical because the girl's legs are fully clothed. If you crop at the bottom to eliminate his bare legs, everything becomes symmetrical and, as Paul mentioned, the great diagonal lines of the fishing rods are emphasized. I just love diagonals, so I don't like when anything detracts from them.

    I think that this is a very lucky young lady...

    As I view this photo I cannot help but think how happy many marriages are when both partners share the same interests. IMO, A wife could be a lot happier sharing fishing time with her husband, rather than sitting at home waiting for him to come back from fishing...

    The same is true about photography and many other hobbies that can take a man away from his home...

    A great marriage should be based on friendship and mutual interests as well as love and sex...

    Mike and Paul, here's the image without legs. What do you think?

    Notwithstanding Mike's comments, I like the uncropped version better.

    I was thinking of a far less aggressive crop, Karm. Consider trying a crop that is just barely above the bottom of the man's shorts. You might prefer the resulting aspect ratio for this image style.

    I think this is much better! And it brings attention to their faces as well. If I was picky, I'd like to see a bit more space to the right of her rod tip - but unless you've cropped already, I guess it's probably too late for that suggestion. (you could fake it in PS.

    Paul, I agree. I do have the original non cropped version. I'll need to redevelop the image. In the future, I'll take another swipe at this image with your suggestion.
