An attempt to improve on my horizontal compositions. I do not regard myself to be very good when it comes to capturing candid moment in Landscape crops compared to how confident I am with my portrait crops. This has a lot to do with the way the human being is structured! We stand in a vertical way and the whole world is designed with that in mind. Horizontally it's a lot different.

In this shot I think the backdrop is my saviour here. Without it I don't think this composition would have worked in this manner.

composition seems just fine... what makes this shot, as usual, is the wonderful toning...
