Except there’s a young woman, instead of an old man. Still, I like the contemplating setting of this shot. My wife and I were on a short hike in Sydney, when we reached the sea. It had been a long time since we’d seen such a vast amount of water and we just stared for a few minutes. Where the rule of third usually makes for better shots, I do like this composition with the subject being centered.
