Hi Daniel,

Now in this one, the subject being centered works fine, I think, with the vertical format. The actual subject is not the figure, though, but the terminal tackle spinning above his head and the line hanging from his left hand. This is a great silhouette. Did you color the background, or color the foreground? Not that it makes a big difference, as photographically it is really nice, but I often find that you either have to darken the subject or color the background to get this effect.

Anyway, I like it, good job!

Hi Daniel, nice capture of action silhouette. Like the orange color. POV and vertical composition is attractive. TFS - Regards - Adil.
