We are taught in art classes that composition is the skeleton holding our pictures together. The viewer's eyes should move around the page, first from the primary subject, onto the next important and so on. Often, three stops are the goal with the tour taking in the complete landscape along its way .
This photo achieves the edict well. First we see lovely Chandra in the foreground. Then our eye is drawn almost beyond our control to the small figure in the background as we wonder what emotion has her in its grasp. Lastly the microphone brings us back to the foreground, completing the journey.
