Southport couple – Photo by Rob Laynton

Opportunistic shot of this couple sitting on the sea wall at Southport. Another minimalistic shot that just caught my eye. All the elements are important: the wall, the fence, the curve of the road, the yellow road beacon, and of course the couple. Because the man is leaning towards his wife, there is a slight sense of urgency, of action in this picture, which helps to make it for me. The main element, the couple, are placed one third in from the right and the horizon is one third up from the bottom. The yellow beacon acts as a counterpoint to the couple and stops the curve of the road from leading the eye out of the picture to the left.
