I think the composition is good. I like it. But would like to see the shot composed as the previous poster said, also.

Hi John, I like the picture just the way it is. Very artistic simple and gives a story. Lighting is lovely how it fell on the whole pic. I'm sure you were happy with it.

Yup. It's a keeper exactly the way it is. It says just the right amount. Good job.

The composition is great, no need for the whole body. The foreground is distracting though.

I like it. Its about fishing not a portrait of a little girl. You don't need the etire figure to illustrate the act of fishing. In fact in this case it would probably distract from the intent. I'd leave as is good job.

Nice shot, I like the color treatment. I would like to see it as a vertical with her whole body in the frame though.

Original !!!!! Its so much stronger and again the image is about the act of fishing, the verb not the noun or the obvious. The second image is the obvious and what most would do. The first image you posted is beyond the obvious and therefore a much stronger image.
