~sticmann's challenge Composition and Lifeguard tower...and this is what I thought of. XD

40 min. Still not doing well on keeping to the time limit of 30.

The shrinking world is probably of greater concern than that shark :D

Yes the composition is unbalanced, as Bwana said. The tower and book are falling off the edge. That's not always bad, but there isn't anything on the other side to even it out. The swimmer and shark draw attention, but aren't weighty enough to balance the picture.

Argh, 30min doesn't give me enough time to DO anything more. Defeated by Time! What could I have added to balance it without losing the focus? Or would a different perspective have been the way to go? I see what you're saying but don't know how I could have avoided it. :shrug: Ah well, maybe next time.

I think a different layout altogether. I'm not skilled enough to see how to balance this one.
Yes, next time :)

That would be me if I were a lifeguard.

:laughing: funnily enough I had thought of doing something along similar lines for mine...lifeguard chatting up beach bunny, while people were drowning in background. :D
I might have pushed the hand and book to the right a third of the image along to stop the image from feeling cut off on that side, but the soon to be food swimmer is definitely the focus here.

I had it farther over, but then it just looked disembodied. :dead: Your idea would have been great too, but there's no way I could get all that in a half hour!
