Life's a Drag

This is a funny kinda shot. It's got the lamp slap-bang in the middle with the right side packed and the left side empty. It's maybe not an ideal composition but for one thing I didn't have much choice after the fact, and also I kind of like it.

There is the long shadow zooming out the the bottom left corner echoing the girl's right crossed-over leg pointing out to the right.

I also like the unposed, 'reportage' feel to the shot, with the guy taking a drag and the girl looking down.

And of course there is that classic, stunning view behind them, which is a bit strange, because they are facing away from it!

I like it also even though, or perhaps in spite of, the "rule of thirds."

I think what gives it balance is the long shadow from the light fixture.
