A small girl is transfixed at the edge of a pool at the National Gallery of Victoria: pure white china bowls, floating on a blue pool are slowly circulating and when they hit each other it sounds like windchimes.

Magical. This needs the height, to balance the downcast gaze. Creative use of portrait.

Thank you Danial. The crop was tricky to keep a reasonable aspect ratio but only the few simple elements.

Thank you Nathan - I had to go to ahigh point to get the downward angle, and I was lucky there were no other figures in the frame Smile

Thank you Moira, I had not thought too much about the why height was needed, but you have made me understand it better - it is vertical nature of the figure and the expanse that the child is not looking at that balances the image. I tried to get as much pool in as possible without showing any more edges. Thank you, I appreciate your analysis very much.
