Very graphical and striking. My first move was to rate as 2 TU. However, the very good idea has not been executed to its full potential - the image composition is weak and not complete. The three poles are not enough to balance white space, Cropping (left&top) may help. I would also like to see more space behind the figures. Leo

I see the 3rd person. The idea here is good but the moment is not decisive. It would be succesful if the fishermen were separated and if their poles were completed in the composition. The silhouette is well done.

This looks more a graphic art than a photo. I can't really make out whether those lines are fishing poles or cables. There are three lines, but I see only two persons. I think either you have one, where all three lines converge, or all three of them.

Sorry, it is a very confusing image to me.

Nice and original black and white silhouette. More space on the right would had gave more balance to spaces. Well done, regards, Carlo.
