Focal Point: At the double

There is a lot of complementary composition happening in this image by staff photographer Sarah Dea. In the centre we have two men, one on the phone looking stern, the other smiling. To the right we have two more men, one looking at his phone, the other smiling at the camera. But a third pairing, the two bicycles on the left, also help completes a two-by-two-by-two triangle of composition, which brings the viewer’s eye back to the subjects in the centre.
