Default In Love in Montana

I got this yesterday afternoon on a shoot. I like it a lot, but I am not sure about the angle. Any advice would be great!

OK, there are a few things that would really help this image out next time (if there is a next time - hopefully).

As you note the angle isn't good. I would for this sort of shot shoot it straight so need rotating back to the right.

I like that you don't have them centred but you've cropped the feet and also have the line of the hills cutting through the head, I would have positioned yourself either a bit higher of found an angle where you don't have this happening.

If you posed this then pretty much always get the woman's head to the camera side, especially if she is shorter than the man. As we can see here her face is in a lot of shadow, also usually the woman is prettier

The final part of the puzzle is post production I've done a quick edit to show the sort of impact you could get.

Last question, what is the hole in her back just below her elbow?

i think that hole is just where the shirt folds inward (because the man's hands are pulling in taught) and she is just that skinny. everywhere else the shirt is hanging looser.
