I arranged it from 3 diff. photo's; the fishsellers were on the market and saw me take some shots [talked to them and even emailed this to him because he liked the idea], the fisherman caught that fish but in another shot so I just let the fish fly as if it hangs on the line [there is no line].

Fabulous idea! A little dark, but still gave me quite a giggle when I saw that fish dangling there.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

The B&W tones are great. I do like the concept but the composition just needs a little more for the concept to really shine. The scene is a little too busy and there are three simple things that could have been done to make it less so and get the idea to 'shine'. First off, remove the two white buckets out of the frame. The bright white contrasts so strongly with all the darker tones that they serve as a distraction from what you want your audience to notice - the man with the fishing pole. Second, the caught fish needs to be bigger, higher up on a blank portion of the wall, and perhaps a type with coloration that has greater contrast when converted to B&W. As it is now the fish is so small that it took a second hard look for me to spot it. Lastly, I think a square crop might have worked better to instantly get the audience to focus on your main subjects and get rid of the distracting elements on either side of the photo as it is now. Square crop could have the man on the left edge/side of the frame while the right edge/side had the end of the pole and the fish on it.

Mmmm, I miss my "lekkerbekkies" very much, such delicious food. And a great way to catch them. Great image.

Can't go wrong with a fishing shot.
This is clever, funny and fits the challenge to a "T".
You know I voted this high.

Hahahaha! Love it. The expression on the vendors' vaces makes me wonder if this is even a composite!
