  1. L1 establishes the thematic context while the riveting image, fishermen "tugging"/
    "the horizon," in Ls 2&3 enhances the theme and tone.

    A day's hard work is vividly portrayed through Carl's effective use of the cinematic technique (of the "extreme long shot") and of a concrete action verb.
