You're right. She's wrong.
Yes! Take that honey.
You flopped the axis though. I don't know if that bothers you.
Hmmm. The axis isn't supposed to be flopped here, but it certainly reads that way. I wonder if it has to do with his placement in the previous frame.
I think that with the figure lower in the frame, it suggests his attention would go away from the picture frame as he turns his head up.
If I can establish the previous shot as more of a POV from the giant, I think it'll feel more like a punch in, than a jump over the axis.
