What i think you should do is extend the right side of the image just a touch and in the background (as you said) put in more abductions… But, have one of the abductions being a girl hanging the clothes on the line and she’s holding onto the line (so it will have an upward bend where the beam is situated) and also have the clothes in the line of the beam upturned as if they are getting sucked up!
When I look at this I just automatically sense the romance of a honeymoon in Hawaii (??)… So I think to capture that feeling more so you must make it seem like a quiet abduction that is not a spectical to the whole community… If you get what I mean!
P.S. (Keep the image simple as I like it the way it is right now!)
