How should I refer to someone in a photograph with language? I know expressions like "the second girl on the right", but what should I say about "the first girl to the right"? Does "rightmost" sound natural?
Let's say you have 5 people in a row:
Person 1 - Person 2 - Person 3 - Person 4 - Person 5
Then I would say it this way:
Person 1 is the person on the left.
Person 2 is the second person from the left.
Person 3 is the third person from the left (or right).
Person 4 is the second person from the right.
Person 5 is the person on the right.
Some people would also say "The girl on the very right" to emphasize, especially if there are many people in the photo. This means roughly the same thing as rightmost and could also be used if you wanted to say something like "I was on the very edge of the cliff" to say that you were especially close to the edge.
