Well, airfrog and I both like it, so it must have something going for it. :-)

Composition. There's no center of interest. Ordinarily that'd be a fault, but it isn't one here. The object of greatest attention, initially, is the cross, for symbolic reasons and because it's lighter than its surroundings and it's made of straight lines. But it's almost at the edge! OMG, it broke a rule! If that isn't bad enough, the cross is facing out of the picture! Ooh, this image is in bad trouble now! And look at all the crooked things standing at skewed angles!

I get why you're ambivalent about it. What's important, though, is that my gaze stays inside it and keeps going around. Those skewed angles really work.


Yet when I look at that image, the big upthrusting tombstone on the left initially draws my attention, then I follow down the diagonal down, and the cross then arrests my view before it runs off the right hand side. At least that is how I see it when I look at it. But then I have zero formal training in art or art appreciation. maybe even worse I am an engineer, and sometimes that lack of formal language within the arts is a handicap.

Beautiful shot. Very 'Middle Earth' like :-)

Many thanks! I should have said in the post, but this is the South Rim trail in Big Bend National Park. Ridiculously hard land, all around.

From the most recent wedding I shot. I just love the emotion I feel when looking at this image between the bride and her father.
