Gabrielle posted a question a while back, and in summary, she wanted to know why an image she found on the net "sort of comes towards you".
You can find the image online at http://www.pbase.com/image/75217819
I think the image is strong due to the prominence of the foreground and the lines that lead the viewer’s eye toward the horizon. The fact that some of the lines converge seem to add to the impact. From a technical point of view, I think the wide angle lens, sharp interesting foreground, and horizon at the upper thirds line also contributes to this wonderful image.
If there are any artists reading that can give us some more insight, please do leave a comment with your thoughts!
