This image struck me as a complete presentation of characters and setting that awaits each viewer’s imagination to play out a story line. The balance of figures created a perfect triangle joined at the base by the horse and rider, a critical moment for the shutter to be snapped. The young woman in the foreground acts as a pivot and when a line is drawn from her to the fence in the background it creates an excellent leading line to bring the eye into and through the image. All in all, a wonderful blend of composition, content, and invitation to narrative.

The powerful presence and amazing design of these sailboats is in full display in this well-crafted image, enhanced by a composition that fills and dominates the frame with the group of boats, The play of light reveals every seam of the sails set against a variegated sky, and the strong color and tonal control blends water, wake, sky and sailboats to create a vivid impression that engages the viewer with a dynamic sense of visual presence.

This setting evokes a de Chirico urban landscape with the massive columnar forms on the right and the strong horizontal lines of the steps jutting into infinity, all of which is offset by the azure blue sky and figures moving through space. The two figures in the distant center create a small vertical offset while the runner bounding up the steps in the right foreground makes for a dynamic counterpoint with implied motion and energy that balances, enlivens and humanizes the scene.

This intriguing image superimposes a transparent three-dimensional form over a winter landscape. The effect is strengthened by the counterplay of the rotation of the form, which reveals its 3D character that offsets the “flat” and strongly horizontal base image. Tones and colors are muted, while the two elements are both composed in thirds, making for a thoughtful, balanced and ultimately restful composition.
