| p.1 #4 · p.1 #4 · Not sure if this one works - beach landscape |
What I'd suggest for this one is a very literal application of the "rule of thirds" to make the sky, water, and beach all equal widths, to the extent possible, turning it into more of an abstract impressionist interpretation of the balance of land / sea / sky...
Printed about 30" wide and viewed from across the room all you'd see is the color bands, as if a child had drawn land, sea and sky. Then on closer inspection you'd see the detail in the sand, sea, and sky — all random — an finally notice the one thing out of place: the ship on the horizon.
What will make all that work is balancing the three elements with the crop.
The horizon is level in the shot you posted. The beach isn't because beaches slope. The fact the waves are breaking at the opposite angle exaggerate the slope of the beach in the opposite direction. But that works in a good way here. The horizon is the constant in the background to the subtle ying/yang battle of sea vs. land in the foreground.
