Ironically, this photo reminded me of my freshman year Design Class. One of our first classes, we learned about the importance of the placement of a line. A line being off-centered and diagonal is a much more interesting photo than of a line centered and being placed perfectly vertical.
This, however, is not the only reason why I like this photo. I am a big fan of texture. The texture of the ground reminds me of the marks left from the bristles of a paintbrush on a canvas.
