Sunset photo with a powerful design. Its steep diagonal Light tone is angled nearly to a vertical. The Dark sea foreground acts as the horizontal to anchor it.
I love this photograph, and had to post it separately from clouds. The drama here is created primarily from the 3 directionals. The Most dominant being the steep diagonal band of light from the top down to nearly the bottom.
Hints of vertical are within this diagonal, especially towards the bottom part. Lovely horizontal layers of clouds combined with the strong dark horizontal of the sea complete the design. The tonal values are working magically along with the colours of the sun reflecting onto the cloud layers.
This was taken just down the road from where I teach, Atwell Gallery, Perth Australia.
