@MichaelD,... Valet parking persian style!
@shahin How many changes did you bring in to the photo when composing the work?
I think the final composition is sublime... to me it is beautiful and meaningful.
it tells both a visual and a cognitive story, in complete harmony... an integrated whole if you will... the abstract form of the road leads off into the corner suggesting movement, however the form of the old lady interrupts it bringing it to a halt which matches what seems to be happening in the piece... a woman on a journey coming to a momentary halt... to stoop and address forms which are stationary, and blocked, visually and conceptually from the movement and the path. But there is a short connecting form on the bottom left, a way for the forms to get to and move along the path...
She older than he, knows the path better. Is she imparting some wisdom? She stoops to address him... (she higher in the work than he)... as a parent would stoop or crouch to instruct their child with benevolence. Where is his path?
The tree is life, life in a desolate landscape, it ascends and bursts with color in contrast to its surroundings, both visually and conceptually. The path she is on would then seem to be a path of Life itself. Is she on the right path...? Taking but a moment help a younger fellow traveler? Will he follow? We see that there is a way that he can.
If the photo had all these elements in it ... bravo to the photographer (whomever it was.. you?)... if not bravo to your composition, it is visually and conceptually ...
