The Great Wall of China Here there is an illusion of depth and space. The first thing aiding this effect is the angling of the buildings. Secondly the eventually intercept of the two streets at a vertex creates the distance in the photo. In this photograph lines are present in the outlines of the trees. Lines are also in the spaces between the trees as well. Both form vertical lines. The arcs in this picture are in the shape of semi-circles. The reflection of the arcs in the water creates the geometric shape of a circle. The overall bridge forms the shape of a rectangle. The majority of main colors are present here. However there are three dominant colors. The first color is the blue of the sky. Second is the blue-green of the water. The last color is the green of the trees. In this photo because of the atmospheric perspective the mountains have different values. The further the mountains are the lighter the value. The nearer the mountains are the greener and darker the value. The jagged surface of the rock in this photograph produces a very rough texture. The color of the rock because of its similarity to rust suggests a dry texture. In addition the warmth of the red-orange color makes the viewer "feel" that the environment is hot. The "tattoos" on the subject's face are consistently repetitive. Each of the flower are identical. These combined produce a pattern. Underlying the "tattoos" is a light grid which is a patten in it of itself. This picture is symmetrical in that the center of arch is right in the top-middle. The three flags underneath the arc are evenly spaced in the bottom-center. If split in the middle the left side of the picture would look very similar to the right side. This photo demonstrates a small part of the Great Wall of China. The wall is made up of many individual parts, mostly individual bricks, that are all different but similar in shape and size. The parts all come together to make one unified wall. In this city variety is most obvious in the buildings. The buildings differ in size as some are bigger or smaller than others. They differ in shape as some are the traditional rectangle and others are more abstract. They differ in color as some are black, white or even red. Here, the rolling movement of the waves are caught before they dissipate along the shore.

In addition there is an implied movement. The eye naturally follows along the edge of the water along the shore line. The emphasis,i.e. the focus, here is unmistakeably the skeleton of the dinosaur. First the skeleton is the largest item in the photo. Secondly the skeleton is in the center. Lastly the skeleton is the only darkness in the photo as the surrounding area is mostly white. The poles here are assumed by the viewer to be identical. Because of this the proportion of the different poles does not indicate size. Rather the proportions indicate the different distances and locations. Because you can see more than one face of the dice here, the dice are not merely flat. Instead the dice pop out of the screen in three-dimensional cubes. The slight downward angle also helps in this effect. Rhythm is created here by the repeated ripples in the water. The steady horizontal lines on the two sides of the boat create a slow soothing "beat". In addition the value in the picture draw the eye towards the bottom and slowly brings it up to the top.
