I chose to compose the picture in this way because the manmade structure I took a picture of was rather simple, and so I wanted the composition using dots and lines to be simple, as well. While the vertical stand of the object was to the left in the original picture I took, I chose to invert it and put the vertical line to right in the composition, for placing the line on the left made the composition look like it was going to fall over towards the right side, just as Arnheim suggested in our reading of pictures from “left to right.” Furthermore, following Arnheim’s suggestions for balance, I chose to make the horizontal line thin so that it didn’t make the picture top-heavy and have the dots balance the horizontal line out. The dots also create a slight movement downwards that represents the hanging jewelry in my manmade structure.
