Neither the color, nor the perspective, nor the architecture (doesn’t matter if this IS a real photographic perspective) draws and controls the eye. This is a picture within a picture, and one of them seemingly unnfinished. The eye is not drawn anywhere. Aways the lighting of a scene, at different times of day, makes or breaks a photograph–and is true here in this attempt? Love ‘ya, Maggie. Go to Atlanta.You are the most alive artist I know.
