That’s just Diptychical…

One of the most powerful ways to give a flavour of a particular location is to use multiple images from similar points of view, perhaps an enlarged detail section or just different zoom levels. The simplest way to present these is as a diptych – two images side by side. This can present a dramatic contrast between two images or can provide a harmony of two similar perspectives.

In this diptych taken at the Another Place installation on Crosby Beach I’ve used the horizon line as a harmonising element between the two images. The colours are similar, but the perspective is different. For more images please check my Flickr stream or Dune Prints.
