Concepts: Frame shape (vertical subjects in a horizontal frame); Muted colours (subtlety)

Description: The top-line of the hedges enclosing the Isolotto lead the eye to the off-centre placement to the 16th century Fountain of Oceanus (Giambologna). The background of trees with their silvery bark add muted contrast and interest on a cloudy winter's afternoon, giving this image a contemplative feel. The image was cropped to emphasise its horizontality.

Title: Winter Oceanus
