I'm not sure what is meant by above comment. Picture is vertical. You can see pedestrians and a truck on road in lower right.

I probably should explain why I said it makes it look rotated. It is an established fact amongst those who study such things, that if the edges of a frame, window, painting, photo are broader on one side the human eye/mind considers that to be the prime orientation, the direction of which is broadside to broadside.. Think about it. What accentuates the efect with this picture is that all major lines are parallel to those two broad sides, and if it was actually landscape orientation the flags would be waving from left to right. Yes, upon closer examination the proper orientation is perceived, but that is a second opinion in the minds eye.

Now does that have a thing to do with the artists choice of orientation, or frames, or preference for Fruit Loops for breakfast? Nope. Just a bit of esoterica to be tucked away or thrown away.

It's beautiful and very painterly, but almost appears to be painted on a stone surface. I wish you'd tell me/us what you did here. I can't figure it out.
