This quite extraordinary image certainly gives a sense of the big country and thereby gives a great sense of place. It is extraordinary because as a single image it probably would not amount to much, and the outside ones with the white vignette do not amount to anything themselves. Altogether though, it is very compelling. A major factor in its success is the tonal values and the surround which contains the eye within the frame.
