I love beach/sand/seashell abstracts.
Few ever get printed, but these are for me.
These usually have no reference point- there is no "correct" orientation.
I was amazed at this one- and how it changed its look and meaning with different rotations.

Rotated 90 and feels so different, more dynamic.

Rotate another 90 clockwise and this is just wrong. Too much motion coming right to left. Not sure why this is so different to me.

Rotate another 90 and this is much more stationary.

I usually turn these around to see what works, but his one changed more than most.
Me, number 1 and 2 work, 3 is just wrong. I learn new things everyday.

I like #4 also ..............but I would lose some of the white at the top in #2 - and off the bottom in #4.

Nice demo.

You are used to reading from left to right so probably it's the reason that #3 looks odd to you. Traditional Chinese is from right to left so it's quite okay to me.

That is very interesting to me. Does make sense.
It certainly does/should remind me that different cultures/educations/societies can look at art (and many other things) differently.
The white top and bottom also was a distraction in the vertical rotations, but not as much in the horizontal ones.
I love images that teach me something.
I am actually working on a print that has this image in 3 or all 4 of the different rotations- all on the same large print. Still playing.
