The image is taken from a low hill in the eastern foothills of the Alsace. We are looking into the valley which goes up again on the other side. The complete image not only shows the valley but also the landscape beyond the next hill (see small image).
By cropping the image and removing the landscape beyond the next hill the image gets less depth and gets a more graphical style, with strong lines and a limited color palette. The cool distant landscape disappears and what remains are the warm Autumn colors.
No matter where you start, you will always follow the lines of the grapes and end at the trees in upper middle of the image.
