BRUEGHEL, Jan the Elder (1568 - 1625)
River Landscape with Lumbermen
I think there is a slight yellow tint, but overall the colours seem very realistic - even the greens!
And so removing some of that tint and setting the full tonal range, we get...
Now I believed that the above covers the compositional analysis/elements, but I received the following comment on what I was trying to do.
"Really, as I look at your pages; most of what you are covering is composition. Light / dark patterns, leading lines, Rule of Thirds, Golden Curve, S curves, Texture, Contrast, Lighting, Color Contrast, Action etc. are all parts of the composition of the image. It is the combination of these elements that make the image or break it..."
Hmm, I have either misunderstood composition, or I'm breaking it down into smaller elements. A picture/painting must have more to it than just composition - I'm ignoring the subject details, because that is too subjective and I can not learn, or improve my photography, by analysing the subject matter. This is especially true with landscapes as I very rarely take them, as most of my photography is within a mile of the house!
Still lets plough on (in ignorance)...
