Flatness and Hierarchy
Above is a really interesting photo that exploits the flatness of the photographic medium to create a scene in our minds that could never exist in reality. A person can't actually hold the sun in their hands, but yet in this image, they appear to be doing just that.
Even though this photo is of one thing, I really like how the different folds of the fungus thing overlap with each other as they move towards the background. There may have been many different angles to take this picture from, but none of them would look exactly like this, having the same orientiation of the objects as this does.
