Shhh! Hear It?

Consonance versus dissonance - is the struggle composers do when they're working to create a harmonic support to a melody that's pleasant yet just sufficiently unbalanced to be interesting.

In this visual triad I've combined texture and classic composition together within a clash of reds, yellows and greens to stage the startling fortissimo of a Wellfleet sunrise. Now, if I can only learn to hold my camera straight... I'd resolve this thing on a much happier note.

Seriously, "harmony" comes from the Greek word, harmonia, which means "fastening" or "to join." If I did this image correctly, the cant to this thing reinforces the way I've tried to balance the dissonant elements. Does it sing?
