The silhouetted nature of this image simplifies this landscape to the viewer's eye. Rather than being overwhelmed with too much detail, the photo conveys a sense of peace at the end of a long day. The gradient in the sky, smooth reflections in the water, and the large dark mountain and river bank shapes have a tranquil feeling that allows the viewer's eye to ease into this image. The water leads the viewer's eye up to the central focal point of the image, Mount Moran. Without much detail this photo says just enough.
