When you focus in on one area, one detail, you create a sense of mystery. When the context is lost, color information is taken away, the image becomes more about the design elements... line, form, value. What is this? You might wonder. Or you may just sit back and enjoy the light and the lines, moving through the space in a pleasant way.
I enjoyed ~mimo~'s image below for the same reason. The focus on detail, to the exclusion of context, adds a bit of mystery. If she didn't tell me in the title, I'd never know what this was. It's pure shape, line and form, and it's pleasing on its own. I like seeing the world this way.
