What makes this photography good in my opinion is the colors mainly. The first thing that pops out is the luminescent purple, blue and orange and the white rocks. Then you realize that the photo can't speak to that only if it was mainly focused on the right side. Its whats on the left that adds the contrast, the location, the focused but less vibrant sunset with the fog rolling in. Then there's "type diagonal" with the diagonal line with the highway which also acts like a divider between the two parts of the photo. The photo also tells a story as the highway goes from the fore ground to the background of the image leading your eyes front to back. On top of that there are layers in play with the flowers and rocks to the right, the smaller plants to the left, then the road, and then some more shrubs. Then a layer of flat grass land and the ocean and the fog and sunset are different layers. All the way the back the mountains are either a layer or just act as a background. I would actually think that the mountains have their own layers going with one layer in front of the fog and one layer behind it. Lastly the All Encompassing Shot couldn't have been takes without considering the Rule of Thirds in mind. The closeup on the right with the rocks and flowers are facing into the image, with a 2/3 to 1/3rd split to the right and a 1/3 to 2/3rd split from the top. I choose to believe that this is a "good" shot that uses many compositional techniques.
