I just find this one to be a pleasant and calming composition. Perhaps this is partly because it resembles an abstract, rainy landscape–cloudy sky above, earthy slope below.
In black and white, it loses the landscape feel, but gains some distance from its earthiness so you can more easily enjoy the textures without distraction.

Yes, I flipped it. It improved the mood. Otherwise, this is right out of the box.
