    Humm, I had to look it up, contrapposto:an asymmetrical arrangement of the human figure in which the line of the arms and shoulders contrasts with while balancing those of the hips and legs. Possibly it applies in nature? Or the definition is too narrow, contrasting with the context, without giving a sufficient description.

    It seemed like a good a title as any..I was really trying to find something more musically related as I think there is a nice harmony to the image when I remembered this term from my art classes in college...if you look at the David, you will see how this term could also be applied to nature.
