I think the point of this image is being missed. Of course, that's not the fault of the viewer, but the image that is not communicating well.
The affluence I'm featuring here is the house with the window with the incredible view. The window and window seat serve as a frame for the image, but they are also the subject of the image.
This is a double illustration, because the affluent view is of an affluent beach home. Ergo both beach homes are examples of affluence.
The problem seems to be that in their effort to identify the affluence, the viewers are frustrated by not seeing more of the house across the river.
I am totally annoyed with myself for not noticing that the horizon is off kilter. I was so concentrated on the lines of the window and side of the house, that I didn't notice the horizon. And slanted horizons are one of my big pet peeves. :(
