Smile Cracked

Cracked is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at Hopeland Gardens in Aiken, SC. I liked the desiccated, abstract feel as well as the nearly grayscale color palette. This is the first in a sub-collection I refer to as stump art as I discovered it on the surface of a stump.

Had you not told me, I would still have guessed what it was, hence your image did not stump me.

I liked the photo but was wondering how it would look if you reversed it by 180 so that the crack goes up from left to right.

Would that be a vertical or horizontal flip (mirror reflection)? Even though either will make the main crack run from the lower left to the upper right, the horizontal flip leaves the narrrow end of the main crack at the bottom of the image, while the vertical flip puts the wide end at the bottom left.
