The foreground, generally depicted in darker hues, "which serves to enhance and draw the attention of the viewer to the center," where Broders depicts a town or a village. "The background . . . represents the mountains, which draws upwards the gaze of the viewer" (Perry / Broders p.11). These three elements combine to create a formidable sense of depth perception.
