    "over to the left"

    Does "over to the left" here mean "on the right":

    "Our eye then moves to Sluggo, who is squirting the girl because he is the most active element in the picture, but he is secondary because he is smaller and over to the left of the picture."

    No. "Over to the left" means "on the left"

    Re: "over to the left"

    Mehrdadart, I can think of no situation where a phrase involving "on the left" would mean "on the right", expect possibly the phrases "not on the left" or "the opposite of on the left".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
