    dramatic composition

    Ralph Stevens’s bold use of sculptural succulents for the Tremaine Garden still feels completely modern, fifty years later. His dramatic composition of various succulents and Korean grass (Zoysia tenuifolia) shows how much impact can be made with a focused plant palette.

    This caption is describing the picture I have uploaded.

    How can I interpret “dramatic” here? Does it mean the contrast is striking? Click image for larger version.

    Re: dramatic composition

    It doesn't mention a contrast, so you can't draw that conclusion. A dramatic composition is one which evokes an emotional response — at least in the person writing the description.
