The Challenge for November 18 ~ Symmetry ~
Symmetry.
This is our challenge for November 18. So .... what is it?
The balance of design elements where one side equals another.
Balanced visual weight in the photo.
The effect of an evenly balanced arrangement of visual information, such as patterns, on either side of a central division.

Whew!! So what does all that mean?

Here is a great article on Symmetry by Jim Zuckerman.


And go here for more examples of excellent symmetry in photography.

Love those dogs, Ann! Naturally. Isn't the viking boat absolutely one of the most gorgeous things ever? I saw it long ago and that's what I thought.

Ginny said...

Are the cute dogs for sale and each one is different? And what is the huge black thing? A sail? an unnamed work of art?

Ann, your Viking Shot in the Oslo Museum is an amazing symmetry shot...well done. As for your turtle question...I shot it just as you saw it...belly up! I don't mess with Mother Nature, so I left it just as it was...quite dead, I'm sure. Thanks for visiting!
