Bill, the whites of the eyes of the girl on the left really pop. That shot remains one of my favorite people shots you have posted ...

Next series all shot within 10 minutes, took a walk around the block with an eye out for Figurative Symmetry.

FAIL: looking for a plane or bird to break it up, maybe someone's silhouette in the foreground - lost patience..


Color Symmetry


Smoking Permitted













These folks asked why I wanted their picture, and when I responded I was looking for Figurative Symmetry, they gave me a quizzical look and introduced me to their newborn child.






A crop of the bridge shows more figurative symmetry

i always come into these chats late and by Page Three the topic has gone from tomatos to oil filters. but symmetry and compostition... where is the tension in symmetry? i had a painting teacher in art school in the 60s who said, 'symmetry is safe.' who wants to be safe? safe is the new beige.

this thread is precisely about that kind of symmetry that produces tension. you might want to read the opening post.
also, symmetry is a no-no for loads of people, especially in photography. but it's not that simple, really. AND, symmetry is not = symmetry

Right, Simon.
That shot I posted of the the green framing on the side of a house trailer is as symmetrical as I could shoot it and crop it, keeping in mind the scraggly little forsythia shrub, shadows, and two vertical lines of rivets would provide tension ...
