WEEKLY CHALENGE 110: "Symmetry and Patterns"

Post Thu May 17, 2012 6:06 pm


Weekly Challenge: "Symmetry and Patterns"

We are surrounded by symmetry and patterns, both natural and man-made. They can make for very eye-catching compositions, particularly in situations where they are not expected. Another great way to use them is to break the symmetry or pattern in some way, introducing tension and a focal point to the scene.


Here are a few examples:







The symmetry in this image is broken up by the door on the right.

A few simple rules:

1. Themes are posted on Fridays to give you the weekend to come up with a FRESH shot for the challenge to post through Monday.

2. This is about interaction, learning, being challenged and having fun so... HAVE FUN!

3. The themes are specific but interpretations are broad. Stay on theme but PLEASE feel free to think outside the box.

4. Look at others' submissions, comment as moved to do so and offer supportive and constructive feedback. Please don't just post for exposure. Look and at least comment on some.

5. Did we already mention: HAVE FUN!!!


Walter (for Scott and Walter)

P.S. Posting this a day early as I may not have time to do so tomorrow.

I guess you can tell by my SP today I was on your wave length (well patterns anyway). Should be a good one.

Ehm...i already took, YEARS ago the one i was about to go take. Since it would be most likely the same, i dare to submit the years old image i made ;), i will still revisit the train station and IF i replace the image, it will be quite similar if not identical to this one (minus the humans, of course ;) -- Voilà: http://www.pbase.com/ckoi7lumiere/image/84838715 -- Thanks!!

I'm going to stretch the rules a wee bit and submit a photo I shot several days ago. I think it works pretty well for Symmetry & Patterns.
This was taken inside Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida

This is my version of symmetry and patterns. :) I'm just glad to see a coal train. There haven't been a lot and the industry has been laying off due to the mild winter.
