Street Symmetry.

Street symmetry

↑Leica Monochrom and Leica 28mm Elmarit ASPH @ f/4.

This is what I’m referring to:

Street symmetry (schematic)

It’s the spontaneous coalescing of disparate elements into a pleasing composition that, for me, makes this interesting.

    Wow. That is a LOT of symmetry! Cool shot…I’m not sure I would have consciously seen it all unless you pointed it out. Well done!

    Hi Peter,

    I love this shot and, intuitively, I felt a similar symmetry and tension between the elements. Great photograph.

      Thanks Jose. I debated posting this one, because it had little else of interest (the light is flat, the individuals are not doing anything particularly interesting)… but my eye kept being drawn back to the patterns, so I thought I’d share it.

    Virtual photographers need lessons on composition a whole lot more than megapixels, IQ, DR, and the endless minutia that fills the blogosphere. Well done!
