Am I allowed to use the same subject as (but different shot than) my previous assignment? If so:



Sony a6000 with 4/16-70mm ZA @ 16mm. f/11, 15 seconds, ISO 100. (I took this specifically with this assignment in mind.)

Thank you for the pass Brian! Just one more assignment before I need to go out and shoot some more.

@ clk230, I think both are passes, good symmetry to build the composition and then a few asymetrical elements to create tension. Well done.

@ onsplekkie, first one is a clear pass, second one would also be if it weren't mining. I actually like it a lot, even the 2 Solexes in the greenhouse add an element of symmetry (allthough not mathematically).

@MacManus: Christophe, the number of lines of symmetry are confounding. Please try to limit yourself to a single line of symmetry and try again.

Cheers... Brian

@Brian: many thanks for the feedback. I was trying to use central symmetry instead of usual axial symmetry, but it did not work!

Let me try with two (single) axial symmetry

A99+Tamron 28-75@50mm

1/50s
ISO 2000

f/5.6
1/400s
ISO 160

@MacManus: The first is a clear pass, Christophe. Well done! The second... not so much. The asymmetry in the letter predominates and gives the horizontal and vertical symmetry of the box in the frame less impact. It is a good example of central composition.

Cheers... Brian

@Brian: Many thanks for the feedback, very useful as usual for me to improve.
I admit I was not fully satisfied with the second one.
I'll proceed to another assignment!
Cheers.

I took this picture with the assignment in mind but am not sure whether itís strong enough for a pass because the propeller is a few degrees off. Honestly, who would park their airplane like that?!?!
Anyway, itís the only shot Iíve taken for this one, so if itís no good, Iíll have a good excuse to head out again.


Sony A65 with Sigma 18-50mm f2.8, 1/4000 @ f3.2, ISO400, focal length 18mm. No cropping, just converted to black and white to lessen the distraction of the clouds.

I was out this morning and saw another opportunity to get a shot for the Symmetry assignment so I couldn't pass it up.


The usual Sony A65 with Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 DG, 1/160s @ f/2.8 ISO100 35mm. As before, no cropping, just converted to black and white as I think symmetry works better this way.
