emmarky, I think the shot is more about reflection than symmetry, maybe if you would have cropped off the bottom and made the horizon go through the middle it could be symmetry as well but for this version it's not there yet. So pls. try again.

But first you need to finish this one, once started you must pass to try another one (see the rules on page 1)

I'm not quite sure if this one works for this category and if not I will stick it somewhere else.

The even spacing of the rivets in the main support do show symmetry. Consider that a pass.

I think #1 has too many non symmetrical distractions (gravestones), but the second is a royal pass for me. Very nice composition and play of lines. Also the similar shapes coming back in the darker ceiling behind the pillar works very well.

I think I would have allowed the asymetrical background, if the shape in the foreground would have been "perfect", however since it's a bit crooked the total doesn't feel far enough for a pass, so pls. try again.

Much better symmetry here ulyshut. Also the two assymetrical elements (the person and the sahdow) emphasise it even more and don't distract from it.

Only thing I would have done is made a perspective correction, so the building doesn't lean back, however I won't hold that against you and it's a pass.
