skm.sa100 - Perfect symmetry and nicely central

Philostar - good one! Most unusual. I like how the model breaks the symmetry.

+1 and +1, two very good recent entries, allthough skm's picture is really more symmetric then centally composed. I think there is a subtle difference between the two, but most symmetrical compositions will be central, but there can be a lot more central compositions that are not symmetric.

Here's one from me that I think is central and nearly symmetric

Church door:


A850 + Tamron 28/2.8 BBARR Multi C (Adaptel 2)

Mikey2000, thanks for the compliment. Always feels good to be complemented by the truly senior members of the forum.
pegelli, I agree that symmetric and central aren't always the same. Did you notice how the intersection of the tracks happens at the center of the image before splitting away? That made me decide that it's a central composition.
Else I'd have posted to grayscale or trains TV's.

Well spotted, fireisland! I think the bokeh looks good but I want a bit more DOF to get the flowers a bit sharper. I think even a stop or two extra would help that but not really affect the bokeh in this case.

I hear you. This was the first time me using CZ24mm with my NEX-6 and I just wanted to test the oof. More dof would not hurt I agree.
