The symmetry in this image is all in the gesture. Clasped hands on one side and folded arms on the other side. Nicely seen by the photographer.
This had great reflective body language and a nice moment and because of the two generations represented, it is storytelling. Strong composition and strong content – well done.
This image stood out from the beginning. It has a feeling of romance and adventure. Or is it more mystery and intrigue? Aside from the woman in evening attire, thereʼs little left but a ceremonial procession between sodden trees and foliage. Itʼs a good use of symmetry as a way to build an image as a leading line, a multiplier or divisor that can be incorporated for wherever or whatever the desire.
I like the mystery created from the line of umbrellas heading into the unknown. The late afternoon reflecting off the woman’s dress is the perfect focal point.
The semi-circle of the low-cut back of the brideʼs dress is augmented by the stance and posture of the gushing women from one shoulder to another. Then the strong vertical of the veil divides the photo down the middle. That divide is the necessary element to create symmetry.
The line created by women with identical expressions is fantastic. The photographer’s vision is strong and clear.
Symmetry plays a role here, of course, but the photo “works” regardless. That extra set of hands, the black jacket that melds into shadows and how nothing more, literally no head, no body attached to those mystery hands, creates a delightfully humorous image. But, it left me wondering if the sprucing up of the groom was done twice as fast.
This was a clean, easy read and good choice of lensing.
Such a beautiful image. It has stature. It has the feeling of something more. Itʼs a difficult photo to describe. The obvious elements of light, composition, lens choice and a moment are all there. But it almost seems to have less and thatʼs possibly how it stands alone as a fantastic image. It leaves us with a sense of satisfaction where seeing more would be less. And the symmetrical aspects of the image are practically invisible, yet they add greatly to the image.
We have seen this moment many times before, but it is always enjoyable to view when done right … and this one is done right.
I really like this tastefully elegant use of graphic shapes in a store display and how the bride is holding a pair of shoes, and her bouquet, in one hand while reaching for another pair. Actually I like the way the entire scene comes together in symmetrically, colorful visual prose. The bride splits the frame in the middle, accentuating the repeating shapes.
It can be a long day for Bridesmaids. I stumbled across these two on my way to the bride who was changing into her traditional dress for the reception about to begin. The symmetry of the scene was immediately apparent to me, just perfect. They were both truly asleep and I took this photo quickly fearing they would awake at any minute, which they did not.
