27 Effective Photographic Uses of Symmetry

Mastering composition in photography can be a tricky subject. You have the various rules and guidelines handed down through the centuries on the one hand and then the post modernists who would throw them all out. Whichever side of that coin you fall on, eventually as a photographer, you will come to the realisation that some very powerful compositions can be made using symmetry. This collection of photographs that use symmetry show what can be done. Share your own in the comments!
