I forgot to mention, you are all over this... the isolation of the church, is balanced by the colours, green, and the mist, which ads interest to the eye, drawing the viewer into the picture... the 2nd is the perfect blue of the sky, (colour) balancing against the imperfections of the tree...

Then the blue, but the stump tells quite a story!

This tells me a story of isolation.
The deer in the pasture, with all it's texture, is set against the privacy of the house, behind the protection of the trees...

Using Visual Balance for better Photography
This challenge is probably my most difficult to achieve. Somehow, I guess I just don't get it. So as I'm trying to better understand, I've created this photo. I think it fits on several points.
#2. Size
Large elements appear heavier than small ones. Size is an evident visual weight factor because, in the physical world, an object that’s bigger than another will naturally be heavier, and will take up more physical space. Large elements command more attention. We naturally see them first, or spend more time looking.
4 – Texture
Texture adds visual weight to items in photographs. Texture is just more interesting and our eyes are drawn to it. Smooth areas will feel lighter than those with a lot of heavy texture.
6 – Quantity
A few small objects can balance out a single large object.
7 – Orientation
Vertical objects appear heavier than horizontal objects. A diagonal orientation carries more visual weight than a horizontal or vertical one.

If, I missed the concept, please feel free to say so. I'm really struggling with this.

I'm thinking that each tip applies to the example given. Not that all tips have to apply to one photo, Sunny.

I think that's why the author shows each example relevant to each tip. If you can do it all together --well, that's totally amazing!

Well thank you Judy! But I'm struggling actually to figure out why I like some of my shots much more than others - perhaps it has partly to do with an unconscious application of balance principles. Hhmmm, application or sheer luck?


Ah, who knows....but, I think it's great if you can accomplish balance principals unconsciously! I think it's

great to understand how it works! My husbans says it's an artistic eye! Go figure...

p.3 The church surrounded by green is very appealing

Next is Isolation

Quote-Objects isolated in a space appear heavier than those surrounded by other elements. Look at the image

below with a brown circle on it. Your eyes go directly to the brown circle first because there’s nothing else to

see.

You can see the author's illustration in the artical...


p.4 You found some wonderful examples.
