I posted this photo before. The blue umbrella was placed in the photo to balance the photo both in color and orientation. This is the Missouri Governor's Mansion. The blue catches you eye first and then you look to see where the woman is looking.

#3 is Value

Quote - Value is a powerful tool for balancing images. Dark elements feel heavier than light items. The higher the value-contrast (between object and background), the heavier will be the weight of the object.


Nice one Judy..

I absolutely LOVE it! My wife on the other hand, didn't understand the 'why' of the photo--what/why/who is the motivation. Both comments are valid.

"Visual Balance" Color.
The Purple is warmer that the Green, hence more dominant.

Look good to me,Tim...Glad you joined us!


Thanks, Judy....

Sometimes I read the different "rules" and pointers on how
to create images that attract your eye, or have visual
balance, and I wind up saying "Huh?"

I do, however, always make an attempt to compose the image
before I capture it...even if I can't tell you what "rule" I used,
I think for the most part they work...that's not to say I am
not trying to understand...I am, and hopefully this grey haired
ole fart will get it...LOL

p.4 I really like the first image Tim


Thank you, Pat...and I agree.

The second one might be a little "over processed." LOL

Here's the original image I used to create those abstracts.

In keeping with this challenge, this "vertical" image carries
more weight, and the clear blue sky with the bright colors
of the parasail add weight as well. And then there's the
"leading line" or cable, that leads you to the subject,
my lovely wife.

Just one before I go to bed. "The easiest way to achieve [balance] is by using symmetry, as it guarantees left to right, or top to bottom balance. The results look formal, organized, and orderly." I usually avoid symmetry, but here's one from the collection. Taken at Aga Khan Museum in Toronto. Not a mirror, but I think there was a steel wall backing the little snacks kitchen.

Read the article. Not bad ! I'm usually
bored or even disgusted by articles that
offer a "how-to" approach to aesthetics,
but this one was really kinda inneressin
... and short. Short is goooood !

"Value"

Without the hot spot this would
just a greenish leafy mishmash.
[Hot spot doesn't properly jump
out til you hit the download.]

"Texture"

Be sure to use the "+" option after
hitting download. Verrrrrry creepy.

The "+" might be delayed a bit due
to the file size, but the image won't
work without sufficient resolution.
IOW, it may load kinda slowly. But
it's a fun pic, so allow time to load !
