This exercise was about how photographs are balanced and how the different graphic elements of the image, such as size, tone, colour and placement contribute to the balance of the image.
I found this exercise quite tricky as I was slightly stumped as to whether I should be demonstrating imbalance as well as balance. I felt as though simply showing photographs which were clearly in balance, such as in picture 4 of the dandelion head, meant I wasn't able to show images with any visual tension caused by imbalance. I think what I have learned here is that although I feel that I understand what creates balance in a photograph, the 'rules' apply much more when an image intends to show balance. In my image of the scuba fins and boat, this in some ways is poorly balanced as there is greater padding on the left of the image as on the right. There is also a problem with Picture 4 as the yellow flower disrupts what is intended to show a perfectly balanced image.
