The challenge for the next two weeks is to create images that have symmetry. The world is full of symmetrical patterns. The object of this exercise is to capture these patterns in an artful way.

    What could be more symmetrical than this beauty. I stand to be corrected but I believe this is a Canadian Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly, perched on some Garry Oak in BC.

    Went to the Zoo Conservatory today to look for symmetry in nature. 1/100 sec, f/6.3, ISO 1250. I was surprised how high I had to push the ISO to get reasonable Depth of Field. I ran this image through Topaz Denoise to get good results.

    Symmetrical dog yawn
    ISO 1600, 50mm, f/6.3, 1/25th sec

  14. Dwight says:

    out with the dog saw this fence so ya. I removed the background, filled it with black straightened, and converted it to b+w.

  15. Debbie McCluskey says:

    Interesting assignment, what I thought was symmetry was not at all what I imagined. I found the simplest things made the best art symmetry. This was with my macro lens, on a mirror, with headlamp, with settings on manual, F5.6, 1/60 sec ISO set at 640 to reduce noise. Only cropped.

    What is this object?

  16. Henri says:

    Another leaf pattern from the Zoo Conservatory

    f2.8, 1/80 sec., ISO 500

    F/8, 1/250 sec., ISO 100

    I had permission to shoot this door but couldn’t wait until sun was more perfectly aligned. I promised to send a copy to my friendly neighbour and he replied he was admonished by his wife for not cleaning the winter grime off the horizontal edges.
    AI can only do so much was my response Haha.
