Artist: J O H N C H I A P P O N E Title: Brooklyn Bridge Medium: Photograph This picture portrays balance by taking the scene and cutting it in half. Other than the people in the background the picture would be completely balanced. I choose it because I think it is a beautiful picture.
FOCAL POINT/EMPHASIS EX 3: The middle of this radial design is the main focal point for me. My eyes are automatically drawn towards the center and my eyes slowly wander through the rest of the design. I really like this.
Symmetrical Balance Creates Harmony...Having a symmetrical arrangement adds a sense of calm, whereas an asymmetrical arrangement creates a sense of unease, imbalance...Take a look at the background, analyzing the dominant colors. You'll see it forms horizontal bands, which I've shown in red on the photo. The varying widths of these bands add visual interest to the composition, it's a change of rhythm, but it's gentle.
