kyricom: Some of these are not symmetrical ( 5 years and 592 days ago )
friiskiwi: I quite agree, the idea behind the contest is that if you cut a photo in half you should have 2 identical (or near identical ) photos. ( 5 years and 591 days ago )
siduck68: Having read the contest description I personally feel this has not been made as clear as could be. I.e. the photo should be symmetrical. It merely suggests that nature is symmetrical and to submit a photo showing this???? ( 5 years and 591 days ago )
BeSea: The definition says "exact" configuration on opposite sides of a dividing line. That's pretty clear to me. ( 5 years and 589 days ago )
Wayne Cheah: "Nature", by nature does not naturally have "exact" configuration. If it is, it is not natural. ( 5 years and 589 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Symmetry is a fairly straightforward concept. As the description says... "Symmetry:
Exact correspondence of form and constituent configuration on opposite sides of a dividing line or plane or about a center or an axis." I will be looking at the main subject which is the focus of the shot, and imagine a dividing line going down the middle (or across etc.). There are two basic possibilities: the two halves are identical, or they are mirror images of each other. If there are significant items in the background, they would need to be balanced as well.

k5683: hey, yeah, be a little more specific when describing the details of the contest so us others don't WASTE OUR TIME! ( 5 years and 588 days ago )

Howdie stranger!
