Sets me thinking. Balanced in the perspective to view a landscape as best viewed but to achieve this it has to be weighted to one side–If you see what I mean. Loch Fyne 1976 -BD (Before digital)

The Balance between madness and desireOctober 2, 2017 at 10:18 am #14978
Thanks for making an interesting start to this months theme.
In Ken’s first photo I can see one bird balances the other but I think I would have liked the bird on the right to be looking into the picture.
Ken’s landscape receding landscape has a dark tree balanced with a lighter background so my eye travels from the foreground to the distant hills. I think a light vignetting would have helped to keep the eye on the central hills.
Plenty of balancing acts in Ralph’s photos. I enjoy looking at the first one of the people climbing the styal which is on a right third and balanced with the view on the left. However, I would have preferred the man on the left to have been looking at the others rather than looking away.
In Ralph’s second photo I think the walker is the main subject and is balanced with the rest of the scene. I think he just needs lightening a bit to make him stand out more.October 3, 2017 at 10:07 am #14994
Here’s a few images from my visit to the Alan Turing play in Knutsford last month. I need some advice on these please as too whether the balance works or not. What do you think?October 3, 2017 at 10:22 am #14996
Good topic choice Peter. It makes me think that I often used to comment on the weight of elements in a composition and that is what balance, to me, is all about.
Ians profile of the judge is a good example. You could crop, or take, it differently but I think he has just the right balance between the head and the space. That is a very good image.
Ralph’s style shot has balance too. The single person to the left and the single person to the right contribute greatly to it.
Ken’s gulls need a bit more space to right and left to get the balance right.October 3, 2017 at 5:09 pm #14997October 3, 2017 at 5:11 pm #14998

I agree with Peter–the bird needs to be looking inwards. Only had to throw a crust and she turned for me.October 4, 2017 at 9:22 am #15003
Well done Ken. You’re much more balanced now!October 6, 2017 at 9:11 am #15029
Three more images from my archives where I’ve tried to get the balance right. The first one is centrally balanced and I think works OK, but I’m not sure if I got the angles right in the second one. What do you think? I’m quite happy with the third as it complies to the rule of thirds which some think is over done.
