   Symmetry is part of your picture's composition and overall affects how the piece looks to the opposing eye, even though it seems like the average joe won't notice, it's more aesthetic to the mind. SYMMETRY refers to a line that splits an object in half and, if both sides of the object are an exact mirror image of each other, then this object is said to be symmetrical. The line that splits a symmetrical object is called the line of symmetry. The line of symmetry would be the y-axis that goes through the center of the sun and vertically as well through the middle of the subject. The picture below is unsymmetrical because it does not follow the same rules of symmetry as the one above. Simply taking a step to the right or left can greatly improve your product, as you can see here. Learn more about symmetry here.
