Felt the same about the shoe lace. Then thought - hey - this is about shoe laces. ;~) Also, I'm not fond of PS work on documents (perhaps to a fault). burning down - h-m-m - don't think so - the light tones here work in the "tonal balance." When I consider "asymmetrical balance" (which I do probably do too much - I drilled it into my students) I generally consider it in terms of: tonal (and or color) balance shape balance focus balance line balance When they all work together - generally the image will appear visually powerful (even if the subject itself lacks intrinsic power). ?I believe that photography loves banal objects, and I love the life of objects.? ?
