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).

of objects.? ? Joseph Sudek
