Off-Axis Symmetry

Some objects, particularly architecture and flowers, are so powerfully symmetrical that their geometry shines through even without centering on it. Try shooting such images from an angle, or off center, to create a more dynamic balance.  Here, the angled view shows both the geometry of the flower, and the arc of the petals, while the offset location adjusts for that angle, at the same time creating a balanced image.
