pattern could be viewed in two ways. In composition, it may be defined as the Organization of Objects Photograph, in which the main visual elements positioned based on an imaginary structure will stand out is compositionally strong. In design. Pattern is defined as repeating shape or form, and in abstract sense can in itself be the subject of a photograph. This is a photograph of one of the world's largest chandeliers. It's found in the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat in Oman, and it's pretty amazing standing underneath it. I was intrigued by the patterns, and so not surprisingly, passen became the story for my photograph. I deliberately chose a square crop because it emphasises the circular formation. The contrast between the abruptness of the right angles and the smoothness of the curves, despite being very different, share perfect symmetry to create balance. And although the square format cuts into the outer circle, the guest out theory of closure ensures the mind completes the...
