“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”

“Symmetry in Photography Composition”
Take a look at yourself in the mirror. Your symmetrical appearance with placement of similar organs on both the sides indicates the harmony natures creates with the use of symmetry. Like the balanced symmetry of sounds creates music and random sounds become noise, similarly Photographic appeal can be generated with the use of well balanced symmetrical composition.
Symmetrical composition are achieved by keeping similar subjects on either side of the center line .One can also use something random to break or tweak this rule a little bit just to preserve the touch of imperfection and natural appearance.
Note : Did you notice how the photographer, in this picture created a little imbalance with the clever use of spilled water in a otherwise perfectly symmetrical photograph ? Let us know your opinion in the comments below.
