Symmetry principle

In addition to the rule of thirds and the golden section principle Symmetry is a really good way to take a photograph, especially if you shoot architecture. It creates a sense of clarity and serenity, but solidity at the same time.

Just have a look at these photos, do you agree with me?

And if you've got images with symmetry, please, share them in comments - it would be interesting.

Thank you in advance!
