This is the final image for assignment 2 – “elements of design”.  This is to demonstrate a distinct shape.

Onion

(ISO200, 1/50sec exposure, f/5.6 aperture)

The circular shape of the onion here dominates the composition.  In addition, the lines around the skin of the onion also create a pattern for the eye to follow toward the roots where they converge.

I placed the onion off-centre, with the roots more-or-less positioned on an intersect of the top and left third,  as the circular shape could have made for a static image otherwise
