Visual balance is the way that the different parts of a composition relate to one another.

Examples of Symmetry

1. Radial Symmetry --rotating around a center point

2. Exact Symmetry--a mirror image or an exactly repeated design

3. Axial Symmetry--having 2 opposing repeats, one on each side of an axis.
