Edge aligment, dramatic: This is a truly beautiful image! Maybe not best representative of these keywords, in terms that if we show this to anyone, "dramatic" and especially "edge alignment" would hardly come to mind, but still overall great image.

Rule of 1/3, Closure: Nice image, but please check my comment to Adrián about what the Rule of 1/3 really mean, as it completely applies to your image, too.

Nuria

thanks for the feedback! By reading your comment on Adrián's post I think I understand better what the rule of thirds means, and I have tried to apply it to the new composition.
Tomorrow I will post a ''new version'' of the second photo (rule of thirds, closure) let's see if I can do it better hahaha

Rule of third, asymmetric: Very nice psychedelic... object (I assume it's a hair clip?!) :) And yes, you've got the Rule of 1/3 now, very gppd! On the other hand, this composition still feels too symmetric, don't be afraid to break it a little more. I would try to move the battery up all the way to the edge of the screen, and move the notes to the left edge of the screen. It would still adhere to Rule of 1/3, and it would be way more asymmetrical. The point is, try to find the most extreme expression of the keywords that you can think of, it is an exercise that greatly develops the creative flexibility. So if it's "asymmetry" well try and go as asymmetric as you can make it!

Oh and by the way, rule of 1/3 doesn't mean that objects must be orthogonal (horizontal or vertical). In a way, what's more important are the intersections of these imaginary lines, not the lines themselves.

One example of what I meant by "not orthogonal":

You are right, the psychedelic object is a hair clip!
I have updated the second photo (rule of third, closure) and I think it is better this time.
About the last photo I'm not really sure if it's totally asymmetric, but the way the objects are arranged made the photo look more ''organized''... otherwise it looked like a bunch of objects randomly displayed and you couldn't actually see the diagonals.

Rule of third, closure: Yes, this is perfect!
Asymmetric, diagonal: Very nice image, but not quite asymmetric. Since most of the students have problems with asymmetry, I will explain more in class. Actually much more example of asymmetry is your Rule of 1/3 + Closure image.

The moon: Mesmerising!

And excellent diagonal composition, by the way!
