    Thanks, good work overall, although I feel it would be better if you tried to use less elements and emphasize more the principle you illustrate in each image. For example, symmetry and movement images worked really well, but alignment, contrast and hierarchy #2 (dominant by difference) not so much as it’s hard to figure out what you wanted to show. For your homework, try to work with max 5 elements (to start with) and we’ll see how that goes.

    Homework: these 5 images are looking very nice! A couple of comments, to make them even better.
    First, it looks you may be a little confused as to how exactly to use rule of 1/3. That’s ok, because I know you may feel like “how should I align objects along these rule-of-1/3 axes, should they be edge-aligned with them or centered?” and the answer is- basically it can be both, depending really on your shapes.
    For example, the bottle image I understand very well what you wanted to do:

    But feels like this may have been a better composition, which in this case would “center” the bottle along the 1/3 axis:
    .
    Please note that at any rate, this bottle image is too left-heavy, it needs something on the right side to balance it.

    On the other hand with the “cookies”composition, the shape feel better “edge aligned” with 1/3 lines.
    You would just need to increase the contrast between the different shapes/zones of the image to emphasize that.
    It could be more symmetrical looking (very similar to your image, just slightly more contrast):

    or like this (more vertically asymmetrical composition):
