Photographers that are interested in putting together a visually strong portfolio might find the use of Dynamic Symmetry grids in Lightroom or Photoshop a useful tool for selecting their best images. For example, every time I use Lightroom to process my files, I quickly lay the 1.5 armature of the rectangle over my pictures to see which compositions are the strongest. Of course, not every element has to land on every line in the grid - you just want to select the best image out of your group of photographs.
In the picture below, taken at a Splashes of Hope installation in Utica, NY I narrowed down my choice to the one that told the best story and had the most successful composition.
