Balanced eyes in portraits - what do you think?
Hi folks, I'm currently editing some photos, and I've noticed that most people have a fair bit of asymmetry in regards especially to the eyes. How often do you find it somewhat distracting, although you aren't deliberately out to seek that little "problem", and well knowing that you won't shoot a direct face-on shot which will show this "problem" easily?
I'm mentioning this also because of some articles that mention beautiful people (men and women) as those who have almost perfect left-right symmetric faces. What's your say?

symmetry goes into the genes...DNA is geometrically symmetric...genetic mutations cause assymetry..ie the individual will be less healthy biologically. anyway most people are moreorless asymetric whether face, body structure, etc
