Exercise; Rhythms and patterns

Produce at least two photographs, one should convey rhythm, the other pattern

Pattern

I saw the pattern produced by the Hosta leaves in the garden, so I framed the photo tightly so that no boundaries to the pattern were seen.

Rhythm

Here the eye is drawn from the out of focus base of the flower to the in-focus red tip of the floret at the top.

What have I learnt from this exercise? Before starting this course I understood little about pattern or rhythm in photographs, if they happened at all in my pictures then it will have been by accident. I now feel a little more confident about how I can use this knowledge to improve my photography.
