03.01 Single Point
The single point is the most basic of graphical elements. It is small relative to the image, but should contrast with its background in such a way that it is the first thing the viewer sees. An example would be a long distance shot of a sailing boat on the ocean.
Single points may be compositionally placed:
in the centre - usually creating a static image
moderately off-centre - some dynamism
at the extreme periphery - a highly dynamic or unstable image requiring justification
