Rhythm and Pattern

Showing rhythm your eye should move through the image flowing through the entire frame. I have photographed a rail bridge with a train travelling by, on a diagonal line. The glimpses of bits of yellow on the train and the angle of the bridge takes your eye from left to right of the image in an implied continuous line.

Pattern is static and should fill the frame. I have photographed some primroses. You can imagine an enormous bed filled with dozens of primroses all exactly the same forming a lovely pattern. Pattern pictures can often look boring as they are repetitious.
