What is an example of duality in society?  For example, the duality of good and evil, peace and war, love and hate, and happy and sad. However, contrary to what most people may think, these two opposing forces do not have to reject each other. In fact, they can coexist and even be complementary.
Another definition: 
As hinted at by the word "dual" within it, duality refers to having two parts, often with opposite meanings, like the duality of good and evil. If there are two sides to a coin, metaphorically speaking, there's a duality Peace and war, love and hate, up and down, and black and white are dualities.
Examples: Google "images of duality".

NOTE: Regarding the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in photography.  The Planning Committee has decided that the components of your final image should be produced by your camera. We are interested in your work as a photographer. If you decide to modify any part of an image in your photo, such as replacing the sky, it MUST come from your camera only. Basic tools like the healing brush for dust spot removal are allowed. GENERATIVE AI IS NOT ALLOWED for contests unless the rules  specifically permit it.
