How to compose a photo using Leading Lines
#albumtheme , #earthday2012 , #landscapephotography , #leadinglinesmonday

Besides nature, man is responsible for creating elements that can be used a a leading line in your photograph (as seen the he image below). Leading lines dont always have to continuous...our mind can merge the disjointed parts of river to create a leading line. The example in my gallery below show leading lines that are curved, parallel, diagonal, warpped around an object (Image Title: Silent Motion) , mirror images (one in the sky other on the beach - Title: Kealia Beach) and sometimes lines don't lead at all...but form an entire image itself (Image Title: Distortions).

First 15-20 images in my gallery are arranged to showcase the use of leading lines in photographs.

Enjoy & Share.

Thank you very much! Just a pleasure to learn tips like this from you! +1111 8-))
 
that would be a really cool place for beginner mountain bikers!!! i wish i was there.
 
Incredible work man. Very impressed.
 
Should one look through a red glass at a white lily, you would seem to see a red lily. But there would be no red lily. So it is always our problem we see false mental picture and we conclude wrongly what we have seen. But your photo indeed brings the elements out plainly. The vivid color exposes our senses clearly distortion is only in the eyes and mind of the beholder. In images leading lines give borderline reality one can comprehend in photography and sensory imagery.
 
Thank you so much for sharing such beautiful images with us. I am in awe the the entire collection. I only hope to be able to learn to capture such images. Thanks +Jay Patel :)
 
me parece muy interesante y gratificante poder captar todos los colores de la naturaleza y conservarlos allí para recrearnos ...

+Jay Patel , you are soooooooo talented! Many people on this planet have a hard times seeing the striking and subtle beauty in nature itself. What you do is to facilitate that process with your work. You are nature's diplomat.
 
+Michael Comia Thanks....I dont know about being a diplomat, but I do love being outside in nature. It is therapeutic!!
 
Great collection makes me want to get out and go for a hike (Bush walk in Australian lingo)
