Lens Artists Photo Challenge #80– Leading Lines

This week, Tina gives us an opportunity to explore the photographic compositional element– “Leading Lines”.

Leading lines in photography can lead viewer’s eyes to follow the line of your image to view from one point to another or to view the main subject. It can be straight, or curved lines. Here are a few examples.

Antelope, Arizona:

Landscape in Abiquiu, New Mexico:

Ayuttaya, the ancient city of Thailand:

The Giza Pyramid. The leading line seems forever long:

The camel riding in the the Sahara Desert was an extraordinary experience:

Tina encourages us to learn about this photographic rule. Take a look of her stunning leading line images.Β 

Ann-Christine, Patti, Tina and I look forward to seeing how you use leading line element in your photos.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my blog friends and followers for your responses of last week’s theme. Your photos, travel adventures, poems, and stories for the “A Window With A View” theme are beautiful, imaginative, and inspiring. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  1. Excellent examples, Amy! I especially love the Arizona image and the pyramid in Gizeh. I just wonder how on earth did you manage a shot in Gizeh – without people in it? Were there 1981 and could hardly see the pyramids for all the people…mostly salesmen.


    • Thank you, AC! Our tour guide got us there early a little before 8 am, we were the first tour group arrived. I took this shot from the other side of the pyramid ( before the tourists got there). It got crowded after 9, got worst after 10 pm. By then you couldn’t take a photo without a bunch of people in front of you. There were a few people at the end of this photo, I removed them with PS.

  3. Great examples of how, you as a photographer, can guide the eyes of the spectator. Your Sahara dessert is the perfect example, I ‘have’ to see the camel riders, can’t get my eyes of them when I look at this photo. Good job, Amy!

  4. Good morning, Amy,
    I like the photo of the statues of Ayuttaya a lot because of that great line of perspective, and that of the pyramid of Giza because of it’s concentration via a close-up. Just showing a small portion of the pyramid makes the picture so great.
    Have a wonderful Sunday,


    • Thank you for taking time to comment, Janet. You and other blog friends have taught me how to travel and taking photos to share. I’m thankful for the opportunity of sharing my small experience with you. πŸ™‚

  5. The world IS a book Amy, and you are working page by page to see every piece of it! I especially loved your opening image this week and can just imagine you bumping along on a camel in the middle of the desert LOL!!! Terrific examples of how effective leading lines can be!
