Leading Lines • Lens-Artists Challenge #80. In this week’s edition Tina’s line ‘It’s not so much what you put into your image as it is where you want the viewer’s eye to go and how you get them there’ almost leapt off the page.
Paradoxically, the way (I think) the leading lines in this photo work is that they initially draw the eye to the left, into the direction of ‘Mehr’ (meaning more), the darker side of the photo. Only in the second instance the eye moves to the lighter side of the image. Towards the word “LICHT’, meaning light.
In this photo with a leading lines story there’s no such paradox I think. The eye moves along the clothes line from the darker left side to the lighter right side. Only then it ‘tumbles downward’ into the lake and only then moves to the right.
In this photo the leading lines speak for them self. The eye is drawn towards the center of the photo.
So far for my viewpoint on Leading Lines for Lens-Artists #80. You can find more entries in photo challenges here.
