This segment’s theme is “Leading Lines”.

“A classic compositional rule called “leading lines” is used to direct the viewer’s attention through a photograph.”

“Leading lines can be literal, such as lines on the ground, or they can be implied, such as an imaginary line between people looking at each other”

“They can be straight, diagonal, curvy or otherwise. They can lead to, or away from, the subject.”


Here is an article in the Nikonians Resources: Composition Technique: Leading Lines

For inspiration check out the great entries from the March, 2013 Online Assignment – Leading Lines.

This is the second of 4 themed segments of the Best of Nikonians 2014 Contest. This segment will be open to entries from June 1 – July 15.

The winner will be announced at the end of July. The winner will be recognized in our weekly newsletter and will receive a printable Certificate of Photographic Achievement.

In addition to our overall winner, the top ten images will be advanced to compete as finalists in the annual Best of Nikonians 2014 Contest. All ten images will automatically be uploaded to the Best of Nikonians 2014 Gallery. All images must be 1200 pixels on the long side.

This contest, along with the monthly forum contest, are the preliminary rounds for the Annual Best of Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!
