When composing a landscape shot there are many cool things to look for: a dramatic sky, any sort of reflection, a near and far effect and any lines which can pull the viewer into and around or through the image.
Lines present themselves with surprising regularity. I have not mastered the use of lines yet, by any stretch, but I love working to incorporate them into my compositions.
As I do a lot of backpacking and hiking trails are an often used line…
It seems to me that the zig-zaggy lines work better then the straight ones…
The image below benefits from a diagonal line originating at the lower left corner.
Of course roads already have lines painted on them and make a simple target!
Here mud and stone provide lines into the light…
During Tulip Festival the opportunities for capturing lines amongst the rows is endless.
lines add a powerful dimension to any image!
