Line

Image

The gate has several lines coming from different areas but it gives a sense of direction because the line seem to meet at the middle of the gate.

Image

Not only are there obvious lines on the ground, but the photo also emphasises movement and lines through the direct the riders are leaning.

Image

I thought the bridge was a great example of line because there is more than one type of line as well as creates leading lines for the viewer.

Image

The spokes of the wheel, the frame of the bike and the grooves of the tire are all made up of lines.

What I love most about this photo is how the sunset helps accent the telephone wires.  Our eyes are immediately attracted to the lighter part of the sky because most of the photo is dark. This helps gravitate your eyes to the clear lines of the wire.

Composition

Image

I get great enjoyment out of when I discovered interesting photographers or artists that are unbeknown to most. For instance, this photo was taken by Hsin Tai Lui, who is mostly a black and white and environmental photographer.  The photograph shows great composition, which can be hard to capture when your dealing with environmental shots because the artist has to work with the given elements rather than a controlled environment or staged props.  What makes this so greatly composed is how the photographer has the main subject off to the side, but the guitar, window molding and the direction of which the man is looking creates leadings lines straight to a compelling sign for this scene.  Though the man is the main subject, the objects around him help create a story or message.
