So, before I commence voting, let me ask a question.

It is my understanding that this "leading lines" compositional technique is meant to draw your eye to a main subject, correct?

Kodak's explanation

This is what I went with.

Here's what the Kodak site says:

"Select a camera angle where the natural lines of the scene lead the viewers' eyes into the picture and toward your main center of interest. You can find such a line in a road, a fence, even a shadow. Diagonal lines are dynamic; curved lines are flowing and graceful. You can often find the right line by moving around and choosing an appropriate angle."

The key here is "...toward your main center of interest". I've scanned a few of the entries and it seems that many of the "lines" lead to nothing. They just fade off into the tiny distant background. :-(

Here's what the Pentax site suggests:

"Every great photograph has a leading line as part of its composition. A leading line can be almost anything: roads, highways, fences, rivers, trees, skylines, shadows, staircases, buildings, textures, and even parts of the body, such as arms and legs. Leading lines are simple, and serve to draw the viewer's eye into the image and to the main subject."

Again, "...draw the viewer's eye into the image and to the main subject" is the key phrase. :-(

Personally, I think this is very limited. I've always taught that a leading line can also lead AWAY from the "subject" and either take the viewer further into or actually out of the frame.
