I just lost 0.15 because of a single vote of "2". It sure would be nice t o know why... but it's been debated before and some feel ok to cream ya and not tell why.

Seems to me that to be leading lines, the lines should lead somewhere. Otherwise they are the subject themselves or are irrelevent, in which cases they're not leading lines. The classic definition is that leading lines lead to, from, or through the main subject. I will be voting higher for lines that lead somewhere, and lower for lines that don't. In this challenge, there seem to be a lot of the latter.

Up a bit from sub 4 this morning. Maybe the trend will continue.
I like the shot, but it is different.

I'm very happy with this score (doubt it'll stay up this high, so I'm posting it now!), and got comments from some of my favorite commentors: hotpasta, Jutilda, & pineapple. :)

Simple but spot on.

Why can't everyone see that???


Hey, that'd be a personal best!

As for me, it's not doing as well as I'd hoped, but the week's young. :)

4.7 something! I had 2 pics to choose from. One was a set of Rail Road tracks very clear and detailed but I thought.... there will be a lot of those. So I went another way and I am paying the price. Live and learn I guess. Another 30% finish in my future!!!!

Heh, posthumous. I just got to EXACTLY the same score and vote total, except you have nice comments and I have none. :p

I went with this definition: "something to lead my eye through a shot. It could be a path, a line of cones, even a moored boat pointing out to sea - just as long as it makes your mind move you through the picture"

You beat me to it Robert.
The converging/diverging lines lead the eye to or away from a subject.


I've seen entries where there is NO subject from which the lines lead or from which the lines pull away.

If we don't see a main subject (to or from the line(s)), should we feel guilty for deducting a point or two?

I feel your pain - and am there as well LOL

I also shoot several scenarios but always seem to choose the wrong one to enter!

Gotta love the no comments. C'mon people....if there is something wrong with the photo, (if you know the difference), have the courtesy to explain. I haven't entered a challenge in a while precisely for this reason.

Yep, me too. I note how my eye reacts immediately upon opening the voting page.

I'll given even the weakest "lead" credit for meeting the challenge, and then vote on how strongly it does it along with the usual factors like focus, attractiveness (to me), and emotional impact (on me).

But if the shot has lines that don't go anywhere, I ding it. This isn't an image I've seen, but for example, if someone took a picture of a gas grill so that all of the lines were horizontal and parallel, I'd count that as DNMC.

Don't worry, I am in the same boat, 4.8 with NO comments.

No comments which is just as well. Probably all be "I don't see any lines in this photo" or equally as ignorant.

your low score = ignorant voters

good equation, let us know if that philosophy works out.

Come on man, I've submitted crap and gotten better scores than I thought it deserved. Discussions in this thread alone show a misunderstanding of a very basic photographic concept.
