I know it's not the traditional definition of leading lines -- so I called it a shoehorn.

But it actually fits my definition of leading lines, because I've always had the traditional + others version. :)

In my world it doesn't have to be lines that converge, or show distance or space, it simply can be a line like this that leads your eye up to the subject.

I found it odd that we both shot photos for two solid days and didn't really shoot anything with solid leading lines in it. I guess we were just too distracted to think about shooting for the challenge at the time.
This is a pretty good one though. I like what ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' cutout said.

Other than the additional limb bottom center, this is a magnificent image! Love the very subtle tonal change from top to bottom.

Subtle colour and sharp photography. Love the image but not sure about the leading line. But hey, what do I know. Still love the image.
