    Default Challenge n 134 Diagonal Lines

    Diagonal lines in a photograph can have a powerful effect.

    They can add interest, a sense of dynamic or movement, and create depth to the image. They can direct the eye of your viewer as, and where, you choose for him.

    They can be actual lines made by an object or series of objects, or they may be implied by their absence, and of course there can be one or more lines.

    Whichever way you interpret this challenge- and as ever I am flexible- Id like to see diagonal(s) imposing their presence on the image.

    For those new or shy on this forum, I particularly encourage you to enter. Hopefully in doing so you will challenge yourself and have a bit of fun at the same time.

    Judging will be based on the following-
    * fulfilling the brief
    * a good photo based on composition, focus and consideration to the light.
    * Having impact. Will I remember your image after I go away from the computer?

    As ever I'll do my best to give friendly and constructive comments and find a winner based on my criteria stated above, bearing in mind my strictly amateur status

    Please read the general rules below:-

    The competition subject shall be selected by the winner of the preceding competition who will also judge the competition.
    One picture per person; images should conform to general image posting rules.
    Please use an EOS Canon camera - DSLR or M series
    Posted images should be taken during the running period of the competition. Any images submitted that were taken before the competition started, or after the competition has ended, will be deemed invalid.
    Images 800 pixels widest max (to help those with small monitors).
    No Photoshop frames and borders.
    Include a title; the image must convey the theme without title description.
    Please, NO comments on images- on this or another thread- until the round is over.
    No canvassing e.g. Im thinking of posting this image for the challenge, what do you think?
    I will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite images (please dont PM me to discuss my choices).

    Closing date for entries is midnight Sunday October 1st you have 3 full weeks to consider, capture and process your masterpiece.

    Good luck and have some fun.

    We visited a couple of restored windmills in Spain and the day we went was the annual celebration of the windmills in the Torre Pacheco area and the one day in the year that the Molina del Pasico has its sails unfurled. Unfortunately no motion blur - there was zero wind!
