Any subject, any treatment, but I want leading lines to be a major part of the composition. That includes S-curves, curved lines and straight lines - they all guide the viewer's eye through the image. Originality carries bonus points.

All entries to be shot within the timeframe of the competition which closes Wednesday 22nd June 1800 BST and EXIF to be provided.

Discussion only here please, entries go here

Well a leading line to me is actually an imaginary line drawn between two points, such as a chimney and a church tower, used to guide you into a harbour, missing all the nasty bits.

But I guess that karma mechanic is thinking of the photographic term
