#'s 1,6,19,21,22 all do it for me. I really liked #9 a lot for the color and composition but I feel like it was a better representative of a theme like repetition rather than leading lines, there isn't 1 or 2 lines that draw my eye across the image or to a certain point in the image.

In terms of just meeting the theme requirements, I think Chewy nailed it more than any of us (nice work bro). I also think Rodi's has a hidden strength to it that if people look closely at what is there, where the lines take you and all of that, they will see how great of an image it actually is. I wouldn't be surprised to see either end up the winners here.

Remmib - your image belongs in a frame... fantastic work. You should print and sell that one.

In your opinion.......

I can see your point but there are definately leading lines in there that draw you across the image - your eyes will follow a path across it - the theme isn't leading lines that must be continuous..

Anyway - IMO - I think this is the best contest we have had in terms of quality entries - way too much to chose. Good luck to all.

Feel like I've voted on most of 'em! - Highlights imo are 19 and 21. Whoever wins this one has got a big challenge picking as good a theme!

i dont get the "multiple votes" thing..i only voted for one; though it was a really hard choice. I figure if we are gonna do multiple votes then we should use a point system like 3 for 1st, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd.

Sorry,
Rule #3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.

contest #36 - Get Grounded
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...0&postcount=72


don't worry, there's always a new contest every other week

So, I'm just asking your opinion in this...why 22's picture leading lines, but my sunset picture wasn't?



I'm missing something here...

Well look at the clear white lines of light going from the middle of the frame out to the upper edges.


Personally I don't see too many clear cut lines in yours like I do here. In yours I see bunches of clouds.

I can buy some of that...but the lines were from the sun in the water...not the skyline.

But, if you didn't see that, then it wouldn't be a good example I guess.

Thanks.

I do see what you are talking about but those lines aren't really "leading" to anywhere in my opinion.

Sorry.

Thanks for the votes guys. There are a lot of good photos in here!

I love your photo remmib, but I just didn't think it fit this contest as well as some of the other ones did. Also, fix the vignetting on the top-right corner of the photo. I think someone else already mentioned this before, and I agree with them, that you can easily sell that photo as a print, etc.

Wow. 86 votes by 22 voters so far...... Some one's making lots of votes.
