Diagonal Lines

The interesting part of this challenge is that many diagonal lines are also leading lines. Since we’ve already ‘done’ leading lines, I’ve tried to come up with some images that are all about the diagonal itself, rather than them being, even incidentally, leading lines too.

I think this is my favourite of this week’s selection:

Horizontal Lines

I have to saythat I’m completely in agreement with Cee when it comes not only to horizons but also other horizontal lines actually being horizontal; I use the Straighten Tool in Lightroom to correct my own errors – as far as possible.
