Curved lines 01

Curves are an important element in image design. This weeks exercise is about curves that divide the image in two parts and therefore create tension. The idea is to let the eye wander from one part of the image to the other. I could have also used straight lines which is a lot easier exercise. By using curves lines the photographer has to look harder to find and to create such an image.

This image is a good example of a image where the curved curved line divides the image into two parts. The wall is a real obstacle. You see the beginning of an shopping card and you can imagine that there is a pharmacy on the left. You would like to see more but the wall is right in your face.Notice the great amount of tension in this image!

Enjoy and happy photographing!
