CREATIVE CONNECTIONS

Source: 1 Leading lines The two curved roads leading from the bottom-left and centre-left of the image create strong leading lines towards the middle of the image. These are intersected by the strong diagonal from right to left, enabling the viewer to create their own visual pathways into the image.2 Vertical obstacles The main diagonal line leads out of the frame, but this has been countered by the strong vertical lines of the building on the left-hand side.

This means that as you follow this line, your eye naturally rests here for a while before you move on to take in the rest of the image.4 Vertical lines The horizon is broken up by the vertical lines of the towers and buildings. These verticals make you take more time to explore the shapes and details of the different areas around the centre of the image, rather than simply following the horizon out of the image to the right.5 Blurred clouds The blurring of the clouds creates a subtle counterpoint to the stronger leading lines of the roads in the bottom of the frame, as they create opposing diagonal lines to lead you back to the main focal points of the buildings in the centre of the image.6 Strong diagonal The strong diagonal line created by the largest road from the bottom right to the left leads your eye across the whole frame, enabling you to then scan across the focal points of the buildings.
