3/5 – March is a Contest Event! The topic is "Leading Lines." And we will have a drawing for a $50 Service Photo Gift Certificate

For this contest, the composition must be based on strong leading lines that draw the viewer’s eyes through the frame. There are many types of lines: straight, diagonal, curvy, zigzag, radial. Successful images should have a main subject that is clearly supported by leading lines, unless the leading lines themselves are interesting enough to be the main subject. This contest's judge is Ron Peiffer.
