Leading lines are used to direct the viewer’s eye to the subject of the photograph. Leading lines commonly converge at the point of the subject, for example along a path or river. In the first image, the line leads from two edges directly toward the runner and the dog so the viewer automatically focuses on these subjects.
The next image uses a tree to create leading lines to Hilary.
The image below illustrates a more subtle use of leading lines, from the dog’s tail, back, leash and legs toward his eyes, which is the desired focal point of this image.
