"In nature there are few sharp lines."
~ A. R. Ammons

Lines are everywhere around us. To take a better look at the lines we encounter, we're launching a new Shoot Out photo contest - Line Up!

S Curve by Jay Getsinger

You'll find lines defining the elements in architecture, capturing the imagination on a fine automobile, evoking sensuality from a voluptuous model.

Lines denote geographic and topographic boundaries, cause wars and make sense of geometry.


Photographers can find so many lines to help set the perfect image. Exercising creativity, you realize that lines can be hard or soft, straight or curved, clear or opaque.
