The line I selected to photograph was a combination of leading line and vertical line--basically a vertical line that lead to an object. I feel that this was a good choice, yet I do wish that these leading lines direction the viewer's attention to a more dramatic subject.
Of course, this assignment taught me the purpose and necessity of lines. However, what was far more valuable that I learned from this lesson was not the importance of line, for that's obvious, but the way the search for lines. This concept will be immeasurably helpful.
Ironically, the aspect that I enjoy most about this image is the framing in the foreground. I truly feel that this gives the photo depth and a bit of dramatic flair. Still, I do enjoy the lines because I do feel that it automatically directs my eyes straight to the bicycle, which is the purpose of the lines.
Next time, I wish I could remove some of the distractions from the background and perhaps take off the lock that is barely perceptible on the very top of the rail. I feel that both these serve as distractions that detract from the subject of the photo.
