    I don't know if tree trunks, branches, and shadows can technically be called "lines", well I guess the edges might be. Anyway, this is one of my favorite photos.

    @Mittineague: I love the softness of that picture. It would also have gone well with the "moods" topic we had. Very nice.

    I found this one I took last summer:

    I have always been intriqued by the lines created by shadows.

    Yeah, I agree. I like the depth that it creates in your shot.

    This was more an artifact of the optics in the low-priced digital camera, but I caught an interesting effect here.

    Finally! I get some time to post a pic... I've got more but I want to see if we can revive this thread before the end of the month so I'll space them out for you.

    A simple study of lines:



    And yes of course I had to try very hard to make the mug look like that !! for the effect!

    This is only remotely related to the thread topic but I just had to post it because it is so cool ! Please forgive me.


    This is the smoke plume dissipating after the Space Shuttle launch on March 15th as viewed from my front yard.
    I just love the orange tinge in the middle - which I can only assume is the setting sun as it reflects off the smoke.
    I captured HD video of the launch (from this perspective) and will post it on one of my personal sites soon.
    PM me if you wish to be notified with that URL when I get it posted.

    I wonder how many cups of coffee you had to drink.
    Amazing you were able to keep the camera still when you finally got this shot!
