P52-9-2 - Technique: Diagonal Lines
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 02-16-2020, 05:05 PM

2nd week theme is 'Technique: Diagonal Lines'.
Previously it was an sub-Landscape theme, but as it's an universal technique lets not stick just to landscapes with it.

Few references:
Project 52 - 4 - 26 Landscape - Diagonal lines
P52-3-48 - Landscape - Diagonal lines
People Diagonal
Diagonal Leading Lines in Photography
How Diagonal Lines Add Direction and Dynamics to Your Photos

Photos for the Week #2 competition are to be taken between Feb 17, 2020 and Feb 23, 2020.

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-5 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable

My New Year's resolution was to make time for something like this challenge, to go out and take photographs on a regular basis with a purpose in mind.

Diagonal LInes
The dead tree is straight up and down, until I tilted it with my superior photographic skill. The lines in the cirrus clouds above added another layer of diagonality.

Sorry the "judgement" has been delayed. I agonized over what criteria to use. I offered to recuse myself as formal technique is something I only use to brag about my shots if I cannot find a real reason. Anyway, the "Master" of this contest said go head an be subjective or whatever. So, blundering ahead, I liked all the photos and being a guitarist at one time I was emotionally grabbed by the strings. Trees and grain elevators on the endless prairie are great examples of the theme. Noelcmn gave a laugh by submitting just "under the wire." I hope that idiom translates outside the US. I have chosen RGlasel as winner for the complexity of lines that I noticed upon looking closely at what is a nice shot in total. In particular the bush/tree in the lower right corner, which I would have removed in editing. provides another diagonal to lead the eye back when it catches your eye. Second place goes to everyone else.
