This exercise follows on from my last project for diagonals and looks at how curves can be used for composition.
In this picture, I have used curves to draw the eye to the subject point, the bell, which I have colour popped to help it stand out.
In this picture, I have used curves to draw the eye through the picture and the cars give added direction.
In this image I came across a convex mirror used for traffic safety and thought that the reflections of the cars that passed the mirror created a nice example of using curves for distorting an image creating an interesting angle of perspective and movement plus an almost 3D depth.
I wanted to find a good example of curves giving an impression of movement and I found it by chance in a lobby of a Hotel in Spain with the curves of the steel bands surrounding this steel statue of a dancer with ribbons. This photo was taken using just a small digital holiday snap-shot camera.
