The lines are very powerful resource composition in photography, you did not know I highly recommend you read this article if you want to continue taking steps in photography and participate in the challenge with a great shot. Well this week the challenge is lines, but not just any type of line, but curved lines.

And here you have the curves of this week, to make you dizzy ... with excitement! Of all these wonderful photographs, today I want to highlight the one by José Rodríguez, «Final Destination Coca Cola». This is an example of intentional error photographs that work, or at least for me. The jitter of the image is a way of promoting movement, which with that very powerful curved line, which also forms an "S", is magnified even more . It is a photograph of pure speed, which makes you vibrate almost as if you were on this roller coaster. I love the effect that the red color gives, the only protagonist along with the curves, which does nothing more than give strength and character to the movement. I told you, hold on, curves are coming ... well here they are Congratulations José! And be aware that there is a new challenge tomorrow and this time very special!
