The Narrow Way

Parallel lines moving through an image cam help to create interest in an image, because they draw the eye from the front of the image somewhere else. In reality the trail in this image does not get narrower as you walk down it, but thanks to the wonders of optical illusions it appears to in the image. When I say optical illusion I am refuting to the human eye, not the camera lens, which was at 50mm. I mention that because at 50mm the 24-70mm F2.8 lens used has almost no distortion itself. The tip of the day is, look for visual illusion and use them in your images to create interest.
