    I've been notified that Aviation is gone for the weekend, so I'm going to throw this up to keep them going.

    Rules:
    Playing this tournament is simple:

    A tournament involves 11 different members max.
    The winner of the last tournament will give a theme, and those who want to participate will post their pictures (Only one per person). Please, No more than eleven participants total.

    When all participants have entered their picture in the tournament (please submit a link along with your picture), I will then create another thread to vote on the pictures via a poll. Located in the Off Topic sub forum.

    New Rules:
    - No spot saving; you will only be counted if you have a picture submitted.
    - Only one picture may be posted at a time, if you decide to change it, please edit the original post.
    - No posting an image that has previously won a competition.

    So in brief:
    - Users who wish to participate please post your image within this thread followed by a link to the image source.
    - After eleven participants have entered the tournament, a second thread will be made with a poll to vote on the pictures.
    - If entering a slightly computer manipulated photo, please post the original along with it so users who are voting can see the difference.

    Winners will simply be the one who gets the most votes. He/she will then create another thread in which they propose a different theme for the next tournament.

    Please resize your pictures to no larger than 1280 x 1024.
    This tournament will have 4 days of voting.

    You are permitted to change your image but if you could just change the URL in your original post and leave an edited comment with it.

    hummm, I don't think I have anything for this one.

    Also just in case some people might not know what leading lines mean. I though I'd include an explanation.

    Although depending how you look at it, it could be trailing lines.
    EDIT: After a cool suggestion. Rotated photo to hopefully give more of a lead in to the main focus. Better Bob ?:)

    It could work if you have nothing more suited that would be preferred. Just from my point of view the lines don't really lead me to anything in the photo, more just through the photo.
    You could always rotate the photo :cool:
    Yup, that one Photo Tournament Poll: Dirt/Grime

    I don't see how that is a leading line, it doesn't lead anywhere. A leading line is suppose to draw the viewing to a part of the image of interest.

    well i thought the bridge brought it towards the tree. there's several in here where i dont exactly see what they were going for, but i thought this would work. if it doesnt, then dont use it.

    You're right, there are several that can be interpreted differently, mine as well :) It's not his call so leave it to the OP to decide. ;)
