The Line 1.3 (1)

Take a number of shots using lines to create a sense of depth. Shooting with a wide angel lens (zooming out) strengthens a diagonal line by giving it more length within the frame. The effect is dramatically accentuated if you choose a viewpoint close to the line.

Line is one of the most basic visual elements to a photograph, they serve many purposes in the composition. They divide the image, they can direct the viewers eye to specific points within the image, they can create shapes and they can make a statement to influence a particular emotion or feeling within the image.
