+++++ Challenge 168: Curves +++++
Sep 29, 2011

The basic elements of design are points, lines, and shapes. Your challenge is to create compelling images that explicitly use one or more curved lines as design elements. Unlike straight lines, curves constantly change direction. Thus they can lead the viewer's eye, embrace part of an image, imply fast or gentle motion, set up a tension with other lines including the image frame, and so on. Curves are everywhere, doing their thing. Let's catch them in the act. Whether natural or manufactured, found or contrived, realistic or abstract. show us your curves.

The competition runs from Thursday, 29 September until 2100 GMT on Monday, 10 October. At that time the galleries will be closed and the voting will commence with a new thread. The winner in the competition gallery will host the next challenge.

Newcomers are totally welcome and encouraged to join the fun - Just post here if you need assistance to get images into the gallery or if you are not certain what's going on. We all started off clueless and make the same mistakes.

To post a photo in any of the galleries; just select the gallery of choice from below: Competition or Exhibition or Originals. On the top of the page you will see "edit this gallery", click on that and it will ask for a password. Enter "kickass" (don't ask, just keep it lower case) and you should be able to make it from there. If you still need assistance, ask and you shall be answered. Sometimes the answer is even the right one!

Add your name after the title (makes voting easier), and make the image 800 pixels or less on the long edge, no larger than 200kB. Pbase lets us run these challenges free on their website, so please respect this by keeping your file size reasonable. Ensure the EXIF data is intact for the competition, with the date it was taken.
