Leading lines contest congrats

Contests_125_THU_SQ.jpgNikonians Contest Coordinator David Summers (dm1dave) has posted the results of the Best of 2014 Contest Segment 2. The theme was "Leading Lines."

Congratulations to Joshua A. Williams (Kidsthehall45) from Chicago, USA, with his winning image titled Two-Toned S-Curve.

Win-2-tone-s-curve_350.jpgHere the the summary comment from our judges: 
"We feel that the bisecting road leading into the image creates a wonderful play of light and color with the cityscape beyond illuminating the clouds above in an artificial glow. 
The horizon line further divides the image into hard and soft elements. Given the dramatic composition, vibrant color and strong leading lines terminating visually at the city, this image is a prime example of what the theme 'Leading Lines' is all about."
