For photographers, finding a vanishing point, or an implied vanishing point in nature or human-made environments can result in a very sharp compositional opportunity. While they are often found in long roads and tall buildings, the collection below shows that wherever they are, a good photographer can turn them into a powerful image. Share your own vanishing point photographs in the comments!

      Simon,
      Correct me, anyone, if I am wrong…
      I believe the vanishing point is that part of the image that seems to disappears or is inaccessible, at the very end of the leading lines.

    Just a suggestion to the moderators:

    It seems that a lot of people have been having problems with the location of the image. To my understanding, that’s because the Submit Comment is automatically appending the “/img” prefix to the URL which renders the URL invalid.

    Please, remove my previous submission with this error.

    Thanks.

    all of them are really good except for the 12th down I think with the fence. you can see where the fence curves and since it cu rves there isnt really any illusion to it or vanashing point. shouldnt be in this article. anywhere else that picture may have been beautiful but not here.
