Railway tracks provide an excellent subject with which to practice using leading lines in photography. If you can mix the obvious compositional advantages of the long lines with other good photography techniques, then you can get some great results. These photographs have largely managed to do that, many in an eye-popping way. So enjoy the collection and use it for ideas for your own leading lines shots.

    I’d like to show you my own photo work with tracks. Some of my favorite themes include motorcycles and trains. [img]http://chessiecat.smugmug.com/Other/Roan-Mountain-Bell-Cemetary/i-KCxjcTr/1/M/DSC15112763-M.jpg[/img]

    These are part of the abandoned tracks in Astoria, Or. The street car runs on part of it now.[img]http://www.flickr.com/photos/55851240@N04/5778725202/in/photostream[/img]
