Converging & Implied or Invisible Lines
It is a very powerful kind of leading lines. Two (Railway Track) or more lines (Ripples in Desert) converge to a point at infinity. Converging lines create one point or linear perspective and the sense of flow, depth and distance. Wide angle focal length enhances the impact of both converging and leading lines.
IMPLIED OR INVISIBLE LINES:
Implied or Invisible Lines – Lines are not always actual or visible. Such implied lines are suggested by the way the objects are placed within the frame.
About the image:
‘Pushkar Morning’ – It is very interesting to note that in this image sitting camel in foreground is itself acting as a diagonal line leading our eyes towards gossiping people with turbans, secondly the neck is also acting as implied semi circle line unifying sitting people and thirdly shadow on top of image is also suggesting horizontal line giving a boundary line to the people.So we have three major implied lines leading our eyes to the people.
