“Planar lines that wind, wend and soar through a image’s field of focus.  Curving components within a photograph give the image depth, allowing the viewer’s eye to move through the frame almost effortlessly.  It is almost as if the photographer takes the viewer by the hand, draws them into the frame, and points the way. The viewer’s eyes are compelled to follow the line of the curvature.  Darkroom Gallery is calling for images that possess this curvy compositional trait.” –

“In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.” –Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
