Horizontal Lines in Photography

All lines send a message to our human brains. Horizontal lines have a specific message they send. Keep that in mind when you have horizontal lines in your photography they speak these words to your viewer:

Stability Calmness
Permanence Rest
Timelessness Divide
Anchor Dependable
