Leading lines draw your eye into the image and, because of their receding perspective, they can give the illusion of depth. Leading lines can be subtle too – in this case the diagonal lines implied by the car sides takes your eye towards the huts in the distance and the fact that those lines converge towards a point gives the eye a strong clue that this is from the 3D world.

It’s also an odd visual fact that ‘left to right’ is seen as stronger than ‘right to left’, possibly a cultural bias since we read left to right too. So, lines from bottom left towards the top right are slightly more compelling and dynamic than from the bottom right corner – subtle but true.
