Voted already and here is how I decided on my vote. Nice to see some new photographers! Please take all comments in good faith as ever.
Pretty colours, but not really any leading lines (now abbreviated to LL for ease).
No LL, just lots of horizontal ones. Quite like the colouring though.
I think this picture meets the challenge and is well executed. VOTE
I like the idea but maybe not the final picture. Would have cropped probably the top quarter. Meets LL imo.
I like the composition, I don't like the bright colouring though. You have good LL going into the picture to meet the train, but as the train is approaching it fights with the LL somewhat? Not sure. It holds the attention which is always good.
The rail LL lead you into the picture but what for? What should I be looking at? The sunlight shafts negate the LL a tad too.
I think LL has been well met, but your sky colour has let you down. Also those bright signs/rubbish bins fire hydrants to the right of the bridge detract from your final picture too.
Your LL lead me into the picture and out the other side and I haven't seen anything on the way. Look at TomTom Macute's picture as it is similar but there is something to look at. Yours has too much out of focus too. I envy you your trip to India though.

Nice one. I can't make my mind up whether the person should be a little closer to be more interesting or if you have it exactly right and your eye is led right into the picture to find him/her. VOTE
I don't think this meets LL myself. The main bit to look at is right at the front, the LL takes you away from the main object and out of the picture. As a composition I think it is too central and the bottom has been chopped off. There is a picture there but I'm not sure you got it for this month's theme.

Not one of my favourites of yours, it is more a picture of lines rather than LL, not keen on the colouring, though I'd guess the weather gave you a dull sky and you have perked it up somewhat (I'd have probably done the same!)
The LL challenge is met I think (eyes are led to the lake) but I'm sorry, as a photo it does nothing for me and was probably 100% better in real life.
Joint favourite for me for the month. Meets the LL challenge very well; colours and composition are great too. How to make a good picture from something not that interesting. VOTE
Nice picture and LL met. Just missed on a vote as the biggest (just off) centre light draws your eyes away from your LL.
Met the challenge well, but I would like to see something, or the hint of something, at the bottom of those stairs.
Nice picture of the tree but I really can't see any LL anywhere.

Perfect LL. But I don't get the whirly thing on the bridge, it is just "why?". If I was giving 4 more votes you would have got one of them though, along with workid, amnorrageordie and clyde.
Joint favourite with Steed's photograph. Good use of LL, well composed. Something in the water maybe? VOTE
Your leading lines were so good that they took me straight out of the picture and I never noticed what I was meant to look at!!
(PS Are they old fashioned bike racks?)
Tenuous LL I think. Too much of the picture is out of focus. Original idea.
Your eyes get suckered right in, and in this case I don't think it matters that there is nothing to look at at the end of the LL, the whole picture works.
Could easily have given 8-10 votes but have chosen just the four.
