108th Show&Tell Competition: Within a 5 mile radius

Post Sat Dec 27, 2008 11:37 am


I decided on the topic, Within a 5 mile radius inspired by the comments made by Ken on the winning image, "The image also represents how much beauty can be wrested from the mundane; a crowded street in a typical residential section of a city or town. This could be taken anywhere." Within 5 miles of my home i can go from suburbia to seascape, industrial to sprawling countryside and from historical to modern. Each city, town or village has it's characters too, so include these in your images. Pretty much an open subject, anything goes as long as the image is shot within a 5 mile radius of your home. In judging the images, composition, unusual points of view, atmosphere, emotion, and imagination, these are things i like in an image, and will look for in final judging. Looking forward to seeing what's within 5 miles of your home. Enjoy :-)

A couple of examples :
An image from one of my bedroom windows.
Image

A canal walk just a stones throw away from home.
Image

4 miles from home a walker striding along the sands at low tide in Morecambe Bay, with the lake district nestling in the background.

How are you going to validate the 5-mile radius? People could geotag their images...

So let me see...we use kilometres, not miles, but I can convert.

This photo was taken within 200 metres from my home, that means (I hope...) 0.1 miles.
:wink:




This one was taken around the corner, I'd say 0.06 miles from my house door.



and with the third one we take a "long distance trip" since we move 1.864113576712 Miles from my home!!!!
The photos is taken in a very small village very close, where we go often for a walk or for a coffee




Best wishes to everyone
