238th Show & Tell Competition: Perspective

Post Wed Jun 06, 2012 2:01 pm


The subject for the next contest is perspective. The idea is that the pespective from which the shot was taken has to add significantly to the image. In judging the results I'll be looking for different angles or compositions that tell a story and which wouldn't necessarily be obvious to the average person viewing the subject. Here are some examples.

This photo was taken in a rain forest where the entire forest floor was covered with millions of ferns. From this perspective the fern dominates the scene just as they dominated the landscape.



This image is the inside of a lighthouse. Back in the days before electricity the lightkeeper lived at the lighhouse in isolation and had to climb this narrow, clostraphobic staircase every day to service the whale oil lamp.



The worker was putting the finishing touches to the paintjob on the bottom of this shooner. The area that he had to paint was huge and must have looked like a daunting task when he first started. He looked so small sitting beneath the massive vessel.



OK, let's see what you've got!

Winning and Running a Contest
1. If you enter the Show and Tell Contest, please note the closing date and be sure to check back to see if you won.
