Challenge #138: Perspective: From The Ground Up

Wide angle shots looking up at tall buildings are a very common perspective, from the ground up shots. Your challenge is to find a unique perspecitve looking up.


Challenge Starts: NOW

Challenge Ends: Sunday, June 27th @ 7 PM server time.

The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread, and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera will do or a Samsung DSLR.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.

That balloon shot is brilliant! Nothing like setting the bar high (pun intended)

Thanks Joe. It was teathered to the ground so I did have to clone out one rope.

I thought this portrayed an interesting perspective with the reflections off the glass.

A unique perspective on cycling along a pretty road on a sunny day. The orange of a bright jersey is reflected under the cyclist's chin.

Looking up to the roof covering the open space between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 at Munich Airport. I has to place the camera between the two pylons for this shot.
Tripods are normally not allowed - we had special permission that day.

The pylons lead the eye to the roof. There you can see a juxtaposition between open space on the right (the sky) and limited space on the left (roof). I also like the symmetry of the construction elements.

Technical information: K-7 with DA 12-24/4 @ 24mm f8

Sundial bridge. It was there, and I went to see it.
