Weekly Photo Challenge #443: From Above
Posted By: jacamar, 12-13-2018, 06:43 AM

The challenge this week is to post photos taken from above the subject. I don't mean to include hilltop scenics (though that would make a good future challenge), rather shots taken with the camera pointing more or less straight down. I hope the examples below illustrate the scope of what I'm talking about, and that you will find lots of other interpretations. The challenge will close at Midnight on Thursday the 20th of December 2018 EST. Winners to be declared the following day.

The fine print:

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
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 one of them to select and be the judge for the next week's challenge.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used as well as P/S cameras.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Macros are my favorite especially of flowers. Motivation was for a SIC and the lens was a 50mm A f2, with Raynox adapter attached. I was trying to see how the pollen would come out in focus. And it did.

Straight down inside the flower.

I hope this qualifies - taken at an angle, but more or less straight down. Cheers, Christoph

That last one is just really scary to me. I do not do heights.

Abandoned, vacant Landmark Shopping Center, Alexandria, Va. (abt. 10mi. S. of Wash., D.C.).
I like interesting angles, textures, and the random nature of creeping decay.
(Not exactly "straight down", but pretty much down - taken from top floor of multistory parking deck structure.)

By late October, the South Saskatchewan River has almost come to a standstill. It is fed by meltwater in the Canadian Rockies and rainfall in the southern prairies, neither of which contributes very much this late in the year. Taken from the walkway of the "new" Traffic Bridge in downtown Saskatoon.
