#482- From Above
Posted By: BigDave, 01-01-2020, 07:43 PM

This starts us off for 2020, the number for perfect vision! Last time we looked up (for clouds). As photographers we may have a tendency to look out or up, but how often do we look Straight DOWN from a height. For this challenge, the viewing perspective has to be in a straight (or near so) downward direction, and from at least 10 feet (that's 3 meters to you folks not in the USA) WITHOUT using a drone! I present one image from the great Alfred Eisenstadt (the image of the Southern Catillion) , and two of my own as examples.

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

1. Post ONE photo.
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 be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
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
