Weekly Challenge #168, A view from above WINNERS

Unfortunately I'm travelling very soon so will have to make this brief, but I'm happy a to have a lot of entries to chose from so thanks to everyone who entered, it wasn't easy to choose!

Anyway my winner is:



ramseybuckeye - I chose this one as you really get a feel for the expansiveness of the landscape with it, and also because it has the added benefit of the sheep itself taking in a 'view from above', so I feel you covered the theme on 2 counts!

And a special mention to everyone else, because it took me a while to decide!

Weekly challenge #167 - "A view from above"

I want to see shots from high vantage points of your subject(s) below...

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. I'm travelling at the end of next week so I'll close entries 12 June 2011 (British summer time) to give me time to complete the judging before I'm away.
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.
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.

I realise the main subject isn't the glass, but i took it this week and think the distorted windows make the shot more interesting!

It's my first time playing the judge/critic role so be nice!

My thoughts on your photos:

ramseybuckeye: I love the depth of field of this photo, and the point of view (it looks like you got a bit damp taking it!). The textures formed in the ice are also very interesting, as are the reflections on the water.

Iris A subtle use of reflections which I really like, as well as the composition.

jmschrei I understand your wish for a wider lens for the shot! The textures created are great, as is the contrast between them, and the monochrome does a good job of bringing them out.

Rense A very nice, simplistic image (as I've seen so many times from you on the forum!). I especially like the cold light of the outer world (and reflection) against the warmth of the building.

casil403 I love the patterns you've created here, and the reflections work brilliantly at bringing them out further! Fantastic in monochrome too.

bbluesman Again I love this, for the same reason as casil's shot. And the rendering of the colours is fantastic!

Tamia A very nice concept, and the slant work well!

jheu02 I love more abstract shots and this works well, so well I can't work out what the reflection is of!

eddie1960 The contrast between the water and the ice is very interesting, and the reflections work well.

Voytech This reminds me of my grandma's house! Very homely and warming with the familiar sights and the idea of security with the keyhole.

MikeS Everybody loves a good pentax shot! And excellent use of reflections, especially in the lens glass. And the bokeh highlights are great too, and very intriguing.

I like all of the photos entered, but being a competition it needs winners, so for the best use of reflections:

And my favourite's:

3rd Place


2nd Place


1st Place


Congrats all!

I love abstract photography, and some great examples in here! I always find myself out looking for patterns and curious oddities where you don't expect them.

Rense, big fan of your shot of the london eye.

I've posted some of these in other threads but I reckon they fit in here too!
