Looking down


Nikon D70 @ 10mm, 1/100 sec, f/4, ISO 200

One of the few shots I took this weekend. I wanted to experiment with a slightly unusual composition/angle for this one. Does it work? I think so, but only just...

Great shot, John. The brown earth tones really work well here. The angle does work, it's very first person here and raw. Great shot. Regards, Brent

Hi John,

nice shot, in my TT. But seriously, it looks a bit like a scene from some very serious movie, a heavy mood breathes from the concrete and steel structures. I try to cover up my photographic crash course by doing a bit of pinholing. Very soothing and it's art right away ;-)

Keep shooting baby.

I think this angle and distortion work fine for me. The lines within the whole picture seems coherent, the viewer is led to two specific places; the top or the bottom of the stairway. This angle positions the fence nicely to enclose the viewer's perspective to the centre of the photo.

The overall treatment is great and matches the whole feel from the walls to the litter on the stairs.

I love the angle here. It's something you don't see every day. And I also have to agree with Erusan, because this is a very gritty image.

Works for me. The super wide angle really gives that convergent feeling, and they all converge on the subject which is the door - so, yeah, works great.

5 stars. (out of five of course).Great detail and the picture seems to tell a story.

Interesting how the lines seem to take you everywhere in the image except the centre.

I'm agnostic about the subject and the colours but like the effect of the lines on the image structure a lot.

An excellent observation of potential and a nice execution.

In my eye you nailed it.

It gives me a sense of motion sickness when I look at it. Does that count? hehe. It's pretty cool though.

No, I think it's good, not 'just'.
