200th Salon Competition - Low Perspective

Welcome to the 200th competition in this series!

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon. The 200th Competition

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

The salon competition ends at midnight GMT on 7th of March 2016.

I don't recall this theme being run before so let's try Low Perspectives. I've always found it put a very different viewpoint on photos. Let's see what you can come up with. Here are a couple of examples.

"Alice? Alice? Is that you?" or "Through the Looking Glass"




Not usually a fan of colour pop, but thought this helped draw the eye.

Re: 200th Salon Competition - Low Perspective

I was looking for the "camera on the ground" perspective and I think Kurt's Queen Street Bath really exemplifies that approach. The reflection of the lights on the wet cobblestones really adds a lot.

So, over to you Kurt!

Re: 200th Salon Competition - Low Perspective

Thank you very much for the bitter-sweet choice of my image. Sweet, because it is feels good when someone likes your work, bitter because I have to think up a new subject! My thinking cap is on!
