    Assignment 21: Unique Perspective WINNER: freelanceshots



    UPDATE: freelanceshots won the "Unique Perspective" contest. He should now contact Jan to arrange the next assignment's topic.





    Congratulations to Nick (nvitalephotography) for winning assignment 20. He has selected for this assignment "Unique Perspective.





    In his own words:


    For this assignment I
    propose a subject (broader than the last few assignments) of unique
    angles/perspectives.<span> Its easy to go out
    and photograph familiar subjects in the same way and then end up having many of
    them have a very familiar feel to them.<span>
    So go out and climb a ladder, get down on the ground, show us something
    that makes us all say &ldquo; wow,<span> I never
    thought of photographing that subject like that.&rdquo;





    Submissions will be open till May 22.


    Please include EXIF data if you have it!


    If you want to put more than one picture up please specify which will be your official entry into the assignment. Otherwise we will assume that it is the first picture in a post.





    Thanks!


    And now, the finalists:
    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]The tower by Adrian Mandea


    [img]/image_presentation1/resized-image.ashx/__size/633x900/__key/CommunityServer-Discussions-Components-Files/26/4075.babel.jpg[/img]
    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]motivation: I love the symmetry of this photo and love how the tower is silhouetted against the sky.
    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]

    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]The model by TakahiroW4047

    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]Motivation:
    this shot looks so natural and pleasing that it wasn't initially
    obvious to me that is was photographed from a unique angle and that's
    why I think this unique perspective is so great.

    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]The staircase by freelanceshots
    <p class="MsoNormal"]<span style="font-size: 11pt; color: #1f497d;"]
    Motivation:
    It seemed like many peoples interpretation of this assignment was to
    get low and photograph the subject looking up. This is probably my
    favorite of those.

    Motivation:
    I think this one captured the idea of the assignment perfect. Its a
    very unique shot and I would have never thought of photographing a fly
    like this.

    I would have like to get a shot of you swinging on that chandelier.


    Or is she sitting in a little ledge?

    Did you use a ladder or tall tripod and a TS-E 17mm f/4 lens?
