    Assignment #57: Near and Far

    On behalf of Assignment #55 winner, Mark (M_Six), I would like to announce Assignment #57: Near and Far

    According to Mark:
    I'd like the next Assignment to be called Near and Far. I'm looking for images with a subject or subjects that extend through the image and give a sense of depth. Shots like these can be created with UWA lenses, or tilt shifts, or just a narrow aperture. Even a good P&S shot can work. Here are some examples.

    Below are the selected finalists:


    Pat - Little Sable Point - Tough DR shot and mastered well. Plus it takes "near and far" to the extremes.




    Andy -Slioch and Boulder Field - Flawless use of the tilt/shift.




    JRW - Exactly what I had in mind for this assignment




    John - Columns - Like my bench shot, it follows a single object through the FOV. Nicely done.




    Arnt - ETs - Lots to like here. Nicely exposed, big DoF, very cool "UFO" trails.


    Congratulations to all the finalists!

    I used the 24mm tilt-shift for this shot of the mountain "Slioch" from a boulder field. The boulders are a few paces in front of the camera and the summit is nearly four miles away.

    Mossy Fingers reach through the frame here. I know it isn't quite the assignment but all I can find at the moment. I'll update today if I find something better.
