    Thumbs up December Theme: "Into The Distance"

    Have you ever seen a drawing of a city with many buildings and streets, where the widest part of one street was the main focal point, and your eye was drawn from there and led off into the distance to the top of the picture where the street and buildings become smaller and smaller?

    Well, that's what our theme is for December, for instance, where the widest perspective is at the bottom and smallest is somewhere towards the top. Like a disapearing perspective.

    It can be anything you want...a winding (or straight) road or stream, flock of geese, swirls of paint, marbles on the ground, whatever. As long as the viewer is drawn from the widest perspective to the smallest perspective into the distance.

    The winner will receive a 1 gig zip drive, which can be seen here:

    I will be traveling cross-country starting the 6th, so will post the "post final entries here" thread when I get back.

    Have fun and see how creative you can get!!

    It can't be upside down?

    We want to give the impression that the viewer is looking from the closest perspective. I suppose if someone wanted to shoot a tornado, that wouldn't be from the typical perspective. So yes, it could be "upside down", sideways, etc.

    As long as we stick with the theme.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you would need a wide angle lens to create this effect?

    No, you wouldn't. We're not looking for a wide angle affect, just one where the widest perspective is at the forefront.

    I just pulled into statesboro, N.C. and don't have access to my computer. But here's just an example I pulled from my online album to kind of give you an idea. It's not a perspective of a long and winding road, but an object (Strad. violin) on a table.

    Great, we've got some good submissions so far.
    Here is another shot (St. Louis Arch) for example purposes only.
