Keep it all in –perspective. Just an hour ago.May 3, 2013 at 6:46 am #3975

Wow, you guys are getting good at this photography business. Like the look of all the shots so far. Not sure I’m up to this but I hope to have a go later.
Can I thank all of those who contribute to the Forum for making it an interesting place to visit and adding a new dimension to our website and club, we can’t be accused at CPS of being stuck in the club groove of prettifying pictures!May 3, 2013 at 9:56 am #3979
More inspiration about intriguing perspective illusions here:May 3, 2013 at 7:16 pm #3984
I see Ken’s cleverly got two types of perspective in one picture. The shadows help as well.
More interesting shot from Ian. The top shot would have been totally different if a train had been in the frame, but would have helped?
I like the shapes in the second shot. I’m slowly learning to look at your pictures in a different way Ian. Is the last shot all about the radiating lines from the lower left into the frame or have I missed the point?May 3, 2013 at 8:23 pm #3985
Peter said, “I like the shapes in the second shot. I’m slowly learning to look at your pictures in a different way Ian. “
How do you mean, Peter? (I don’t think I should guess what you have in mind when you say “look at your pictures in a different way”!)
I suppose the idea behind the photo comes from Stephen Shore, who often talks about the way that translating the three-dimensional space of the real world on to the two-dimensional plane of a picture creates relationships between things in the picture that don’t exist in the real world. The jokey version of this appears in the perspective illusions shown in the Daily Mail article I gave the link for. But Shore uses this “point of view” effect much more subtly in many of his pictures, such as the one I linked to in the second post in this thread: http://is.gd/SlhHb1
Is the last shot all about the radiating lines from the lower left into the frame or have I missed the point?
Yes, that’s right – I shot this image in portrait format, but was intrigued by how much more interesting it was when rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise!May 3, 2013 at 10:05 pm #3988
Ian, correct me if I’m wrong, but I think when you look at a scene you don’t just look at the subject matter, you look at the shapes, lines and tone. This seems to be more important in some of your pictures than the subject. The skill is in getting the subject to become a compositional element. Is that the idea? By the way thanks for the links. They show it’s all about the way we look and see.May 3, 2013 at 10:56 pm #3989
Peter >>> Thanks for explaining. Yes, now you mention it, I think you’re right about the way I approach a picture. I guess I am as interested in the relationships between the elements in the image as I am in the actual object(s) depicted. And I do try to pay attention to the geometry within the frame (not always very successfully!).
Glad you found the links useful. 🙂May 4, 2013 at 9:35 am #3993
Clouded Iron—blue and green should never be seen so its said – but what a restful picture ‘ turn it anyway and it always looks good. A good 3d subject’s ‘ one shot then small right step for second ‘ process two images in SPM and be amazed.May 15, 2013 at 12:59 pm #4124
Had a look at my recent images from the Bank holiday and found this which I hope fits the brief.

And a couple of more normal ones.

OVER THE TOP 2.May 15, 2013 at 1:23 pm #4126
I very much like the floating little girl in the first one, and the vertiginous angle of the ride in the second. Exciting stuff!May 15, 2013 at 1:26 pm #4127
Love the bouncy slide the tree shadow is good and adds to the feeling of pushing the eye upwards.But the two others are crackers,for perspective they’re spot on. Prefer the second one as the crop is tighter. The colour in both are popping. Maytime in Britain don’t you just love it.
