May challenge - WORM'S EYE VIEW

Recommended Posts

Thanks again Colin for setting April's challenge ! 

 

This month, I would like to see your images taken from a "WORM'S EYE VIEW". Pictures taken from below, from a low angle. Could be for composition purposes, to accentuate perspective or to make the subject look taller, or mighty… whatever.

 

Here are 3 examples:

 

seattle--the-needle-and-sonic-bloom-e7r6

Urban / architecture

 

dropkick-murphys-performing-live-e4rjnr.

Concert / people

 

magnolia-heptapeta-denudata---yulan-magn

Nature…

 

Now the rules:

  • Maximum 3 images per contributor, as usual
  • Images must be available on Alamy
  • Challenge will end on May 31st at noon (12:00 London time)
  • The winner will start the new topic.

I hope you will enjoy this one and I am sure we will see a lot of great images again this month !

Oddly enough, all three were taken in my own garden.  Definitely local shooting.

Nice submissions already.

As Davey I will have to think - there is some lack of this theme in my portfolio.

Very imaginative choice of topic. Coincidentally, I just uploaded this one a couple of days ago. It's an "upcycled" sewer pipe BTW.

Thanks for this subject "WORM'S EYE VIEW" Olivier.

 

​I see my collection is sadly lacking in this respect, must go out and get some.

 

Some great images here already.
