Another challenge I came across today is one from a blogger I follow on WordPress called Cee Neuner. Her photography challenge is Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: #21 Landscapes.
Keep your horizon level. We talked about this during our composition classes, but unless you want to give someone a headache or a queasy stomach, always level out your horizon. There are a lot of free applications out there that will help you with that.
Show perspective. Chris and I went to the Grand Canyon once and were really disappointed. It was a drizzly kind of a day, which flattened out everything we were looking at. There wasn’t anything in our line of sight to give us perspective, or depth to what we were seeing. It didn’t look like anything interesting. I know that sounds plain crazy, but when what you are looking at is so immense, if you don’t have a frame of reference, your brain just yawns and looks for something else to entertain it.
Here are my submissions for this week’ challenge.
Yosemite National Park
High Elms Country Park
