CHALLENGE No.1 – PERSPECTIVE
The art of representing three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth and position in relation to each other.
Thank you for all the wonderful entries in this challenge, it was difficult to choose a top 3 so you can imagine the toil we had in choosing the overall winner. So with out further ado.
Our first winner is…………………..
Congratulations to Simon Blackbourn with his photograph of Paignton Pier, Devon. Taken with his Noon 66.
This epitomises what pinhole photography is about with the heavy vignette and the traditional look. The image itself is very well composed with great leading lines and the movement of the flag stops the image from becoming static. Reminiscent of a scene from a Hitchcock film.
We now look forward to Simon coming up with the next theme.
