Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

Texas State Capitol Papa and Baby CThis week’s photo challenge is about contrasts. The pictures I’m using show two different kinds of contrast.

In the first one, I used my photo editing software to bump up the contrast and saturation to enhance the striking difference between the deep colors of the trees and the facade of the building.

The second picture is of Baby C and his great-grandpapa, one life at the beginning and the other nearing the end of a long and very productive time on this earth.

A Photo a Week Challenge: From Above

It’s amazing how different things can look depending on our location. This week’s challenge is to find a unique perspective from above. This was taken at the State Capitol Building in Austin, Texas. We were on the fourth floor of the rotunda and looked down to the crowd milling around on the main floor.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE TAKEN FROM ABOVE YOUR SUBJECT.

Have fun experimenting with heights and different angles.  Then blog them and post a link to your masterpieces here.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
