Photo Challenge Wednesday, Week 2

Photobucket


This week's challenge is about perspective. Without knowing that I would ever use these pictures for anything other than my Facebook profile picture, I took them in Texas. I don't think that sentence made sense, but you get the idea.

In this picture, you obviously are drawn to the name "NATALIE" (which is a great name, but not the topic of this particular post. Check back tomorrow). But you also see other distractions in the picture, that make it, well, messy.

But this one! You KNOW it is all about "NATALIE". And all I did was step to the side, and get close. Then I darkened the edges using Picnik.com, and ta-da.

Btw, it was my Facebook picture for about .5 seconds, and then I changed it. Because I can't make up my mind.

Now jump over to Beth's site to check out all of the challenge entries. And then have a great day.

nice showing how you changed the perspective. I like seeing both. Some times it really is just one step left or right or up or down.

I like the first one alot! It's kind of cool to see the other signs around the Natalie sign. The second one is amazing and I love how you darkened the edges!

Great capture!

I like both perspectives. They each show something different even though it's basically the same picture.

Yes! You did a great job changing the perspective - in fact the whole look of the picture. So impressive!

It's amazing what just stepping closer and to the side can do! I love that you posted all three so we can see the comparisons.
