***Mini-Challenge #10: A Sense of Depth***

Thanks again to Kuvasauna for hosting the previous challenge and picking my slightly unusual entry as the winner.

I looked back at the previous challenges so far and I noticed that we haven't had many kind of "technical" type of photographic challenges in this series.

So I am very pleased to get the next mini-challenge under way: "A Sense of Depth".

I want to see entries that use a feeling of 3D. There are various ways that I know of to achieve the effect of 3D in a photo.

Here are a couple of my photos that I think in different ways manage to achieve this illusion:

Differential focus (I used some minor post-processing to enhance the effect):

Leading lines:

There are of course other ways to achieve the 3D kind of illusion.

How you achieve that "Sense of Depth" is up to you.

So - show me your best 3D type photos - and if you used any special technique(s) then please add a liitle info on this if you feel it is appropriate.

This is posted fairly late on 22nd Aug 08 - so let's run this until 24:00 hours GMT on 30th Aug (and that gives me a little spare time to judge the entries - I think it might be difficult!).

Have fun!
