****** Mini Challenge 381 - A Different View ******

Many thanks to Lionel for hosting the last Mini Challenge.

Our cameras give us the chance to see the world in a different way. We can freeze a moment in time or compress many seconds into a single image, capture a vast panorama or zoom in on a tiny detail. We can see in different lights or capture subtle variations of a single colour.

What I'm looking for is a different view on the world. It can be a tiny detail on a building only visible with a long lens, a crashing wave frozen as it tumbles, a 360 degree panorama of a busy street, the view straight down from a tall building, an infra red landscape or just about anything that makes the ordinary look extraordinary.

It's a wide subject so hopefully it will get your creative juices going.

I'll close the challenge at 12 noon BST on Monday 14th October and hopefully have the results up that night.

The usual rules apply:-

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but put them in a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone replies it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: *** Mini-Challenge xxx - ... ***" it would be very boring to scan the list.

Posting Guidelines

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

The host chooses the winner, and the decision is final. No matter what you say, the host is likely not going to change his mind after the fact. Remember, it's all about fun and learning.

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.
