Magnificently Distant Photos

We are all aware of the drama created by the extreme close-up photograph. So, what’s the opposite? That’s right! Something that is depicted far away. Both of these unique perspectives can create a dramatic photograph. Why? It forces us, as viewers, to recognize depth and perspective. These outstanding images of distant objects will help you to see how sometimes being “far away” is the “way to go”!

Eye Contact

A person’s eyes will often reveal their hidden thoughts and feelings. This is why it can be difficult for a photographer to capture the true essence of a subject’s eyes. We are all prone to wearing a mask, so that we don’t reveal our inner energy. These photographs have tapped into that “special something” that is occasionally revealed with the eyes.

The Beauty of People

The beauty is different through the eyes of the one who looks. There are people who have a certain type of beauty that you only notice at a closer look.

Rhythmic Images of Nature

Rhythm is defined as a regular repeated pattern with movement regulated by strong and weak succession. For the challenge titled, “Rhythmic Nature”, it was interesting to us how many photographers interpreted that concept as rays of light.
