Theme : “Long”
Photo by Bob Bird
Canon Power Shot G12, F4.5, 1/20, ISO 1250
Bob has successfully captured a subject that is indeed very long. But he’s done more than that. He’s also managed to create a sense of distance through the perspective.
The vantage point has given him a slightly off-center image, which can work very well for a sense of distance. The arches tower above the cafe dwellers which enhance a sense of height and space.
We are lead in to the image very quickly by the dome shaped ceiling, that in fact, creates some very interesting leading lines. The repetition of the pattern in the roof and pillars either side of the long walkway adds to a sense of distance.
Bob has done a great job in giving us a sense of the end of the arches being a very long way off. The length works very well to support the overall meaning of the image.
Well done Bob.
