Top Of The World

1/500 sec. f/11 ISO 100

This is a photo I took of my daughter yesterday while we were out enjoying the warm weather. I suppose it would be more accurate to say it's a landscape photo that happens to include my daughter. The hill wasn't as high as it appears in the picture. The combination of a wide angle lens and me shooting from ground level makes the distance appear more dramatic. Even as small as she is, the photo wouldn't be the same without her (or something) to draw the eye.

Great perspective and a smart move to have your daughter in the photo.

Nice perspective shot- and red was a perfect choice for clothing. I think any other color might not have had the same effect.

Not a landscape, it is a photo of your daughter who happens to be in a landscape! :) The subject of the photo is and should be her! Looks like you had a lovely day and oh my all the green grass! Am going to go now and see if deleting and re-adding your feed will fix itself, but those that want to find you will! LOL

Yes the hill looks quite steep .... Isn't it great to experiment with different angles.

Nice shot - it just shows you dont always have to have a subject close to the lens for a big WA shot.

Lots of symbolism in this photo, Brian. Love the story you've told with your camera.

Marja said...

I quite like it It's like she is on top of the world but being a small part of it

oh it really is a magnificent photograph Brian; nice to have that minute image of your daughter smack bang in the middle of the grassy horizon; great thinking and great result

I agree. Your daughter is the most important element in this photo.
