Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

Playing catchup with the Photo Challenge this week. Here’ the challenge for last week!

From Brian Cooney, photographer and guest host of the Photo Challenge on “Near and Far.”

Near and Far. We’re excited about this week’s photo challenge, near and far, and hope it inspires you to play with perspective, which can give sweeping images of beautiful locations more oomph and power. Perspective is what makes a flat two-dimensional image, such as a photograph, appear like it is three-dimensional. To create this effect, you can use features like diagonal lines, which converge within the frame and literally suck in the viewer.


And, here is my photo for near and far. This is a scene from the Mississippi River Delta in southern Arkansas. I love the way both the power lines and the clouds seem are headed toward the horizon, seemingly never ending.
