Default Lower Point of View -- How Low Can You Go?

Here are a couple shots, both archive, with a very low perspective.

In the first, I laid down on the ground amid this clump of trees and shot straight up.


In the second shot, I set the camera on the ground and took several shots at different angles. This was one of the better ones. This is an abandoned section of track!


Enjoy,
Cal

I like me some birch trees! I took almost the exact perspective train track photo about two month ago and thought, "This must be what it looked like when you saw those damsels tossed over the tracks in the old silent b&w films of the 30's."

I like the first shot. The second, I believe the camera can't go much lower. It's a nice perspective but the camera is not pointing up...it's pretty much straight.

I just went back and reread the challenge and you are correct. My initial interpretation was any shot taken low to the ground or floor. I missed the shooting up part. My bad! LOL!

My first thought was the same as Cal - I took several pictures today at dandelion flower level or a little below. But not enough lower to be looking up at the flower (considering how low they grow, it's very difficult unless you pick it). Back to the viewfinder...

P.S. I really like the second one, to me it's quite unique. I often take pictures of trees looking up, so while the first one is very well done, it's not as different/interesting to me.
