Default New challenge - Nov 27-Dec 10 --A New Slant or Holidays

This is actually two challenges in one. First, "A New Slant" refers to the overall photo orientation. We all try our best to get our photos "straight" even tweaking them in the photo editor. That is good...most of the time. However, there are times or settings when straight might not be the best treatment of a subject.

There are many cases when a diagonal or slanted view presents a much more powerful image. This is especially true with simple subjects or still life shot. Now, I don't mean slightly tilted. I mean 30-45 degrees. A good guideline for this type of shot is to line up opposite corners of the viewfinder with the vertical axis of the subject.

Experiment with this concept and show us what you come up with.

If you don't feel brave enough to put a "New Slant" on your photos, then show us photos of holiday activities. There are many different religious holiday celebrations this time of year. Show us what the holidays mean to you.

Please put either A New Slant or Holidays in your subject line.

Have a great holiday season and by all means be safe.

Today at first I made tilted images where the tilt only detracted from the subject. Then I progressed to 2 cliches of image tilt. There are 8 more days, maybe I'll find more cliches or move beyond cliche. I'm finding this to be a tough challenge. Thanks!
