Our local photography club has competitions run each month and this month the subject is "dramatic viewpoint" mean from a different viewpoint or angle. Do you think this shotwould apply, it's a plant shot from directly overhead.

Wow! Have you colored that image since you first posted it. I like the earlier one better.

Anyway, to answer your question, I don't think so. A straight down shot of a flower is probably one of the more common views. Unfortunately, a straight down shot does not reveal as much detail as a side-angle or a shot looking up. I don't know if the flower or others like it still exist, but I would try shooting from a low angle for a more dramatic view. If the flowers are gone or you don't have time, I would submit your original picture.

Just being different again. When shooting something round I think this is the best view. I like the photo. Don't forget, only 2 responses here. Print it and show it around to other photo types for feed back.

I really liked your fruit on a light table. Improve on that one as it's definately a different angle.

That doorknob shot is fantastic. It gets my vote.

I like the plant one for this exercise, mainly because the viewpoint IS different, you dont normally look at plants on an everyday basis from a lying down position. The aim of the competition this month is to see things from a different viewpoint. I can submit the two though.

If you use the door knob don't forget to straighten the horizon line (or in this case the screw attach thingies). It's by far the more unusual angle.

By straightening it the doorknob seems to get cropped too much, I will crop the photo after I print it and when it is framed in cardboard.
