Scale is an interesting concept as it’s an effect of you telling a story. Controlling perspective, and therein scale, it effects how we view the overall subject and it’s environment. From toy’s and Minnie Mouse to tilt shifts and forced perspectives we had a bit of everything this week. You guys did great!

Winners this week were chosen by Toby and Scott for the challenge.

You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s Instagram challenge #prtv_abstract. Usually we look for the subject and details then shoot to capture the object. Abstract photography is the opposite in that you don’t have a clear objective and it’s somewhat up to the viewer to decide the meaning of the photo. It’s a different way of thinking for those technical and detail oriented, playing to the more artistic side of things. To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_abstract.

I do wish the hiker was up higher – framed inside the brown, but still alovely image and a great use of scale

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

The little people make it work – what is that thing on the left side though?

Perspective. #prtv #prtv_scale

Scale in every meaning! Creative and beautifully executed, well done!

Scott’s Honorable Mentions:

I like the depth of field and the framing with Minnie Mouse off centre – nice work!

Two clear points of interest well framed. This one caught the eye scrolling through the feed, the colours especially are great.

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND

  1. Thanks for selecting my photo Toby! The thing on the left hand side is a small ‘igloo’ tent with three people sat by it. Unfortunately, although I uploaded the full width pano photo to Instagram, it has chopped off a fair bit on either side.
