Challenge #211 - From the ground.
This week's challenge will take you lower than you've ever been before without snorkeling or scuba diving. Explore the perspective your G will give you from the ground. Your subject matter can be anything on the ground or above the ground, as long as the perspective is from the ground. Get ready to combat crawl, slide on your kids' skateboards, shoot from the shoe, slide on that thing on wheels used under the car when you are fixing it, to get that perfect shot from the ground, and have fun! Thanks for joining this week's challenge. ~Pic

The placers for this week are:

1. Macroshot's: Giant mantis conquers world! Or garden...
Macroshot: I really enjoyed this one for many reasons; great angle, great timing, cool colors through processing (did you use the IR setting or what?) cuz mantis looks like he's made of glass, and it's just a cool from the ground shot, thanks for sharing!

and tied for 2-3rd: Maureen's "What are you doing down there" is just a sweet image all the way around. Like the twisted angle too.

and Kevan-g9s Awful Taller. This one struck me as quite a photo in it's own right from the striking colors captured, to the clarity of a night shot, and the angle from underneath, it is just stunning!
And I could go on and on an on!

It was another difficult chore to chose just three, I enjoyed seeing what came up this week, thanks so much for taking part. I am in a rush this evening and don't have time to comment full on everyone's, but they are all cool, and I love looking at the world from the ground up, thanks for sharing your interpretations! :D
