The Circus Comes To Town
Photo: Dan Highton (Canon EOS 5D)
Bonny Peterbuilt that.
Bit of a steep hill it was on.
Nice that Dan. Love the angle and the vignette :)
Excuse me Dan, far be it from me to comment, but were you drunk when you took this pic. I don't understand the angle. Mind you it's 6.30 pm in Vancouver, I could be the one who is drunk. Good truck though Peterbilt are the best.
Dan was you stood with one leg in a hole when you took this photo.
lol no not drunk, or stood on one leg, just wanted to try a different angle from the norm :-) I think Dave has got it....
Makes me feel giddy!
Nice shot Dan, good to see something creative, nice jaunty angle and vignette.
Dan; Can`t see any sense in this angled photo. When put in Windows Photo Gallery you can`t make it level but it looks a bit better uphill i.e by rotating 90 deg.clockwise.
A.W. if you are feeling a bit queasy you could look at this:
but Dan's photo is better!
Was it a U.S.A. Circus
Well I like the angle of this. It's a nice change and very artistic.
The bright colours of the truck and Big Top stand out against the grey January sky. Well done, Dan!
It seems to have caused a mix of opinion today :-) For a more "normal" view I also have this pic... http://www.woodgreenstudios.com/p836725440/e2b8e2093 and yes, it has had some HDR treatment :-)
It`s super colouful picture but its not done ny neck any good!
I think I go along with Janice's comment. Nice to see something different.
In answer to Anne's question - "Circus Vegas is an American Circus touring the UK. It has no animals. It is full of fun filled acts from around the globe suitable for all ages." (Facebook)
A striking photo, thanks, Dan :o)
A stroke of genius really. With that angle the lights on the pole would never fit in the frame unless taken from a long way off. But then the truck would not have the same impact.
I love this picture! The subject merits an unusual angle and that and the colours suggest the circus very strongly to me! I will add an extra and maybe uncalled-for comment that one of my own photo favourites was one of the Tower of London taken at a similar angle,which I made on a visit with my daughter in the 1980's. We came across it recently, -my daughter said "Yes, this was a great shot, even though at the time I thought you were a little crazy to do it!"
Your different approach paid off big time Dan....I like it.....cheers!!!
Thanks for all the comments and opinions. It just goes to show how one photo can be seen differently from person to person and it's what makes this hobby so interesting.
I hope our wedding photos don't turn out scuwifft.
What a nice change for a shot
I've always thought what a hard way this is to earn a living along with the fair people.
constantly putting up equipment and lighting and the taking it all down again and moving on to the next town unable to put down any roots.
they have to be admired
