    I did a #4 in my "Waiting for a Sign" series. I thought I'd be "creative" and do something a little different, but am having second thoughts...

    Upside Down...

    Or Rightside Up?

    Thanks Rog!

    That's what I had in mind, and where I was headed... But then the more I looked at it the more unsure I became. :confused:

    Gee RC, I don't know. I kinda like both ! I suppose it depends on where you are going with your series...as Rog said, unexpected is kinda cool... remember, the teacher always said, never cross out your first answer...it's probably right ! go ahead..step outside the box of the expected !:D

    Here are the first 3 in the series:

    http://www.mobitog.com/threads/waiting-for-a-sign.5568/

    Then this one, and the next one I was going to do the chair sideways on the left or right.

    So....now what do you think?

    My first reaction was for the right side up. But, the more I looked at them, I fell in love with upside down. I think your idea to add a sideways one would be a perfect addition!

    My vote is for upside down. With that perspective it makes you look at the picture. Both are really great!

    Can I go for neither? When I first looked at the 1st one, I didn't see an upside down chair. Somehow I saw a chair perfectly viewed from above - which is a fantastic angle for a chair like this! So can we have one viewed from above please? :)

    (And the 'above' angle reminded me heavily of the film 'enter the void', which is filmed 'from above' in large parts. Definitely not a family film, and definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but the filming is *stunning*. And let me just stress that 'not a family film' part ;))

    Very interesting concept.... I'm not sure how to execute it though... :confused:

    I'll have to check out the film. :)

    I guess you'd either need somewhere where you can place the chair and shoot unobstructed from above, or you need to tip that chair over to get the angle :) Sometimes you have to physically arrange a shot instead of trying to compose it in-camera.

    And on the film.. it's a great film I think, but very dark. Also quite beautiful at times. And at other times borderline pornographic. In fact I'd say it goes quite far over that particular border, and I'd be amazed if it hadn't been cut heavily in the UK! If you don't mind that it's worth watching purely for the camera work if nothing else, because the way it's filmed really is amazing.

    Well, this is the only view of the chair that I have. I saw the chair on the sidewalk in NYC and snapped it... ;)

    Should have taken it with you :D I have to admit, seeing a chair on the street, my own first thoughts wouldn't have been "I'll just scale the building to get a better angle"!
