While waiting for James and Michael to finish work so we can go eat I decided to try to find some ‘diagonals’ around the viaduct. As I figured it’s a lot easier to find those than something that is interesting from both a ‘high’ and ‘low’ viewpoint. I found 3 such images, the first of which is a ‘natural’ diagonal of some cones sitting on the side of the road. Unfortunately they aren’t entirely straight and there seems to be a natural curve in the difference from the top and bottom of the curves. I tried to get a better shot but it turned out to be quite difficult. Still, the shot is interesting enough for the assignment.

The second is of the Wilson’s carpark sign. I was going for the contrast in colours between the sign and the background which I got but the depth of field at f4.0 screwed up the far edges of the sign. But again, a good enough diagonal shot to count for the assignment.

Finally, a fake diagonal (by tilting). Hardly an original shot but the colours were interesting and the full black sky makes for good contrast. Not tack sharp but meh…

Yay, you fixed the smilies! :-)
I still like the diagonal shot of the sky tower that you find unoriginal…
