Table Mountain in South Africa is Flat, well Kinda Flat....

 

My one tire was a little flat. And I live in a Flat.. if that makes sense.

ps... next topic should be a fun one to make people think a bit.... I think the next topic should be Frozen in Time :)

 

We can get those super fast shutters going, and get some drops in mid air, some birds frozen in flight, maybe even hadouken or levitation photography?

 

This should be a fun year!

I dunno, if a theme as simple as "Flat" stumps the ###### out of people .... :laugh:

Says the one who just laid something on the floor and took a picture of it? :laugh:

 

Flat isn't a very exciting photography concept because flat makes a boring picture most of the time. Given plenty of time, I'm certain we could find quality "flat" photos, but it's not a concept I'd frequently find pictures that conform to. If I still lived in Oklahoma, I'd have some awesome landscape opportunities, but around here there isn't much that's flat, haha.

Actually I had a much better idea planned out. I just needed someone to help me with it. I'll give more details on what I was going to do in the voting thread.

Annoyingly the only times I now have available to shoot are weekends and evenings. Leaves me a bit limited in what I can do, especially with the weather lately...

I really need to participate myself in these things.

Hmm... still haven't come across anything for flat other than just taking a picture of the hardwood floor or something, haha. 2 more days, huh? I'll keep looking!

This is the most decent theme in the history of Neowin's photo challenges and no one is responding :/

 

There's an entire photography history around the concepts of flatness, frontality and silence (Quite near equivalents in photography).

 

:/

Flatness - no one said flatness - the topic just says "Flat" - of course we could have had amazing pictures with flatness....

 

Who do we blame for such a great mistake in the definition of the topic...

 

O the horror....

 

No wonder no one was interested....

 

Guess we missed out...

Can't say my imagination is stirred by the topic but good on the guys who have made an entry.

Really that interesting and where would your entry be? :shiftyninja: (sorry had too).

 

 

:( Living in third world country means waiting 1 week for courier so i'm afraid i'll be missing out this one.  I've got a slight idea of what I wanted to do, maybe i'll try with my phone tonight.

I think sanctified nailed it, problem is to many people think to literally in terms of definition I guess.

I wasn't taking it literally, I just can't think of interesting to shoot that's flat or has anything to do with flat or flatness. I thought about taking a picture of a flat tire, but that didn't sound interesting. Or flat colors, which I don't know of any to take pictures of, or flat objects which mostly seem boring to me unless it's just a show of DOF or something... I dunno. I could take all kinds of plain old boring flat pictures, but I've gotten very picky about my photography and won't post anything I don't really like. *shrug*

 

I was kind of hoping to see some interesting entries to perhaps give some ideas. Actually, I just had the idea of using the lake down the road if the water was really smooth but I can't make it in time now, it'll be dark every time I have a chance to go today or tomorrow. Ahh well.
