Arrow Photo Challenge #33 ~ Get Vertical {5-4-09}

I was reading recently in a photo book at the book store how the majority of photos taken by most people are horizontal and since cameras are designed to take horizontal photos, most people don't think to even turn their cameras vertical. I know a lot of you have posted some vertical photos but I thought this would make for a good challenge, and get us more practice with vertical shots and comfortably using them. Vertical photos tend to work best with objects that are taller then they are wide and with objects that are in an up & down motion. Another advantage to shooting vertically is that it helps to filter out unwanted distractions on the horizontal plane and makes the object seem or appear taller. They also work well with closeups. So lets go get vertical!

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at anytime!
~ Again - HAVE FUN!
