I spent a while trying to think of a unique point of view for this challenge. Then I scrapped all my ideas when I thought, what about the subject of the photo? How do my subjects feel when I hover over them with my camera?

Violated? Exposed? Irritated? This would be good to capture in a photo.

So my choice for a unique point of view is from the subject's eye. I picked a white rose from my wife's rose bushes and set up in my backyard on a sunny Saturday afternoon. I put my old Spotmatic over the rose and then took several dozen pictures with my A60, all from different, uh, points of view :-)

I think I have a lens just like that. I would have tried to it with a little more depth of field.

Surreal and fun. I like how the camera floats above the flower. The lights seem to be overexposed, maybe because your camera metered off the darknes of the camera?

Did you use neatimage on this? I like it, but the trees in the background look quite manipulated.
