We’re excited about this week’s photo challenge, near and far, and hope it inspires you to play with perspective, which can give sweeping images of beautiful locations more oomph and power. Perspective is what makes a flat two-dimensional image, such as a photograph, appear like it is three-dimensional. To create this effect, you can use features like diagonal lines, which converge within the frame and literally suck in the viewer.
In this photo, the cemetery of the Congregation of Mission House Saint Franciscus Xaverius in Teteringen, The Netherlands. The cemetery is now integrated in a golf course, weird but fitting. The atmosphere is subdued and very quiet.
I was triggered by the rows of crosses, leading up to the big cross at the far end of these fathers’ last resting place.
