Thank you to everyone who took part in March's Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with a wonderful array of over 800 pictures and excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme! Thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us!


The Barnack's Monthly theme for April 2016 is: "From above, from below"

This month's theme is all about where the picture was taken from to (hopefully) enhance the picture presented to the the viewer so it means any picture that is taken from a high angle or from a low angle to the subject.   It could be a bird's eye view or a snail's eye view, a picture taken from an aircraft in flight, from the top of a skyscraper, from a hole in the ground, from underwater, from a staircase, from an upper floor, from a lower floor, from a balcony, while crouching down, from a seated position, from a hang glider, from stilts, or while lying down - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free!  For those who usually shoot at eye level (like me!) this is an opportunity to pick up your camera and get used to shooting from different angles to see the difference it can make.  It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view but it's not compulsory. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's not compulsory just helpful.


The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it!

Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post.

Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme.
