Perspectives, continued

In light of my previous post, I've included two more examples of how changing perspective can change a subject dramatically.  The first shot, I took a two images of a sunset head-on and stitched them together for a standard (but beautiful) representation of a sunset.  Then there's this:

On the way out, my father turned around and drove out of the parking lot we were in when I was taking pictures (side note: my dad is an excellent photography accomplice).  As we were leaving, I was blown away by the light reflecting off the side of our rental monster truck.  I got out and tried to photograph it, but couldn't capture it...unless I stayed in the car and shot a picture of the side-view mirror.  So, if you were wondering why the top right is completely cut out and the right side isn't in focus, it's a result of the imperfection of shooting into a side mirror through a glass window.

I agree. Your father is an excellent photography accomplice. He gets the "stop the car" direction. Thanks for sharing and for the kudos on rural PA. Beautiful pictures!
