    >1vp?
    Seems that so far all the photos have 1VP, as Nikolai keeps pointing out. I was going to try for a 2+ VP photo, but I'm stumped as to how to pull it off. Perhaps a Y-intersection or similar setup? But I haven't found any that I could pull of without a fisheye lens.

    Anybody have hints for achieving a 2+ VP photo for the fisheye impaired?

    Yes, Y-intersection and a wide enough lens would give you 2 VPs. What's your widest now?
    I remember Denver had quite a few of Ys downtown...

    My one and only for now is an 18-55, with a 1.5x crop factor. Denver does have a lot of Y's, thanks to the central downtown street grid being twisted from the rest of the area's grid. Still, haven't found one I liked -- although admittedly I haven't made a serious effort at it.

    So there's a lot of variations on that theme (hallways, railroad tracks, trails) but it seems like there should be more than that. Guess that'll give me something to noodle on tomorrow.

    While I'm not a big fan of 18-55, it should still give you some WA at 18mm. Sure you'll get some less than the perfect quality, but hey, we're not exactly shooting centerfolds here (I wish:-)

    2 & 3 VPs
    After a bit of looking around I found Civic Center Park, where I got all of these.

    2VP's here, although the one on the right is a bit foreshortened by the railing ending.
    150965384-M.jpg

    Another 2VP's, although the left one is a bit messed up due to the railing pitching down.
    150965462-M.jpg

    And finally, a 3VP. I wish I had a wider angle lens, but you can still see them.
    150965612-M.jpg

    And now I'll quite spamming this thread. :D

    Wow, what a collection! clap.gif

    BTW, #1 can count as 4VPs, since you have both railings and buildings mwink.gif

    Of course you are! WAs do not have cut-off date. The only rule about timing is that you should not submit the photo taken before you knew about the assignment. Naturally, we cannot enforce it, but thus far we've managed...mwink.gif

    Nice 1VP! A bit on a soft/spooky side, but a valid entry by all means! thumb.gif

    It's a nice picture. I don't want to invade Nikolai's territory as King of Kongratulations and Arbiter of Assignments, but I daresay it's a nice example of vanishing point too.

    Was there anything in particular you're looking for suggestions on? What were trying to say with this (aside from the VP thing).

    Why not something really simple like this:
    (also added some curves in L mode and some G-blur with the mask)
