Photo of the Day (10.5.08)

I’m enjoying the unique perspective of the Pyramids in this photo by Flickr user DS355. Too often when photographers take pictures of these amazing Egyptian structures, they focus exclusively on the Pyramids themselves. What I liked about this shot was the way the Pyramid is shifted to the background in a sort of soft-focus haze. Also interesting is the way this shot plays with perspective, making the horses and their riders appear “larger than life” in relation to the wonder that lies before their view.

Have any photos you’ve taken of the Great Pyramids? Or perhaps during your vacation in Playa del Carmen? Submit them to our Gadling Flickr pool and we might just choose it as our Photo of the Day.
