For this week's Giveaway Tuesdays Photo Challenge, we've asked you to capture a bird's eye view of any subject matter of your choosing. This can be achieved by great heights or a relatively low distance—it's all about how you position the camera.
Below, 20 amazing photos to inspire your submission. Many were taken by professionals with access to incredible heights, as well as top-of-the-line cameras. But some were taken from only five feet or so above the ground, such as Meerkat and Bricks.
