      Thanks! 🙂

      In it’s own way it’s as garish as the sunset photo I posted the day before, but then I’ve never been one for subtlety.

      Speaking of ham-fisted, here’s a great 90 second montage of One-point perspective from Stanley Kubric:

        That montage is terrific!

        In case it gets taken down, I really like this mash-up someone did – setting footage from Kubrick’s 2001 to the Banshees’ “Dazzle” – it’s appropriately epically trippy and dramatic, way better than the original video…and please, let’s not debate copyright, just enjoy! 🙂

    Nice perspective work.

    I do a lot of panorama work. I’ve had surprisingly good luck shooting panorama on my smart phone. I tried for years, lenses, knitting together separate frames, to no avail. Finally broke down and got a camera which did pano shots. Couldn’t be happier.Report

      You might remember I was doing stitched together panoramas of the boat-shop last Winter, and yes, it’s a lot of work, even just to get an obviously patch-worked result.

      My frustration with very wide aspect ratios is where to show them. As mentioned previously, they work well for websites, but outside of that, very few things lend themselves to long photos. Phil Bolger wrote about that in one of my favorite passages of his…Report

        Yes, I do remember that image. I use Google’s image storage, very convenient and cost-effective.

        It’s not difficult to have two panos printed on the same big sheet, have a framing shop cut them apart and mount them.Report

        I assume you have looked at giga-pan which is a way to get huge panoramas, one puts a digital camera on a special tripod mount and the software takes a bunch of pictures and pastes them together. (The key is that the tripod mount aims the camera by computer control, so that the software to make the panorama has an easier task)Report
