Cropped Sky

so clouds.. you guys hang around here much?

A different take on a new favourite tree of mine, it did start off as quite a large vertical panorama, however crop at the very bottom of the frame just did not quite sit well with me. Hence rather than a horizon at the middle it ended up as a classic 1/3rd composition…

ya gotta view it large too 🙂

Exif love:
a whole bunch of vertical frames stitched together…

  1. This is a stunner, one that cries out for printing for your upcoming gallery show which I think you definitely should have! (Not that I am a gallery owner, art dealer, or art critic, but you work should be celebrated and if I did have a gallery I would be contacting you to work out dates.)

    I don't think I did in this case, i am pretty sure I was shooting manual to ensure my exposures across the pano were consistent. If I shoot in aperture priority mode i sometimes include a 0.3 or 0.7 -EV, i notice this is not so much required for some lens, however lens like the 85mm 1.4 seems to need at least -0.7 to protect the highlights.

  3. +Gerard Blacklock Thanks for your kind answer! I'ved learn another thing and I'm thankful, I never thought that it depends also on the lens the fact of using the EV compensation or not, that's probably why I've got different results when using the same cam with different lenses under the exact same light conditions… I understand what you've said about aperture priority and sometimes I do it too : ) but normally I go only in manual mode and I goo up to -1.7 to deal with the highlights but I'ved never managed to get such a fabulous clouds like the ones you've got here! Thanks! : )
