I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.
Most of the weekend, I’ve been working on perfecting the panoramic pictures I took. The main one of the Hong Kong Island, I shared several days ago. It is now done. The only set of pictures I am struggling with are the ones of the Hong Kong Tram on the Hong Kong Island. It was a last minute decision to shoot them and being unfamiliar with that area, lead to so-so quality pictures.
I then started to experiment with a photo I took at the Peak in Hong Kong, converted it to a black and white picture, and then cropped it so it has that panoramic width. Building on this, I then went back to a sunset picture I took with the Red Sun. This picture wasn’t intentionally taken as a panoramic, but I cropped it to a 3:1 (w:h) ratio to give me a panoramic-like width. My friend, Craig, said he wished more of the foreground was visible. I made it a little more visible, but it is still dark. The little bit of increased visibility gives that added depth feel, at the same time the picture definitely has some graininess.
I hope you enjoy them. I will be putting these up on my photography website, Gregory Chong.com under a new catagory: Panoramics soon. Stay tuned! Click on a picture to see it in an overlay. Warning: some of the panoramics are large file sizes.
Thanks for looking,
