That is a lovely shot Ian with interest from bottom to top. Having an XPan myself I have found it very difficult to take wortwhile vertical shots. The foreground is usually the problem that I encounter. But your pathway carries the eye nicely up to the tower and the sky looks after itself.

Scan aside Ian Wink this shot really makes full use of the format that you are using.


Putting my camera club judge hat on, I would like to have seen someone or something in the immediate foreground... maybe.


Good shot that's bound to look a lot better on paper.

Terry this is not an entry in a camera club competition and I think it is a little unfair to judge it as such. I took part in club competitions for years and now look back on those days with a very negative attitude. People were encouraged to conform to fixed compositional ideas or risk not gaining high marks. Photo competitions instead of photo critique are the main stay of club programmes which is why I have opted out them for the last few years. I now enjoy printing up my work for print showings twice a year with like minded people. No scores or rules of composition are mentioned just general chat about each persons work. Everyone seems encouraged afterwards and look forward to the next meet up.


This is not intended as an attack on you but more a rant against club photo competitions.

This is an unusual vertical panoramic composition and I think it works very well.


I use an Xpan myself and often 'go vertical ' and compositions like this are hard to find, but when you find one they often come-off.


I don't think the addition of something or someone in the immediate foreground would help because the texture / patterns in the stonework are visually very interesting on their own. In fact I would find such an addition to be a visual distraction - especially if the item / figure was of modern appearance.


A good vertical panoramic vertical image - keep looking and you will discover some more :-)

Sorry If I brought back buried memories Vincent...


The comment was meant to be slightly in jest, with the finger being pointed at camera judges (of which I was one for a number of years. I would like to think that I never fitted the conformist attitude of the many and it was one of the main reasons I became one was to try and put out a different view to the many others).


I will try not to use that terminology again but if I forget and do, I will try to remember to put a Nah! next to the comment. Smile


And no 'attack on...' me taken. Smile
