  #137 "Panoramic-scapes"
Entry 4 of 23
   
 
Fishing Pier       ©2014 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-G5       4th place, 161 points
1/639s, f5.6, ISO 200, 28mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Levels, cloning a bit of sky (top right), crop, resize       Extra Info: The pier perspective is obviously distorted by the wide angle (180 degrees), but sometimes that's the fun of panoramas. I liked the effect on the tire tracks in the sand and I liked the shadows on the beach.

    Beautifully composed - I especially like the way you have used the vehicle tracks.

    I really like the way you have used the warp to create so many curved lines here. The choice of late afternoon works brilliantly.

    I like the distorted view here, and you did well with the sun.

    I agree - the distortion of the pier makes a very interesting photo, but the shadows in the sand really make it by adding great texture.

    The wide angle works great here, and the tire tracks and shadows add interest and texture in the foreground. In my favorites.

    Oh perfect - except for that sloping horizon! Great shot otherwise.

    Interesting perspective on the land and water, bridged by the pier. I too like the capture of the linear and curvilinear aspects. Bit bothered by the horizontal; seems like it needs to be leveled (image dips down from right to left). Not a big deal though.

    Living near the ocean, I have also photographed a few piers. I have always liked the skewed or distorted look created by a panorama shot (but I think the look is not appreciated enough by others, for some reason). Love the shadows, the lighting and the tracks in your shot. I hope yours does well. It's a favorite of mine.

    I too like the distortion of the pier and the tire tracks. It works well in the pan and adds interest.

    you're right. the exaggerated angle and what it does making straight lines into curves works well in your composition. great shot.
