This really magnifies the juxtaposition of angles beautifully, but on my screen, I can't get more than a glimpse of any one part when it's magnified, which is so frustrating.

I like your daring treatment of subjects, Heath, but I just don't have the equipment to view them properly.

Kind regards,

Thanks Sue for your great comments - I have the same problem - the picture just becomes a thin sliver across the top of the screen - but I just wanted something different as an experiment.

I was playing around with cropping subjects (no special camera) and found that it made what I was trying to show more focused/emphasised if narrowed down.

Here the pines in the background are awaiting their fate as those already logged remind us of the revolving life cycle in a commercial forest (all I need is a sappling shot with the next).

I am also interested in the way it becomes more graphic with this kind of crop. When subjects sit in a full frame they relate more to their environment whilst they become more part of some kind of a design if closed in like this.

Try it with some of your past pics that you like and see how it changes the whole feel - it can be addictive.

Best regards

Okey dokey, I think I will do just that, Heath, thanks for the inspiration! The long thin shape of the photo in this case is the visual version of a story line, really isn't it?

If you put the saplings in the same shot as this though, I really will be stumped... (get it, stumped??) You may have to branch out into another photo....Uh oh, I could be annoying here. I'd better go, anyway, it's become very late again, all too soon. I was enjoying the 'chat'!

Until next time,

very best wishes to you,

Stick at it Sue - spruce up your pictures with a crop and yule be glad you did.

I'd better leaf the puns fir now, or I wood become as bad as you! :o)

Cheers, Heath

Hi there Heath, an excellent collection of panoramic shots you have! In this case the wide view really works well with the subject matter, nicely done!

As a matter of fact I came across a similar sort of scene quite recently but made a completely different shot; here it is.

Greetings, Tomas
