Photo of the Day - 5/16/2014

I thought I'd try a panorama today.

This photo was taken while walking around Lake of the Isles.  Like yesterday's photo, it was made using my 4GB Canon G3.  What attracted me was the line of geese heading towards the city, which gives the image multiple planes of depth.  However, cameras take photos in a 2x3 ratio, which, in this case, resulted in a lot of boring sky and boring foreground water.  The obvious solution was to crop off the top and bottom thirds, leaving only the parts of interest.  The panoramic format also has the advantage of adding a sense of dynamism/scope (which is why movies went to widescreen).

Note:  The website doesn't provide good printing options for panoramas.  Contact me directly if you'd like to order one.
