I just joined, so Hi to everyone. I tried doing a panoramic of Canary Wharf, and just wanted some feedback

Thanks

Hi shaunthein,

and a warm welcome to the forum!

Your picture I really enjoy. Lots of drama and an unsettling yellow-brown light coloring the sky. With a little imagination, one might think there is a fire going on behind the buildings in the right. And just left of center, the top of the building lights up like a beacon.

Would you mind sharing with us, what camera, lens, ISO, focal length, F-stop, exposure time and whatnot, that is behind this interesting shot?

Cheers :-)

Sure,

I used:

Olympus E-410
Zuiko 14-42mm @ 14mm
ISO 200
F/3.5
1.3s exposure

Cheers,
Shaun

hi Shaun
looks like a scene from the blitz in WW11. Do you have filter effects on the 410 looks great.
regards GCJ :D

Hi, and Thanks!

I ddin't use any filter effects, although I increased the saturation slightly, About +5 or 6 in Photoshop Raw conversion.

Thanks again,

Shaun

Nice shot. Looks very atmospheric, I agree with the comment about the fire!

However, I would have done a few things differently:

1. I think the shot is a little too wide.

2. I would have used a smaller aperture for this type of shot, especially considering the slower shutter speed.

3. I think theres a too much of the sky in the shot. I think it would have looked a lot nicer if it showed about 30% less sky and 30% more water...

Don't disheartened by my comments, It's just my opinion.. :)

Also, I'm a complete newbie so I guess most people would say "what do you know?!" :D
