Panoramic of Tory island
« on: November 17, 2011, 12:11:41 PM »

This is another photo taken on the incredible Tory island. The place is a landscape photographer's paradise. My aim was to use the diagonal of the bottom right rock to lead your eye to the apparent meeting point of the distant cliffs and the large main rock in the foreground. I was shooting the scene, when suddenly the rays of sunshine burst through on the right of the image to complete the the image perfectly.

This is a good example of how incredible the 28mm Schneider is. Believe it or not the lens movements on this stitched image were down 8mm left 17mm than down 8mm right 17mm. Pretty amazing for a lens of such a wide focal length.

It looks a fantastic shot of a wonderful place. The sky is lovely.

The smear produced (I think) by the ascender of your final "h", just to the left of the main rock, is really, really distracting, though. Couldn't you move the watermark a tad to the right? Please?

I love the way the light through the clouds points directly at the tip of the biggest rock.

Nice shot!

The adage, "Close, but not touching" is well done, as is the rest of the print. It's keeping the central rock from merging on its right that is one of the little details most will miss.

Well done!

Apologies to anyone who can't see the image on the LL right now. I have changed my web hosting company so the FTP is out of action for a wee while. Not sure of the technicalities  ??? The website it self has changed over so you can click on the link to the larger image fine. Sorry about the inconvenience

Interesting to read on your website that you "find the photo quite peaceful" because to me that dark rock scape and dramatised sky combine with the calmed sea to give a photo that's dynamic, attention-grabbing, restless and far from peaceful. My gaze is pulled around from high contrast edge to high contrast edge without finding a place to settle. Maybe you had to be there?

Maybe I was biased Issac. I took it a week before the wedding and the place there is just so magical. I gave myself 4 days to shoot a small island so the whole experience was just very relaxed (unlike the week after!!)

I use Nik Software's silver effix pro. By the way I just tried to browse your lovely website again and I am getting a warning that it may be a suspicious malware site. I don't know if anyone else is getting that but you might want to check it out.

Really nice image, though quite dramatic, it does have a kind of calmness to my eye.
17mm shift you said? Does the 28mm go that far? I thought it was 11mm max.
Very nice indeed,
George
