    nice! 2nd shot still got converging, i thought MF could be the exemption

    Are they native panoramics on the velvia? Sorry i have little knowledge about MF

    Tom, displaying one's ignorance of optical and perspective fundamentals in public isn't always a good thing.

    Converging verticals and horizontals occur with any lens/film system where the film plane is not parallel with the subject. The problem is made worse with wide angle lenses in most cases.

    I sensed that by your comments, converging verticle is ALWAYS NOT a good thing. But, there are cases when you can turn things around to your advantage, including converging vertical...

    Personally, I believe the 2nd shot works rather well by exaggerating the perspective of converging verticle, hence creating a more dynamic and graphic image.

    Hasselblad Xpan has dual formats: Normal 35mm (24 x 36mm) or panoramic (24 x 65mm) which make FULL USE of the film without masking/cropping. So yes, they are native panoramic on the velvia.

    I agree with your statement but I don't see it in your image. In your case, the converging lines are not strong or dominating enough to produce a dynamic image. If the dynamic effect is what you're going for, try go closer and shoot at the foot of the building. Now, you might not get the buildings behind in your frame but sometimes, it works better to isolate something for greater graphical effect.

    As for Tom's comment about the converging lines, unless you've got more space to work around, there's nothing much you could have done about it though.

    It seems that your converging verticle is purely from the building itself but my converging lines are not just those from the building but also the chimney and the diamond-roofsssss.

    Yes, I'm talking about the chimney as well. The reason why I said the converging lines are not strong enough is because the lines are too fragmented and too far apart to warrant a dynamic composition.

    I think it's best that I remain neutral now and let others do the talking & criticising. But, I do really appreciate your contribution.
    One thing for sure is I have been negotiating around this building for 6 years, taken pictures from every conceivable views.

    This is one I like best. Nevertheles, see my other pictures of this buiding too:

    ok ok I am very straightforward sometimes. Should learn more about fundamentals...

    Yep tom you should .. it's not that many months ago since I remember you asking the most basic questions up on IRC as a newbie.

    Yes Tom, as my signature says: "Every mistake made is a step closer to success"

    With due respect to Ian, everyone has to start somewhere, including myself. Able to learn and discover new things everyday is very rewarding. Photography is such thing that drives us to learn everyday.
