    If I say this is Singapore, I would be lying, wouldn't I?

    Took this at Victoria Park (Leicester, UK) on one Saturday morning, next to my lab.

    Afar in the background you can see people playing soccer in short despites the bitterly cold weather. There were also people doing morning walk/jog and one photographer (that would be me) taking the shot... how satisfying.

    thanks Andy. Photographically, this is not my favourite shot but it does carry certain sentimental values to me with fond memories tagged to it...

    Preferable to zoom a bit ...to eliminate the left tree... looks a bit wierd if you compare to the right one which some part of the tree cut out.

    just my personal opinion

    Wow, this is excellent. And it looks good panoramically as well!

    I doubt you know I actually nogotiated around that place for some serious 5 to 10 minutes, trying out every conceivable angles for the most aesthetic composition.

    I moved to the left and then to the right (then left and right again), zoomed in and out, out and in! My fingers were all numbed and I almost freaked out because those trees were so closed to one another, restricting my choices in composition

    I tried zooming in but still prefer the wide angle view to exaggerate the perspective.

    Having said that, I do respect your opinion! I do realise this pic does have some flaws in it in terms of aesthetic and originality which is why it did not make it to my favourite portfolio.

    yeah, masked the top will make a pretty good panoramic shot. Never thought of doing that myself, thanks...

    No, NParks will ask me to resurrect their trees...

    hehheh, after seeing all those xpan shots by various photographers, nowadays I always try masking non-panoramic shots to see how they look in panoramic mode.

    I called that "cheating", hee... though I do mask my 35mm photos occasionally. The 45mm lens that came with the xpan does sometimes restrict my perspective.

    I have been eyeing the Xpan 90mm lens though...

    Whereabout have you seen panoramic photos taken by other photographers? There isn't much Xpan users around

    Well, I just recently went to Tan Ngiap Heng's recently concluded exhibition "Wide Eyes" at Alliance Francaise. It is now exhibiting at OBJECTIFS at Liang Seah Street.

    Tay Kay Chin also has some good panoramic shots at http://www.eastpix.com/

    Yes, cropping full frame to panoramic mode is "cheating", but hey, if it works well, why not?
