Wide panoramic shot of the main canal in Venice taken from the Rialto Bridge, around mid morning. Busy weekday activity. The panorama was composed using three separate shots (roughly equal thirds).

Hello, this just popped up as the 'Featured e2 Photo, and seeing as Venice is one of my favourite places, and no one has commented, I thought I would.

This doesn't work for me as a panoramic. Firstly, it's not the right scene for it, imho. This is more suited to the normal 3x2, or even a square crop. Well done for a good stitching job though.

It's too busy in the corners. Many delivery boats cut on the left, and a water taxi just cut on the right. Things have to look deliberately cut, not accidentally or carelessly cut. Best to try not to cut significant things at all if can though. Wink

The boat in the centre is too close to the bottom for me. If things look like they are moving, it is generally a good idea to give them space in the scene to potentially 'move into'.

It would have been nice to see some more sky, or at least space because the sky looks like it would be blown out, above the buildings on the left. Things close to the edge of the frame draw the eye because we expect space around things. How much? Until it looks 'right'.

If you disagree, that's fine with me, but I hope you take this in the manner it was intended, to help. It's just one persons opinion after all. Smile
