Well, as of this moment, I've off work for a week + a few days for some much needed R&R. I'll try to post mid-next week when I'm back in the range of the inter-tubes once again...
This was the setup for this shot..
..I show it because I thought the closeness to the beach chair was really interesting.
The first set, I shot sweeping from left to right with the camera in "portrait" orientation. My thought was that a super-huge panoramic would be nice. I may go back and try it again later but the natural single-frame, non-stitched shot looked better than the stitched panoramic. Much less obvious distortion, anyway.
I've been experimenting with this Lens (Nikkor 14-24) and a Sony 10-18. Looking forward to getting to put them both to work this week on vacation!
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend
