Cycling in Paris
Fuji TX2, 45mm, f/8, 1/250s, ISO 400
Film: Kodak T-Max 400
Shooting horizontal panoramas with the Fuji TX2 is comparatively simple and fairly similar to traditional framing (although you have to be extra careful with focal plane and horizontal lines) but knowing what to do with such a massive piece of image real estate in vertical is a real challenge. I was therefore quite pleased with this shot because the cyclist provided me with the foreground subject I needed to make it come alive. Admittedly, the differences in lighting of the foreground and background make it less than perfect, but still, I think it works.
