About the Image(s)

This is an image taken this fall at the newly relocated Martha’s Vineyard Museum in Vineyard Haven, Ma of its new wall for its outdoor garden space. They plan to use it for lectures, music, discussions, etc. Wonderful place to congregate and contemplate. It was designed by one of our very special islander stone masons Lew French who was the designer, architect and builder.

Camera: Sony a7rii 55mm @f11 bracketed then merged 3 HDR into Pano in Lightroom.

Very nicely done. Seamless pano and no obvious distortion. I would have preferred having a little more room on the top as the top horizontal slab is touching the frame on the right side.   Posted: 01/06/2020 19:01:00

Thanks Pierre. It bothers me some that the image is missing its grounded base "floor" too....but I thought the wall was so unique & wanted to share. The huge stone in the center under the monolith is set on the diagonal and forms the corner to the rectangular garden.   Posted: 01/07/2020 07:23:53

Hi Judy,
I think that you would have been better to take multiple vertical pictures and then make your pano (5 or 6 picts). After you stitch them you can delete what you do not want on the top and bottom - giving you more latitude.   Posted: 01/10/2020 19:11:19

Nice scenery! I agree with Pierre that it is too closely shaved both top and bottom.   Posted: 01/08/2020 18:51:16

Yes I agree it most definitely should have been shot vertically providing the latitude of space to crop properly. Hopefully a lesson I won't be forgetting again as I did here.   Posted: 01/10/2020 19:59:24

Hi Judy. A very interesting shot but agree with the others that a little more space at the top would improve the image a great deal. Cheers Glenn   Posted: 01/17/2020 02:05:38

This is an interesting scene with lots of detail and texture. I agree with the comments of others about the top and bottom. You may be able to construct a thin gap at the top by expanding the canvas and filling in with the clone stamp tool or some other method. I think the bottom would be harder.

Best wishes, Todd   Posted: 01/17/2020 14:37:05

Hi Judy,
I agree with most comments here. I know it will not easy to expand image by cloning some areas. Alternately, my instinct would be cropped it tighter. I know it's not ideal but that's what I did to salvage some of my travel collection pictures that I like so much.   Posted: 01/21/2020 21:40:36
