vertical panoramas

learning to live with the restrictions is a crucial step to survive reality…

these shots are (not very good) examples how we could creatively exploit the picture format restrictions that are in place on most photo sharing pages, including photoblog. of course, the human eyes rather sees horizontal panoramas, because we have two eyes left and right now up and down - but why not experiment a little with our eyeballs to find new dimensions in what we see? ;-)

(p.s. these shots are meant to be scrolled up and down)

Do you use an auto stitch? I've never successfully done one of these.

I think #3 is quite interesting in this format. It made me curious at the top and gave me a reason to scroll. Whereas the other three were obvious subjects that just required the scrolling exercise to move on.

I've gone to almost exclusively square format here on PB and find that I quite like photos that way.

Go for it! I post these long things too. It's good exercise for people, the scrolling.

I do like the first and the last (shame about the stitching in No. 1, but that happens). As a method of engaging the eye in a vertical narrative, I think the third is the most effective.
