    Looking down the Marina

    Dubai Marina, viewed from one of the bridges.

    This is a 10 shot panorama with the 2/35 Distagon again. Once blended, very little to do in photoshop...

    It's a large 22MB image, so bear with me if you zoom in on the 8432 px wide image

    Very nice, especially the ghostly strollers.

    Thanks John

    Strange how some of the pedestrians are clearly walking through the shots, but some posing for photographs are standing still for a long time (1/3rd second, 1.3 seconds and 5 seconds exposures, plus the time to adjust shutter speeds between each shot and the 2 second delayed timer as well!)

    The half cut building on the left was distracting until I opened it in full screen.
    I would love to see it in a really large format - a big screen!!

    It is

    Phil, the lose standing building in the centre is leaning slightly to the right.

    These really hold up, even when you zoom in and see the interaction amongst the tourist. The woman near the far right corner was in nice detail.

    Of the panoramas you have posted lately. I like this one the best. Rich with detail and imo a stronger composition than the others.

    I see a stunningly beautiful woman in one of the windows, a nice touch

    Hi Phil,

    Cities at night are always excting for phtographers, and you did a fantastic panorama shot. Would love to see it larger...
    Thanks for showing!

    It's an illusion - if you zoom in close and scroll, you'll see that the verticals align with the edge of the monitor window. The balconies which get smaller as the building climbs, combined with the angle of the face of the building to the camera, make it look as if it leans from a distance...

    Hi Phil,

    You made me transfer that image to another computer and view it in PhotoScape.

    You are right, it is an illusion. The illusion is caused by what you say, the balcony’s on the left of the building narrowing from floor 13 and narrowing again from floor 21, above level 24 the building narrows again. The building to the left of it narrows very slightly from the 3rd section.

    I zoomed in to 100% and my jaw just dropped. Amazing.

    I do not know how you did it to upload such a large file to CiC, the file on my computer is 10.9MB. At CiC we trust members to have integrity. On the most popular radio station in SA there was a program broadcast, last week, warning listeners whom publish photographic images to the internet, never to upload large files that can be used by others. Listeners were advised to keep uploads as small as possible to avoid any subsequent illegal use of their images.

    I hope you understand what I mean.
