    Astronomical Unit - Panorama

    Hi, going forward on my photography venture I stopped and clicked another shot. Can you please review it and let me know what exactly is missing for it to reach position Perfect?

    It is a Panorama (stitched 16 images) of Ram yantra, an astronomical unit used for measuring the altitude of stars in Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

    Please provide more information on the position of the pillar, Center or pillar on the right 1/3 with rule of thumbs. Both the cropped images pasted.

    Thank You.

    I think that because this is an abstract image, that an important part of it is symmetry. So, it is better that the pillar is in the centre.

    I think it is a very well conceived and executed picture.

    A very nice shot. I prefer the off-center version, but only very slightly.

    Raj, nice job seeing this image. For me it's an abstract. Centered probably makes it have more eye appeal.

    Hi Raj,

    I prefer the centered version.

    I was wondering why you decided to make it by stitching 16 photos together instead cropping a single photo.

    Thanks for the suggestion . I dont have a super wide lens or fisheye lens, but i was having just 50mm prime lens It was not at all possible for me to shoot such image, So took a panorama for exactly for this image.

    I was standing to the wall of the Yantra and clicked You can make out from the image below.
