Portland Japanese Garden (Roundshot image)

This was about 190 to 210 degree image. The fence in front and the wall behind me are straight so it was just beyond 180 degrees. Lots of things I'm still figuring out with this camera, mostly trying to manage the lighting conditions over a wider area. This is a medium format camera that advances film past the lens as it rotates to create panoramic images. Light and dark areas in the image can be controlled by programming an inrease or decrease in rotation speed. The white gravel in this scene was too bright but I sort of liked the composition, I think a worthwhile one to come back to when the conditions are better.
