• this blurry bit I blame on the duck.

ground level (a first attempt, an experiment)

Newer Older


a ground-level panorama inspired by one done by Panorama Paul, only not as good...(he's the panorama master) One of my darn shots was a bit blurry, but at the time I was being menaced by a duck*, So I was flustered and didn't notice.

* the ducks in the company gardens are a bit mental.

    Menaced by ducks huh? Mmmm...what was Michelangelo's painting called...Leda and the swan? So why not Amanda and the duck? Yeats even wrote a sonnet about it:


    However, I think this is an excellent panorama. Quite different, the ground view, and if you hadn't mentioned the blur, nobody would have noticed anyway :)

    An excellent shot, the point of view gives the whole thing a fresh perspective.

    I feel very much at ground level - so your experiment in perspective is definitely successful! i love the strong presence of the leaves in the foreground.

    Well well Amanda... now you've gone and blown my socks off!! Your subject choice and composition are just awesome... those leaves blowing around the foreground and that imposing silhouette statue flanked by those amazing trees... and those two doves in flight... everything is just perfect!! Please keep 'em coming, okay!!!?

    rene: easiest way is to hover your mouse over my icon, then click on the little arrow, and in the dropdown menu should be a flickrmail link.
    easy as!
