    Weekly Challenge Sept 16th- 23rd: "Panorama"

    Weekly Challenge Sept 16th- 23rd:  "Panorama"-b-w-panorama.jpg

    Weekly Challenge DATE: B&W Panorama

    This week's challenge has a double twist. First, you will take at least 3-4 pictures, than mend them as a panorama. Then you will convert it to B&W. The picture will then be judged for composition, exposure and contrast.

    Remember to read the challenge rules and follow them.

    Have fun with your Nikon!

    These challenges are designed to help you grow in your photography skills and creativity, and also to have fun. Be sure to visit the Weekly Challenge Rules & Guidelines for more information.


    The Rules

    5. Judging criteria is based on the Twelve Elements of a Merit Image.
    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Challenge, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited/straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.For this week's challenge, you are asked to photograph a panorama with the added B&W twist. Yes, it is mostly about composition and light and shadows.

    OK! First and second attempt failed. I found out I should be shooting pictures vertically not horizontal. This way the picture isn't sqaushed height wise if using more than three pictures. Also I had camera set in aperature mode. That caused each picture to have different lighting. Round three tonight.

    Newbie here... I undertsand your assessment on aperture mode... curious why one would not shoot horizontal?? It makes the "panorama" more wide by a long shot but does that not represent what a panorma is?

    Well, this was my first try. I only had my mono-pod. Which only shoots horizontal.. Thats why when I got home to use the program I had noticed my mistake. Also I forgot to change my settings from my previous shooting. I never really read up on pan shots before. So, I did some research and found out the right way. Live and learn. I have a great spot to shoot from here and I should get a decent pic tonight.

    Marcel, it is a great challenge! I have not even had my camera a week... It will be fun, no matter what. I have never done a panorama ever before and have not done anything with b&w since maybe 1980!

    For me, just finishing the challenge with be satisfying and a learning experience!
