This is a section of Blackpool’s North Pier, shot from the south, and was taken a little while after yesterday’s shot. As with the previous shot, this was PS'd but only to increase the contrast (a fair amount) and the saturation (a little). For some reason I seem to have neglected what could be called panoramic shots such as this, focusing instead (at least recently) on macro images or shots with a much smaller scale. Part of my reason, I think, is that the Canon G5 does struggle a bit with resolution and when I look at other people’s architectural/landscape work (often produced with DSLR's) I often feel quite dissatisfied with my own attempts.
That said, I do quite like this one though suspect the composition could have been a little better; i.e. the pier is a little higher in the frame than it would be if I took this shot again.
And I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Caitriona, of the wonderful catriona.net, for fixing my css so that it will work properly with IE5 for PC. For reasons that I couldn’t work out the css I’d used failed to display the main image in IE5 – which was a bit disasterous. All being well, this is now fixed (though please leave a comment if it still isn’t working – I don’t have IE5 so can’t check), and the 6.4% of people visiting my site who use this browser will now be able to see something other than a blank grey page :-)
