It stopped raining so I was walking on the sidewalk outside my home and noticed some interesting reflections of the clouds above in the wet sidewalk below. The clouds also looked a little like ice on the sidewalk. They finally opened some of the parks here in NJ, but are limiting the amount of people they let in. So I was looking for something to post here and thought these might be interesting. The featured image was the first image I photographed in this series with the 6mm lens (Full Frame equivalent 52mm) & using the 4:3 format. The rest of the images are panoramas shot with the same lens but with the 16×9 format and different numbers of images shot for each panorama. I do not like the distortion you get using the iPhone pano feature because of the extremely small lenses, so I shoot a series of multiple single images for each panorama and assemble them in Photoshop. Using the 16×9 format instead of the standard 4:3 format on the iPhone 11 Pro, gave me a longer image to start with so I did not need as many images to work with. But because of the extremely small 6mm lens I tend to shoot more images for the series to help minimize distortion. Overall they aligned nicely and only needed a few tweaks after Photoshop aligned and blended them.
What a cool, creative idea, Reed, and such a wonderful execution of your vision as well.
Thanks Mike! Still waiting for dragonflies in our yard! So just trying to find interesting things to post. Raining today or we might have gone to an Audubon Park nearby that was allowed to somewhat open.
Really interesting idea, Reed with excellent results!
Thanks Belinda! Just trying to take images to post!
Nice observation, Reed.
Thanks Steve! Plus it gave me something for the blog!
Cool shots, Reed, they look surreal!
Thanks Donna! Still trying to find subjects at home to post here!
You know you’re bored when… 😀
This is something I would do (and have done), Reed. Puddle reflections are cool! 🙂
Yes Eliza! It does not take much to keep me amused lately!!
