Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

Two panorama and done differently. Would like to know your honest comments. Both are handheld

Olympus E-M1, LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15/F1.7, /1.7, 1/125, ISO: 800

B01) This is a 9 landscape shot stitch.



B02) This is a 11 portrait shot stitch. It's done slightly later and at a few steps to the right.

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

I prefer the 2nd, because more of the boardwalk is included in the foreground and the light is much nicer.

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

I am in agreement with all... no 2 is a better composition and also a better edit... can you check if the image is 100% level, it looks as though its out a little.

Beautiful island... keep them coming

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

Thanks. I overlooked the 4 deg anticlockwise tilt.

In 2008, I did the same shot at the same place but early in the day. Unlike the 2 which was late evening.

B03)


If I were to be back there again in the future, should I do that B02 again as in this light?

Or should I walk further to the left and shoot with most of the boats to the right?

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

I would pretty much stick with the composition of BO2.

No 2 does it for me. I like the cloud color.

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

#2 seems more balanced. Both are very well stitched. Can't see the joins at all!

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

I much prefer the second shot, both for the better sense of scale and the much more attractive light.

Thanks. The stitch I did back in 2008 had a few stitch errors. The water was choppy hence some of the ship's mast moved. It was not possible to rescue. The recent pano, the water was still

I also like no 2. The composition is more pleasing and the light is much better. These two images show very clearly how much difference a slight change can make. Thank you

Re: Telaga Harbour, Langkawi

I prefer the second photo as well, due to the more pleasing light and the way in which the complete board-walk allows my eye to fully travel from left to right (ending nicely with the tents).
