Framing - or annoyance

The rain cleared briefly yesterday, and I had a short time at Pauatahanui inlet,
about 15 minutes drive north of my home:


I thought I would be clever and use the rugged branches of the pohutukawa
tree (on the right of the pano) to frame the reflections of the buildings and
clouds. I'm not sure it works; what do you think?

1. When the sun was behind a cloud:


2. The levels tweaked more than I would usually do:


3. Looking furthur away:


We'd not long been home when the rain bucketed down again.

Framing - or annoyance

Love the panorama! I liked Image 2 with the tree frame the best. My thoughts about 3 &4 are that I think I can see what you are trying to achieve through framing and its a really interesting idea, but I wonder if the strength of the trees compete too much with the subject?

Best wishes

I do like the panorama, and the framing the tree gives it at the right.

I really like the panorama. I often try and be artistic framing things but it never seems to work for me.

Re: Framing - or annoyance

The framing attempts do not workk for me, but the pano is brilliant and is enhanced by the lovely crisp light and clear atmosphere that you often get after rain.

Re: Framing - or annoyance

The Pano is a cracking shot with lovely clarity of light.

The framing does not work for due to the scene being visible outside the framing and the angle is jarring I feel. The frames being oof make them distracting too.

Re: Framing - or annoyance

Thanks for all your helpful comments! I like the idea of framing, and I need to work at it more. I also like No.2, I think because the tree doesn't disrupt the scene too much.

The pano is almost too easy in comparison. I use the levels on the camera so I'm not tilting it differently each time and to make sure the pics will match up, and then I shove them into MS Ice... and that's it!
