Open Challenges!

I recently discovered the XPAN 65:24 aspect ratio. It's super wide, but it has a certain look to it. It's a challenge to imagine how best to compose with such a wide format, but I think when you get it right the results have some real impact. Best viewed on a wide-screen monitor of course (it doesn't really work on a smartphone!). The Panasonic S5 that I'm now running has 65:24 as one of its selectable framing or cropping options so you can more easily preview it in the viewfinder. You can get the final result by cropping a single shot of course, but if you do two shots in regular landscape format side by side and stitch them together later then you'll get a higher res result. Anyhow here are a few shots to kick it off. Will be interesting to see if anyone else wants to play! The Last Gasp of Sunlight by Paul Kaye, on Flickr
What do you desire this moment, how come and will you do anything about it? What fancy reasons, made-up or otherwise you are able to tell yourself? :)
