103 o Longitude

Inspired by the book "Paris Vertical", I decided to make a Singapore version. All are welcomed to chip in!

If you could, it would be great if you can make the ratio of your pics 1:5(even longer than the original series!), include a 32 pixel wide border, and size it to 464x2064 pixels in dimension so that we can have a sense of uniformity. Maybe we could post anew thread in the world sections when we have enough.

Of course we can't use "Singapore Vertical" as the title, thats copying! So I decided to use 103 degrees longitude, subtle reference to Singapore and the theme of the set.

Of course not!(to both questions)

Just wanted to add an extra dimension, instead of the very normal "R" sizes.

Vertical panos are great way to photograph buildings but you have to be careful about the composition. Its more than just photographing the things you would usually do in a different way. You have to choose your subjects carefully or else it will not work; and yes, not all buildings can be photographed vertically.

There's a book that has been around in Page One for a thousand years on vertical panos taken in New York. That's a great source of inspiration.

That day I was walking around that OUB Centre, and I saw these two amazing photos of Chrysler and Fuller building hanging in some jewelry shop, they were beautiful!

Just wanted to initiate a thread for people to add to.

I myself too 9 panos, each consisting of 10 smaller photos, so my card was virtually full by the end of the day, hehe.

Honestly, among my 9, I only like the supreme court photo(1st one in this thread)

another addition

unfortunately no. It's mostly hidden from my view. The best possible location is probably to take it from mid-level offices at ORQ
