Mobile Phone Panorama Competition #6 : Entry Number 33

Judges Comment

Very good use of the compositional elements of a panorama to create something interesting, engaging and different. In particular, aside from the obvious curves of the path, the smooth texture of the plaza on the right is a nice feature.

Photographers Comment

I do most of my shooting with a DSLR, but took advantage of a quiet, cold night near City Hall in London to capture this image with my iPhone 6, using Occipital's 360° Panorama app. It took a couple of attempts to get the city, the river and Tower Bridge framed within the elliptical shape on the left of the frame, but was quite happy with this one. I exported the "flat" image to the phone's camera roll, cropped off the bottom of the frame where the perspective had been warped a little, and then made a couple of minor adjustments to the highlights and shadows to bring out the light reflecting on the tiled walkway in the foreground.
