Hong Kong Island

Canon 7D, Canon TS-E24mm f/3.5L II, f16, 20sec

Well, yet again the weekly blog has taken a slow turn. However goodbye wet and windy Scotland, hello Hong Kong and hello to cheap (ish) camera equipment, hello to a new 24mm Canon tilt and shift lens and hello no more converging verticals and to 50 megapixel panoramic shots like this one. The shift function is amazing. 3 shots taken at various horizontal shifts and stitched together in Photoshop. Because the lens keeps the same plane the whole time there is none of the bending of perspective that comes with wide angle lenses and therefore no information is lost. This is definitely my new favourite toy!!
