Orthagonal Twist

February 15, 2019

One of the famous buildings in Hong Kong among photographers. Been exploring the area of Ping Shek Estate and its surroundings. I was lucky to be alone there for a decent time, so I couldn't just leave the place without capturing this frame.

This Is a composite image of 2 photographs.

One is for the building
Second for the plane (Taken from a stock images Online).

This is impressive, how did you come up with adding the airplane tho, pretty smart. I am considering travelling out of my region to collect these sort of breathtaking existences.

I do from time to time composite images which i enjoy doing and love too. Its logic for me to fill a sky either with clouds on cloudless day or any thing that flies since its air we are talking about. I have another composite of the same image but with crossed ladders instead of an airplane.

I wish you all the joy travelling mate and just make a research on the locations you wanna visit so you can visualize the frames you want.

I'll be sure to keep that in mind.

Did you try and recreate that very controversial shot that Nikon awarded? Caused a bit of a stir since it was also comped in the same way you did yours.

Hi Z, thanks for the question. Simply no but its in many ways looks that i did, but im leaning toward composite images and at the time of editing this frame i felt it would make sense to have something to fill the blown highlights. Logically i was deciding between birds or an airplane and went with the 2nd one. I had a lot of people also asking me about that. But as you can see, if i do manipulate my images, i make sure to state it. For me its an ethic thing and the right way.
