    Thank you for your helpful critique. Sometimes I post things here when I'm unsure and I'm grateful for forum member feedback.

    As with everything we do in photography, there are many ways to make a panel image. Even minor changes in print color, border color and thickness make a difference. Some photos are enhanced when treated as a panel while others are worsened. I'm exploring and playing.

    One approach is to mimic the folding screen approach where the dividing lines are minimal and unobtrusive. Another approach uses thicker separations, as though we are looking at the subject through a series of window panes. My guess is that different methods work for different photos.








    I think the "exploration" is good, but not so sure of the "need" for a panel in small sizes. What I think would be fun to see would be this wonderful photograph enlarged to actual panel size (in the tradition of Ansel Adams large panels) and put together on boards.

    My mom loves birds - she breeds various exotic parrots and enjoys birdwatching. She visited this past weekend and helped me choose some nice bird feeders for our back deck to go with our hummingbird feeders.

    Been watching them this week and got a couple decent photos of a titmouse (titmice?). Taken with my D800E and Sigma 300mm f/2.8:

    You make an excellent point !

    According to Wikipedia even the 16th century Tohaku screens measure 156.8 by 356 centimetres (61.7 in 140.2 in) or around 5 x 12 feet... and the actual work consists of 2 screens !

    Until a well-funded patron steps forward with a commission I think I will put this approach aside

    I like those Ken, particularly with the white dividers. It's the same scene as a wide photo of course, but the composition changes as you divide it up because I'm looking at a series of compositions instead of one.

    Also reminds me of Koichiro Kurita who has exhibited locally and I followed with interest because of him being inspired by Thoreau.
    These are probably 8x10 negatives photographed sequentially and contact printed as a group. He's big into the handmade thing but I'm open to various methods of printing.

    Perhaps a little bit of bounced fill light on the shadow side, but other than that a very lovely photo. It reminds me a lot of some nudes done by Edward Weston.

    John, I don;t always like such short-DOF images but this is especially well done. The out-of-focus effect complements the subject anc composition nicely.
