June (18-)20 ~ longest light (summertime....)
Light beamed through the trees, sweeping across a valley, around 8pm on the eve of the summer solstice.
I dusted off the TLR to create a crudely stitched panorama out of four images, shown above. The awkward blend of the images was sought, however I did make use of CS5's new content-aware fill on a few areas (note the missing red guide lines). Two original images of the focus screen follow (notice their backward orientation, which is true to the file, but flipped from real life). Directly below the stitched concoction is a simpler wide angle image of the scene, while the final image is a vertical shot through a diffusion filter for a softer look, and then tinted a warm monochrome.
Gear: Nikon D90, Yashica-D, Nikkor AFD 50mm f/1.4, Tokina 12-24mm f/4, Manfrotto legs/head, diffusion filter
