Well someone's got to start. I didn't search deep, but I like this one.

HK Harbour 73.8MP Pano Stitch (external link) by adrianevans (external link), on Flickr

I took 10 shots in portrait orientation on my D3s (12MP camera) to make this 73.8MP equivalent picture. It was done at 24mm if I remember correctly and probably f/11. It was handheld too. ;)

This one is pretty cool too.

Kwun Tong Storm 2 (external link) by adrianevans (external link), on Flickr

That one was a 3 second shot (f/11 24mm, ISO 400). I put it on top of the air conditioner shelf in my lounge (27 stories up) to get the shot, I used the self timer and mirror lockup too. So I was lucky to get it right.

That Second one is awesome.
With the speed of these new cams it really makes handheld Pano and HDR shots possible.
Well that and some skill:D

I took this photo because the girl really caught my eye. She was in a state that was almost trance like. Her mouth moving silently to the words of the song as to not compete with the artist entering her ear. She swayed so fluidly and uncontrollably as if in a state of musical nirvana.

I am hoping for people to share their photos that have impact or express something.
The slowgoingness of the thread makes me wonder if people have photos with meaning or not:confused:

Ok. I guess this one has impact. I like the shutter speed captured to give it the feeling of movement. Awesome? :)

That would have to be my over the clouds shot.
Shot with a 18-55 lens kit and T1i/500D most probably between 18 and 24mm.
That was a shot from the airplane heading to Mexico.

EDIT: quite big.. way too big. Any ways to scale that down on POTN?

more of this set can be seen here: http://simonparadis.de​viantart.com/gallery/ (external link)
Comments appreciated.

This panorama and lightning are amazing shots Stealthy.

You're right -- POTN rules are 1024 pixels at the longest dimension, and that's over 1500 pixels tall!

You have two choices -- if your online host offers different viewing sizes you can pick a smaller size (many or most do but I don't know about deviantart) or, resize a version in your editing software -- you can upload it to your host site or directly to here. To do it directly, it needs to be saved at a relatively low quality -- I typically resize at 800 at the longest dimension and a quality of about 4. Then check the file size -- it can't be larger than 150Kb.

From there, in your post click the Go Advanced button and then click the little staple "Attachment icon in the toolbar, Browse, then Upload the image. Close that window then click the little arrow next to the staple and choose the jpg you uploaded and it should show up in the post window as an image ID surrounded by ATTACH tags.

I had a hard time choosing just one. This was taken in Haiti just after the Jan. 12th earthquake. Not my best photo, handheld from a moving vehicle.

WARNING: Graphic image may offend.

I've never had a photo of mine cause as much controversy as this one did. This is my youngest sister after she had her mastectomy. People were shocked, disgusted, you name it. Welcome to her world.

This was published in the Orange County Register during Breast Cancer Awareness week a few years ago, along with the story that goes with it.

Cancer Isn't for Sissies

I know this photograph is hard to look at, but cancer isn’t for sissies. This photo was taken some years back after my youngest sister’s mastectomy following her diagnosis of Inflammatory Breast Cancer, a more rare and more deadly form of breast cancer. What I love about the photo is what it tells us about HER. Always a free spirited sort, the crystal pendant was a symbol of her New Age leanings. The dog tags, which belonged to our deceased uncle, an air force chaplain, symbolized her "fox hole conversion." Facing possible death, she wasn’t quite sure where the truth lay as far as an afterlife went, but wasn’t taking any chances. The crystal heart was her attempt to feminize what was left of her body, having survived the ravages of surgery, chemo and radiation. Most people don’t ever get to see what a chest looks like after a mastectomy, which is why I shot this photo. Well meaning, they say, “just be grateful you’re alive...” and will not allow the survivor to grieve the loss of their breast. One of the many lessons I learned from my warrior-sister’s cancer journey was to shut up and just listen and to recognize they will go through all the stages of grief over this loss and on their “angry” days, should be allowed to feel anger without someone minimizing their feelings by saying, “just be grateful you are alive.” They CAN be grateful and angry at the same time. Really.
