Shanghai Temple Offerings | October 11, 2004

Here are a couple of pics taken at a temple in Shanghai. I've also added a new Shanghai gallery to my Travel Photography Section if you're interested.

Very nice pictures! You have only landscape (as opposite of portrait) pictures in your gallery. Does it feel restrictive at times?

I found having both portrait and landscape images in the same gallery quite challenging for the user interface. After pondering awful long time on the proper solution, I just decided to start every gallery with a landscape image to nail the navigation on its place. When it’s later hanging outside the portrtait images, the user may have understood why it’s there…

Thanks. Yes it is a little restrictive in some respects which is why I tend to post the portraits on my blog. However as the pictures in my gallery form part of a collection I feel it makes a certain sense that they all share the same aspect.

Do you take the photos explicitly for the gallery or do you select the suitable photos from a stack of slides?

I assume that you don’t cut the images, so in all landscape images the camera has been horisontally?

My own approach is shoot away and then select the best images later. I may get awfully good single shots, but I also loose continuum as there is not enough decent frames to create a serie.
