Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth ( at Zhangzhejie)

<This post contains 2 photos>

I need two photos to illustrate Depth at Zhangzhejie, China.

The problem is that even if I use a wide angle lens, it can only show the breadth or the depth of the stone pillars and the adjacent mountains.

To show both the breadth and the depth, maybe, I need shooting from a helicopter.DSC_0132

The first picture is in landscape format, it shows the setting of the “Avatar” stone column.

Whereas, the second picture, in portrait format,Β shows part of the stone column but misses out on the adjacent mountains.DSC_0131

So, by now, you may understand what I mean when I said I am not unable to use one photo to show the depth and the breadth of the scenery.

  1. I like these shots a lot. I don’t use Photoshop, and I’m wondering if you do? I would like to see the faint structures in the distance in the second photo…the way they show in the top photo. Awesome anyway!

    • I have Photoshop but I don’t really know how to use it. I use a free processing version, only adjusting the lighting and nothing else. I have photos of the faint structures taken at close distance which means they are no longer faint.

    • We were on one side of the hill, looking downwards. That was the maximum extent I could take with my camera, maybe I could squeeze in more by using a fish eye type of lens but then it would distort the photo.

  2. I am thinking of going there. Is it worth it compared to Jiuzhaigou? Some people told me that if you go to Jiuzhaigou first, then Zhangzhejie is a bit of a letdown.
