Not the bending the elbow type, but rather the ones you see on some imagery that's a tad wide.
What are folks thoughts on the addition of a black bar to the top and bottom of images that are really wide? I've been playing with cropping to cinematic 2.35:1 proportions for some shots from my recent trip and I quite like the extra-wide view for certain frames.Yes, Walter, I know, it is actually 2.39:1, but I'll go with 2.35:1 as my image ratio for now, and yes, I know I have placed a cinematic ratio within a photographic one...
Anyway, here's a few examples so you can see what I mean.
Fill out the poll or comment, I'm interested in others opinions on the use of them and whether I should continue or jump ship before it's too late. I've never used them before today, so there's still that "novelty value" going around for me.
Thanks in advance for all assistance.
Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.
