Most photographs are of course basically rectangular. In my case the ratio is generally 4:3 because they’re taken with an Olympus. Other companies of course have different ratios. However special scenes sometimes need to be much wider then they are high. These scenes tend to be special places, especially to the photographer.
Here we see a typical 4:3 image along the Buffalo River in Arkansas. Yes, it is in “portrait” rather than “landscape” but it is 4:3, or strictly speaking 3:4.
Here we have the same rock face, but with the whole face showing, and far more of the river. In fact the river appears to curve far more than it actually does because panorama photos will do this under certain conditions.
Here we have a mountain TOP view, as opposed to one where it is very wide but looking up at a mountain. These work best when you’re able to get above the tree line, but if a hill has an open slope (like the photo of the vineyards below) you can still get the same feel.
