about this gallery

The 3:1 aspect ratio is a relatively wide panoramic format. There are not many cameras which support this format so photographers need to visualise the end result and crop in the digital darkroom.

This aspect ratio tends to be adopted mostly by landscape photographers. Often the subject matter for a landscape photographer is of such a scale that only a wide format can do it justice.

Some photographers avoid 3:1 as they believe it is difficult to include detailed foregrounds. For me this is part of the challenge, and the 3:1 format is by far my favourite.
