Artist's Description

Perth, Western Australia, has some great art deco theatres, such as the Cygnet in Como and the Luna/New Oxford in Leederville. All these are still in everyday use – although the Astor was the subject of a closure scare recently. Looks as though a truck has started premature demolition work on the awning.

The Astor is on the WA State Heritage Register.

Camera: Canon Powershot SX100 IS with 10X zoom lens, 6.0-60.mm, 1:2.8-4.3. Composite panorama created in Photoshop Elements 6 from three portrait layout shots taken from a single pov with horizontal perspective adjusted to remove apparent size reductions to right and left. Gives appearance of being taken from much further away (narrower viewing angle) than it really was – I was just across the road, only about 15 metres away.
Small amount of vertical correction as well.
