Default Zoom or Walk - Hotel Front Entrance

All the portals that came to mind had the area past the portal indoors. It was an overcast day so that worked OK. My Canon S95 goes from 28mm to 105mm.

Same order as in the challenge announcement. I read #3 three times and I'm still not sure if I know what this means: walk toward the portal until you think you are about the same location shown in the zoom shot and shoot a third shot. Does that mean walk until the size of the image in the wide angle is the same as in the previous tele (zoomed in) shot?

2 & 3 should look somewhat the same from what I make out on this. Ive got to try this out.

I guess you need to change WB metering on the zoom pick in order to get a more precise comparison. Interesting challenge.

The idea is not to illuminate the detail beyond but to bring the details to the side into view. This was probably not a good choice. Do you have a park nearby where you could use a couple trees as the "portal?" The portal was just an illustrative term I used to specify a specific reference point for comparing the telephoto view with the walk-up view.

Agreed, while interesting detail of the inside it does lack the opening up of the angle of view that Calr is looking for.

I posted these photos because I didn't understand the challenge description. Figured somebody would point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Your first shot if fine. The second shot is done using a zoom while you were standing in the same spot as the first shot. Now walk forward using your original lens setting and try to match the image as covered by the zoom shot. You cant exactly match the walk up shot and the zoom shot because of optical differences which is the point of this challenge.
