E3 & 11-22 6 pano stitch

This one is showing a little darker that I view it in photoshop. I think I've got to alter some settings in Studio for the colour profile.
Any how here it is.

Steve,

Yes it is a little dark but I like that. I'm having trouble seperating the tree on the left from the background as the background has a cloud shadow on it at just the wrong place, so the tree blends into the background.

I can only imagin the detail that there must be in the full res image and it's always a pity that we can't see that.

Were these 6 "Vertical" shots stiched into the pano?

Re: E3 & 11-22 6 pano stitch

Its a good subject, a good composition and a challenge to stitch all those shots together so well. Shame that she sun wasn't on the water, but that has been covered elsewhere.

I am a bit concerned about the top of the sky.. Is it darker because you had a grad ND filter on? (I suspect not) - or maybe a polariser? (possible) - or is this a free gift with the excellent 11-22? (one of my favourite lenses)

Its probably due to the 0.6 nd grad I used. However I would have thought that the dark area was covering more of the lens than is visible in the photo.

Ah, Grasmere from Silver How, what a viewpoint! See what you mean about the dark areas but still a nice pic even if it's not one of your best (and you do set an impossibly high standard!)

Re: E3 & 11-22 6 pano stitch

Well I had a play at editing this today. Unfortunately my computer crashed just after I finished it before I could save it. (was playing around with the 1t settings on ram).
I had another go. Whilst not as good as my first attempt I think its an improvement on the original.
