    Do you take these at 11mm?

    Mike
    Iso 100 , 11mm , f10 , 1/13 sec for the single shot.
    18mm for the pano I think.

      Wellies or waders!! With the splash proof E3 and E5, I'm not afraid of getting the tripod wet for a good shot any more. These were taken the day after a storm with the tripod so far down on the beach that every wave reached almost to the the top of my boots (and a couple of them over the top) (can't believe how many days it takes to dry boots in cold English hotel bathrooms ). There were a couple of Canikoners on the beach as well, staying dry. My Pentax colleague and I were in the water shooting in the waves. "Oh! Well, you see OUR gear is weather proof!"

      E-3, Zuiko 12-60mm, Lee filters: 0.6 ND and 0.6 ND hard grad.





      Lesson of the day: Alway have fresh water and a cloth ready to clean off the salt drops from the Lees while photographing, as the salt will spread the light If someone knows anyone working at Lee, a filter wiping system would be great!

        I have cropped your image and I think that the crop brings out the mountains and makes a more balanced composition, However that is only my opinion.

        Hi Barrie
        I looked at your crop and I think it does look better.
        Whats interesting is that its cropping to over half the image size and looking at the quality from the original file its still good enough to print.
        I will have to correct the green and purple fringe to the bolder on the left as it stands out a lot more now.

        Thanks Barrie

          Which software are you using for the panos? I want to learn how to do them, and yours was really nice!

            Hi Cathrine

            This is something I do in fresh water but would be reluctant to do in salt water.
            I was taking shots is a stream in Glen Garry in Scotland a few years ago and I snagged my hand on the camera strap, all the camera and lens went forward and under the water for a second and from that day I've been a lot more careful.

              Photoshop or Auto pano
              I think most stitching software does a good job nowadays.
              I find the best bit stretching the image with the warp tool in photoshop to bring everything back into line enough to crop into a usable image.

                I agree with you partly, Barrie. Placed where it is, the boulder draws one attention, and it partly covers the mountain behind it, but I think it should be in the frame, though. By moving closer to it, he might have been able to separate the two, and placing the boulder more in the lower left hand side of the image. But, I'm not always very good at predicting how things would look by just moving a bit, I'm often disappointed after having moved everything to a different place, and not getting what I anticipated.

                I quite like the kelps, although they are untidy, they are a natural part of this environment. And the warm colours of these are absolutely lovely! Beautiful exposures!

                    You should have seen the kelp before I cleaned it up Elgol is a working harbour and I'm not saying its from the ppl who use it but the area is littered with bits of plastic and rope all entangled into the seaweed.

                      Cathrine I took the liberty of doing this whilst my crop of Elgol was printing out. just a bit of saturation and some match colour.

                          Ooooh! Thanks Steve! I've been thinking of reprocessing these for a while. I took them after a workshop with David Noton last year, but finished them using Aperture and a Mac, which I didn't really know the program well, so I've been meaning to go back to them. You just gave me a good shove foreward there!

                            Dear Steve,

                            Excellent panoramas, I have to admit that I prefer the first one.

                            Cheers

                            Chris
