Re: First Pano Solway Firth

Oooh, bigger image please

(Actually, I know it can be a fight to get the gallery to accept a big image. I posted a 2000 pix wide pano earlier this week, and it took 3 attempts finding the largest I could submit to stop the gallery resizing it to something pathetic..)

Re: First Pano Solway Firth

Fantastic.. OK, now we have something to work on..

First comment: If this is a multi image shot, then I can't see the joins and that is very good :-)

Second, this is a general observation that gets critical with wide panos: Is the horizon laser-level? My impression is that you need 1/4 degree (picky) clockwise :-) I posted a pano recently, but that was only after I had levelled it !

There is a good sense of space here, but (for my tastes) I would suggest re-shooting this with a telephoto lens, or your zoom set to max so that you accentuate those distant hills. I know that doing landscape with a tele lens is counter intuitive but it can work. Wide angles tend to flatten the landscape.

Anyway that's just my 2p

Pete

Hi Pete Thanks for the comments
It is a 4 shot pano and i was concentrating on the stitching ,I think it could do with leveling as you say ,as for a reshoot it will have to wait a bit 240 miles there and 240 back is not a day trip
