Re: Sunset over Gower

I like ultra wide panoramas such as this, you get a feel of the space and desolation.

Re: Sunset over Gower

Mark it needs more contrast and brightened up IMO but not losing the lovely pastel tones

Re: Sunset over Gower

The problem for me is that I can't see anything that marks it out as the Gower - unless that's Worm's Head on the right.

Re: Sunset over Gower

MJ - as said a lovely shot. In your view though which is the closer to what you saw. Original, or the second 'Alf'd' suggested rendition, that does look sweeter I have to admit.

Re: Sunset over Gower--

Original unaltered jpeg....



And the Worms head original...



The panorama was 5 photos stitched together thus the well known view of Worms Head has been belittled, thus reducing the recognisability (??) of it..(or something like that :-) )

All in all, a worm through rose coloured glasses. I do like the 'letterbox' treatment.
