Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

Edit looks good Henry and that vertical pano is stunning. I had a look at the others on your Flickr page too, you have some lovely shots on there.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

As we descended from the viewing point, We stopped at another place to have another photograph session, I saw the sea of clouds have receded and hence this panorama. Lots of trees blocking my view.. Should I have just use them as single shots or leave them be?



I doubt I can remove them trees.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

The pic in post #12 looks fantastic on my big screen at full scale. I agree it would make a good poster size print the level of detail is superb.

The shot(s) seems to have been taken from a high vantage point, were you in an aeroplane.


Looking at your other pics on Flickr you have a great set there.

Wonderful photo's Henry!

I've always wanted to see a volcano - we don't get many in the U.K.!

Anything is possible - might take some work though.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

I'd leave the trees in it adds to the feeling of depth and just being there. It's another cracking shot. What a superb trip you've had.

We were at King Kong Hill overlooking Mt Bromo.

The shots were done with a Lumix 45-200@45mm. 4 Landscape shots were vertically stitched in Panorama Maker Pro. Saved in Tiff then edited in Affinity Photo Pro to remove the haze and to clear the photo. And of course Nik Collection helped

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

Another 45mm Panorama. Should I remove the lonely cloud?



If you zoom in, you can actually see the stairs to Mt Bromo's crater.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

Another superb shot Henry. These should definitely get printed large for the wall.
In the previous one you must have gone very close to that volcano taking that shot with the 7.5mm Samyang .

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

Ref the lonely cloud, I would leave it in. I think it adds to the scene. As for straightening the horizon, again I think it adds to the scene, tells a story. But it is for personal taste. De-fishing sometimes takes out some of the edges of the photo...…………...

Cracking photos either way...……….
