K7 give birth to medium format shots
Lens: Kit lens, 200mm Camera: K7 Photo Location: Vantaa, Finland ISO: 200 Aperture: F8

I don't own a macro lens or a medium format camera. I just own the two kit-lenses I bought together with my K7. Ok. But I tried to find a way of crossing some borders - the restrictions of the kit-lenses (which serve me well!) for example.

In the last weeks I tried a technique of stitching full 200mm-lens-close-ups to one bigger image - kind of according to these Brenizer-Style-Shots - but with tripod and - as I said: close-ups. Means: Taking multiple row panorama shots and stitching the images with software to a bigger one. It has some nice side effects: Great detail, interesting bokeh and perfect cropping possibilities. And it's fun.

I would love to have the results of these studies criticized. It's just a technical play - I hope, I can express sometimes more with these technique.

I attached the pictures in full size. Please be careful. Some are bigger than 10MB. I hope it works and no computer crashes or slows down very much.

Perhaps you might want to consider linking small images to the giant originals so the post doesn't take so long to load 10x10mb images.

That said, I looked at five of the images, and it seems to me that they don't really look much more detailed than if you'd shot them very well and upscaled them. Nice images, though.
