Panoramic of Skiddaw
Posted By: thomasjmpark, 03-04-2008, 06:06 AM

Hi,
I was suitably inspired by Weatherwise to do a panoramic. I couldnt figure out how to stitch in PS so used trusty 'Autostitch'.

Taken using the DA* 50-135mm.

P.S. im not sure whether to watermark large pictures in Flickr if visible to public and if posted on forums, is it a good idea?

Well, it says that "This photo is currently unavailable". I do want to see it bigger!

Despite its diminutive size it looks awesome, Tom!

I'm surprised I inspired. In any case I like your picture. Interesting geology just a dort of wrinkle on the landscape but high enough to get snow. Impressed that the grass is turning as well.

Unfortunately the convertion to jpeg isnt very flattering and the midtones in the trees are somewhat dark! Cant have it all I suppose

That's great! Thanks Tom

Have you ever been to the summit? Any pics from there looking back down to Keswick and the lake?

Thanks Dave and Jeff

Yes ive been up there a few times day and night, rain and snow! Thats the mountain behind my house, my house is about half a mile off the right of the frame (i didnt go very far today!)

I have a few pics from the summit, but its always been cloudy so nothing to see. One day the cloud will break though...

The large version looks real good Tom it is a fine pano. If I may make one suggestion, try and take a little green out I think it would improve the overall look. Just an idea,

Heinrich

Thanks Heinrich. Ill give it go, I had to desaturate it alredy because the colours were VERY vibrant! Ill need to set the colour lower on the camera the next time i use this lens

Thanks very much Kim The original colours are a bit more varied wheras they have gotten a bit muddy on here, hope they look ok when printed
