Catbells (not a tomato)
Posted By: thomasjmpark, 04-17-2008, 02:53 PM

I think ive almost managed to crack this panoramic. I have found it difficult for various reasons but the main being that its usually cloudy. Cloud can be a good thing but it was the sort that blows every time I tried to adjust for the landscape.

So tried again today because the sun was out. I like this attempt but found, because the sun was behind me to the left and very high, that the left side was difficult to expose, as you can see, on the far left side, there is quite a difference in tone and contrast (and seems to be quite noisy also) compared to the rest of the image. There was alot of PS tricknology on this to try and sort that out, I think its almost worked. From the middle left onwards I really like. Also I would have preferred a bit more sky above the peak, when taking the pics I didnt account for this (doh) and when i swung the camera round to the peak i realised the top would be chopped off! A little tilt of the tripod sorted that though

There is also slight banding in the blending of the water, not too fussed though.

Any other tips or crits are welcome ie is the main mountain/ hill still a bit too dark? ive spent to long staring at this pic



very large version (5mb)

Thanks Fred

I like the tiny people along the top of the mountain following each other like ants, or lemmings

Now that is awesome! The large version is stunning. Each time I view it (3 times, so far) I find something I missed the previous times. It's damn near like being there! Thanks Tom.

That's a great pano !!

After reading your initial comment I did notice that the tone changes from right to left, don't thing it spoils what is a great pano though

That's a beautiful pano Tom. I guess we can always see something that we wan't to improve when we look at our images as you have with this one and I suppose that keeps us developing, but that's a great image IMO.

Thanks Tim Tes it only works when you see it LARGE!

Thankyou Simon and Paul, its one of those things that when noticed, you keep noticing every time you go back and look, dont get me wrong though im still chuffed with it

Thanks Dave, I am going to keep at this one until I get the image I really want but I do like this one. The wind was strong enough to blow my tripod over that day Good job I had just taken the camera off it or my not so smiley would have read

It looks good even in this miniature size, but would need to see larger! In this size I would like to see a little bit more sky above the highest peek.

Thanks George. Funnily enough I had a go earlier at extending the sky a bit because, as you pointed out, the original was to close to the top of the frame.

There is a link in the original post but heres the new version. This will be the last time I upload a picture of this size again on any website as a photographer friend pointed out to me earlier, someone could easily plunder it for there own use (not from this forum I hasten to add). Not that I think it will happen but I suppose it pays to be a bit more careful I dont like the thought of splashing a great big watermark on it either but that might have to be another way to go for this size of image.

Anyway heres the link.

The picture just fits onto my 15" screen at full resolution of 1280x1024.
