A rather different view of Leeds Castle. The image was captured a few years ago now. It was a rather lack lustre day, the sky was as grey as a coalminers palm. However I did manage to get enough images to complete this panoramic. With a little help slice of creativity, and the help of a few layers in CS5 Extended, I manage to turn what was potential a pants image into something which has been rather successful as regards to making a couple of pennies.

Thank you all for your most gracious comments and votes on yesterdays offering, It certainly is a nice feeling to know that my work is worthwhile, and in turn admired for what it is, "Whatever that may be?"

Regards Nathan

P.S. I sincerely hope you all have a great day.

P.P.S It is my first day without Julie since the beginning of the Summer holidays, as she returns back to work as a Teacher.

I have never seen A panorama of Leeds Castle taking in so much in the one image, Nathan: very well stitched together image and the processing applied is so in keeping with the nature of the subject.
Beautifully done.
Ronnie.
