First sorry to all those who viewed, & clicked on this a moment ago - I forgot to upload it with Pano ticked (should use the preview option !!!!)

Much as I love landscape photography, there is something about the panoramic format that for me gives it just that little bit of an extra something.

I would love to produce more, but the time to get it right is prohibitive. This was a 5 Image stitch. I originally tried 15 (3 banks of 5) but it didn't work due to the falling light levels at sunset. So I just used the central section.

My technique was a bit sloppy I will admit so it took a bit more time in post production.

I hope you think it was worth it - but boy did it take some compressing for EPZ even for the generous 800 K file size needed for a pano.

As its a pano please have a look at the large and let me know what you think - until viewed at its full dimensions it looks a bit flat no doubt from the compression

Has to be viewed large to really appreciate all the fine detail especially in the foreground. I like the centrally placed lighthouse which is unusual but works well in this format.Lovely light and tones.

Thanks Mary, as you probably guessed i delibrately placed the lighthouse bang in the middle, its something I do occasionally.

Just to clarify the composition it is balanced by placing the sun on the top third intersection, and the horizon is on the top third. I normally go for the "Golden Section" but its very difficult to "see" this when composing a pano as you are trying to imagine how several images will looked when joined. Something you can't do in camera - well until someone comes out with a pano affordable camera. When they do put me down for one!!!)

Agree about panoramic images, Nick, especially with landscapes like this. Wonderful colourful image, must be seen large!
