Hi folks.

My apologies to the quick few who visited and voted on this yesterday before I pulled it. The keen eyed My Sutton correctly pointed out the titchy size (i'd forgotten to check the pano option - duh!!), but only after I'd closed down and submitted my study to a sleeping 12-year old. My only recourse at that point was to delete it from Bee's laptop.

Well; here 'tis again.

Continuing with the sequential theme started by Paul and Fran after our photographic sojourn in Cornwall, this was shot in the late afternoon following the Good Morning Mousehole Dawn Expedition and before we'd returned to our tent for our bbq dinner having left the Ashton-Sutton Photo Combo to go on to greater, splendid and award winning captures on the Tuesday evening from the perilous cliffs at Priest's Cove.

Godrevy, of course: A favourite haunt for Bee's and mine for many years, and a surprise suggestion from Bee before any plans had been hatched for what turned out to be a return visit the following day. More of that to come, of course, in due time.
Anyway, it was extremely calm so I hit upon the notion of slowing thins down a bit (well, a lot actually) to compliment my intention of shooting a panoramic stitch - all my other panoramas from here have been crops. This idea has been brewing for a long time and conditions were just right.

A five shot stitch, each lasting three minutes at f/14.
I think it worked out rather well - you may or may not agree.

Thanks for getting past a long, thin thumbnail! Smile

I'm off to play catch up, as Bee's 147th birthday took up the whole weekend and I've consequently dropped out of sequence with everyone!

Cheers

Bill Wink

Cheers Paul!
PTGui version 8.something, I think - haven't updated it yet.
Finished it off in CS3.

I'm glad you like it! Think I've cracked the big stopper glithch, too - just got to remember to do it: this was the second sequence I shot!
