Stitched PANO 4

This month I threw caution to the wind and had a go with my X20, hand held, Aperture Priority and no filters, JPG. I know - against all wisdom in the field of stitched panorama photography, however, I am surprisingly pleased with the results. Obviously not the same IQ as the X-Pro1 but if this is...

Stitched PANO 3

Another shot of Dartmoor, this time without snow. This shott is on the West side of the North Moor and shows Widgery Cross on Brat Tor. The overall view is typical of that Western section of North Moor open rolling moorland with high craggy Tors. I have been lazy with this one and used 8 sooc jpgs f...

Here is version 2 which has more adventurous post processing of the RAW files before stitching in Photoshop. And the original for comparison. As always, comments welcome.

This year I have decided to try a 1 a month stitched panorama. I first had to learn how to do it, you may think that is easy but I had fun. This first shot is a straight wide angle using the Fuji 14mm on X-Pro1 taken as a benchmark. I t...

52 for 2014 Week 52

The final one for this year, Moon-Spire-Jetstream, I saw this combination yesterday and couldn't pass it up. The Jetstream only stayed for the one shot. This last 8 weeks has been really difficult now I have a new job and the result has been that I am probably not going to do another 52 for the New ...

Another dull week this week with little time to get out of the office. Short days and dull weather don't make for good photo opportunities, however, when the light is flat close ups are easier. As always, comments welcome.

52 for 2014 Week 50

Here is another shot of the old engine house on Dartmoor, Wheal Betsy. Shot in the last rays of the sun which promptly went under the western skyline. Here's a slightly tongue in cheek one where the clouds are being billowed out of the stack (photoshop) ;) As always, comments welcome...

There were some amazing patterns yesterday caused by the overnight freeze, this one was on the roof of my car. As always, comments welcome.

Again a Saturday last minute picture, this new job is keeping me from getting anything in the week these days. This week a trip up to Princetown to photograph the Prison in rapidly changing light, 0.3 ND Hard Grad used to hold the sky. As always, comments welcome.

Another Saturday afternoon last minute shot here, Burrator Reservoir looking towards Leather Tor in the distance. I had to use a 0.6 Soft ND Grad on the sky and a 0.3 Hard ND Grad on the water to hold detail in the land strip. As always, comments welcome.

Another last minute shot for this week's blog. I saw this old stone shed and it's wall and thought the colour contrast of the gate set it off. As always, comments welcome.

52 for 2014 Week 44

Once again I was without a shot on Saturday afternoon so I went into Tavistock on a very cloudy and overcast afternoon with the idea of getting some historic biulding shots, however, on the river stretching his wings was this chap. I always have a 55-200 on one of My X-Pro1 bodies for just such an o...
