Its a nice panorama. Not a lot to see there other than a exercise in pano shooting.

I get the impression its going downhill to the right, but perhaps its the angle its shot at?

A little brighter, and a tweak to white balance to get it more like a daylight balance can work.

Mod is tilted the other way just for comparison.

Very well done technically. The perspective is odd, I suspect that the apparent tilt that Willie refers to is down to the far side of the lake not being parallel to the camera. It drifts off away from us on the right. The reflections near the centre of the frame drop down vertically and that's the acid test - in the rotated modification they tilt slightly.

But the apparent slope is a distraction. I have uploaded a modification with bottom left corner skewed down, top right skewed up. I quite like the result.

I also lightened slightly and did some gentle dodging and burning to bring out textures in the trees on the island.

What this does need is a precise focal point to balance the general sweep of lines. A dog-walker on that path, or children feeding ducks, would bring this to life.

Hi, I will compare it with poetry. It is EPIC.

All these topics included: ''Sky Summer Weather Landscape Sunlight Day Wildlife Park City Nature View Uk Forest Spring Country Water Plant Sun Field Tree Grass Clear Outdoors Clouds England Natural Land Lake Outdoor Panoramic Trees Meadow Scene Lawn Pond Cloud Cloudy Heavens Horizon Scenery Season Colorful Hill Rural Environment Scenic Fresh Outside Plain Grow Sunny Oak Fields Cloudscape Pasture Grassland Leicester Landscape and travel Idyllic.''

yet NO CLEAR subject.

all interest is in the background yet there is no pedalo in water, no biker on the road, no pram pushing mothers on the path or anything.

I think this needs something in the foreground desperately. A colourful blow up beach ball maybe?

Kindly,

As above,really. Not a bad effort but lacks a clear composition. Why 1/5000 I wonder? I would have been at 100 or 200 and f8 or 11.

The master of panoramic shots is Colin Prior. His website is worth visiting, though there's less emphasis on the film-based Scottish panoramas that made his reputation.

The essence of a good picture is that there's a way to read the image, a way round the frame for the eye, a story. Normally, three elements will be enough, in a conventional frame.

In a panorama, there need to be digressions and excursions, sub-plots and interludes, like a 24-episode TV series. The eye needs to be able to travel through a succession of interesting points in the frame - birds in the sky, trees nearby, a walker with her dog, a couple of joggers, a boat on the lake, clouds in part of hte sky, and they all need to work together. A big ask, I know - but there is as much to master in the aesthetics as in the technical side of making a panoramic shot. And, very often, concentrating on a difficult and demanding technique draws attention away from subject matter.

You've found a good viewpoint.
As John describes this needs some more. A bank holiday or weekend in th summer when the path has a string of people along it. A different ime of day so the lighting is less flat. Another in autumn.
Think of this as your note in a sketchbook rather than the final painting, to draw on an analogy with another visual art.
