And it works well.

As you would expect with a land and sky shot, the land portion is a little underexposed, which is easily addressed.

Though youve selected fine weather white balance, the tone seems a bit too blue for me.

The mod has less of a blue bias, and the land area exposed a little more.


Good work



Regards

This looks terribly saturated to me: rather unnatural.

My mod tones things down a bit: English colours are usually a little bit muddy, distinctly muted.

However, I realise that this isnt' to everyones' taste.

Did you use Vivid colour on the camera, or enhance things in processing? I don't discount the idea that there are ocasional brilliantly colourful days...

Good grief, when did some hooligan paint the mountains purple!? Grin

I know you're testing the panorama function, but those mountain colours and even the sky to a large degree just ain't natural. I know that's my personal opinion, and that someone else may look at this and love it, but this amount of over-saturation is not for me.

However, the wide panoramic view itself is gorgeous. I love how you've included a little human for scale and how the stones themselves, which are normally the main focal point for this particular view, actually take a back seat here in favour of the overall scene and context. That really works well for me.

I've done a mod simply so I can look at the whole thing without visually wincing ... Wink Initially, I tried to calm those colours down massively, but it all went a bit wrong. So I converted to mono instead. I realise this may take something away from the image for you, but at my age I have to think of my health!

The colours really are strong. Not natural. It's a pity as the content is strong and well done. Not sure what you have done but it is overdone.

I saw this late yesterday but didn't have the time to properly comment.

As a test of your camera's panorama stitching function i'd say it works as I can't (at this size t least) see the joins.
This is something that would be best appreciated printed large and displayed along a wall.
Furthermore, and from someone who likes Lake District panoramas, the majority of interest is in the right hand half of this image. That would still be a panoramic image but keep the interest in the stone circle.

But oh that purple! It does hurt the eyes. I know it's close to Sellafield but it's not natural. Not even in my Fuji Velvia days did I get anything near as strong. Having said that I have seen images for sale in the Lakes with over vivid colours, which must be keenly snapped up by visitors who have experienced only grey skies.
While you can get a blue/purple tint in mountain shots, John's mod is much closer to what you'd see.

Keep on with panoramas (note to self: I must do more too) but take a careful look at the colour.

A late thought, as I use Sony cameras, and have occasionally tried the panoramic function. It really makes things easy... But I've not particularly noticed unnatural colours. Though you do sacrifice a great deal of control with the function, and this may be part of the issue.
