Loch Tay and Ben Lawers

By rhion
Here's the orignal colour version of the stitched panorama of Loch Tay, Ben Lawers and the Tarmachans. Taken as 7 individual pictures on my digy compact last Easter.
We'll be back up there again in less than a fortnightSmile
Hope you like the effect and can live with the stitching artefacts..
The B&W version is here.

Please look at the large version: it really does help the image a lot.

You are a champ.. Thanks for comments, now allow me to respond in kind.. This is masterful work... The stitching probably wouldn't be noticed by the majority if you didn't mention it!!.. Good to be honest though... Great, great work and each is so brilliantly exposed to enable a lovely, seemless, quality image.. Take care mate.. 5

5 - No problem old chum. The reason I like it on ePz is the variety and picking up ideas form other people's work.
Thanks to you and Gill for the comments.

I like this (as I did the black and white version). I thought I had good eyesight (with glasses) and have a good monitor, but cannot detect any joins. I'll book an appointment at the opticians!

Another picture doing quite well in the click count Wink)
Great viewed large think I prefer the colour version here.

Thanks Julie. I'll stick with the B&W (just)! I think it's still suffering from TADDSad
Good of you to take the time to have a look and comment, always good to hear from you on here.

Wink Thanks Bob. Must admit I thought the click count on this one would swamp the B&W version but it's surprisingly close. Good of you to comment.

I know you're a bit of a B+W fan Richard but dare I say I think I prefer this in colour Smile

Dare away Maggie and Paul, I think I'd prefer the colour one on a calendar but the B&W hung in a frame on the wall - no idea why that should be.
Thanks to you both.

I think I just prefer the b/w. I would never have spotted the stitching, still can't in fact. Lovely scene.

Delighted the joins are as difficult to see as this and delighted I'm not alone in (just) preferring the B&WSmile
Thanks Chris.

that's very wide indeed!

amazing the quality these little things can come up with - my IXUS has a photostitch setting which really helps, shows 1/2 of the last shot so you can line it all up.

clearly a super day, like the trees to the right, work well - the snow's always a winner too.

And a wonderful stitch-up this is too. Wink

Seriously, this is cracking stuff. Reminiscent of Colin P's panoramics, and I have to say, my preference is for the colour version. But you know me by now. Smile

All the best,

rhion 17 36 United Kingdom

Thanks Adrian and Pete.
Adrian - It is amazing what you do with equipment like this 3 Megapixel wonder. Shonah has an IXUS 40 but she hasn't mentioned this clever-sounding feature but they're both great cameras.
Pete - I hardly dare mention my pics in the same sentance as Colin P (!) but, I have to admit, the comparison did cross my mindSmile
Thanks both for taking the time to look.

Very nicely stitched up... I am no good at stitching..
I like the strong colours in this and am swayed to the colour if I was made to choose.

No need to choose Jeanie - if you like them both, that's best of allSmile

This shot just proves the old saying "It's not what you have got, it's what you do with it". As such you have created a beautiful photo, which puts others taken with far superior equipment to shame - well taken.

Thanks Derek and we can easily get caught up in ever more expensive kit (myself included) but the quality of the result is still (fortunately!) much more to do with the operatorSmile
