No Parking

There are two places in Whitby Harbour where you're not meant to be moored and so the title comes from this being one of them although nobody seems to take any notice.

It seemed like a good test for the software as the boat was moving ever so slightly on a rising tide. This is the result of eight images.

We finally got a sunset on the east coast this weekend. Did you?

Wish I could afford your masterclass, I would love to see first hand how you get such a fantastic finish on your shots, best panoramic I've seen so far. P.S is there anyone alive out there?????????

Yip nice it is too.

The other pano from staithes i thought he has hired a boat to get out on the water to get the shot looking back to staithes!..
Yesterday that illusion was shattered i dicovered how it was done.
You live and learn and feel stupid at times lol.....

I like that Keith, a really nice shot and as always a different type of pano from yourself. Not the normal landscape etc. Works well, would love to see this large tho ie printed. 2000 pixels wide and only about 240 pixels or so high just doesn't seem to do it justice.

LOL, we no need no stinking forums, we use your pics to chat. Slow here this morning. As a matter of interest have you used the pano stitcher in CS3 Keef? I was well impressed with it, top job first time.

I always thought CS2 automerge was better than people made just had to get the images right in first place

I always wondered how pano's should be composed, but this just shows that the same rules apply, ie, rule of thirds is a good starting point.

It's interesting to see that pano's seem to work best without the traditional lead in lines / subject to grab your interest and then lead you through the photo. All the pano's I've seen that try and incorporate those features seem to look odd. Maybe it's the format of the picture that makes those tricks less effective?

At first I couldn't work out why the boat being central wasn't a problem. Then I realised that it's actually on a third, albeit the central third.

They are harder to compose and the wider you go the harder they get with no absolute view of the finished image. i find that you can lose the FG interest with detriment and sometimes, but not always fix the main subject centrally as with pieces this big, the viewer will often start in the centre of the image and then wander from there.

talking of won't make it to EPZ, but I just completed a 12 foot by three foot panorama of the whole of Whitby harbour front.....and it's 4gb and took three hours to stitch in auto mode.

cheers guys...

Isolated composition, the ladders act as a frame either side. Great detail Keith. Ron.

Like this - main subject is almost central but the details, the buoys, turn it into something else of course Smile

It's a real pity that these panos aren't getting far more interest on here Keith, but I suppose that the best place for them is printed, framed and up on the wall at their intended size, rather than trying to shoehorn them into a relatively small on-screen format!!!

21 May 2007 8:41PM
I bet they'd get more interest if I chucked a red sky in - mind you I bet it ends the day well up in the most viewed rankings sky one planned for this weekend,...with luck - LOL

ta muchly guys

in print - a fave of mine

Not just red skies that get all the attention, but a rather large increase in click clubs and crap that seem to be getting all the attention. Still, at least some people are keeping things fresh.
