Difficult to comment on a panoramz at this size. Looks reasonable. Might just be able to see a joint towards the right? Have blown it up and not terribly sharp, but may be the degree of compression, which will be considerable.

Welcome to EPZ. I hope you enjoy the site.

This is a good exercise in making a panorama. Theres not a lot of interesting elements in it for viewers who dont know the location, but it does contain one of the important lessons.

In the very centre of the image, you have a tower, reflected in the water; the tower and its reflection must be exactly in line with each other as a reference for vertical; as it is, the image needs a counter-clockwise rotation to make it vertical. Thats really all it needs.

I uploaded a modification with this done, scroll up, click the modifications tab and click the image. It will be smaller, not only because I cant upload at 2000 pixels, but the rotation will clip some of the existing image off.

Perfect reflection! Welcome from me as well.

Willie's right about the rotation. I've done that as well in my mod.

There's a problem with shooting panoramas across the light like this - you get uneven light, especially in the sky. I've tried to even this up in my mod by burning on on the right.

Panoramics are quite hard to compose: you ideally need interest all across the frame. The best examples I know of are Colin Prior's - he tells a tale all the way across the frame. It's like reading a book!

A current member of this site (who wins serious prizes in competitions) has been posting a lot of meticulous and excellent panoramics - see Dan Deakin's portfolio...
