WHITBY - THE TOWN TOUR

By YorkshireSam
I love compiling huge multi frame panoramas and each time try to find a harder challenge, Well the challenge here of course was not just that I had to do it in 4 rows portrait mode ( 97 frames in total) but
most tricky was that there would be lots of movement. The latter I solved by finding the right shutter speed but if you loook carefully for all there is no motion blur there are sets of twins and even a set of triplets as subsequent frames caught them elsewhere in the scene. Another tricky part was waiting for things like the Endeavour replica and the tour buses down below to be where I wanted them .

This Extremely Large Version allows you to see the scene in exceptinal detail so go on take the tour Smile

In the versions is a single frame from the scene with exif which got lost in the compilation for those interested in such things.

Many thanks as always to all of you who show an interest in this and anything else added previously.

A very impressive technical feat but full of creative flair as well; that S bend in the road leads the eye in so very effectively and I love the ship sailing out of the river. It reminds me on an illustration from a Richard Scarry book, it's so busy! The ruin on the headland makes a very effective FP too. I just wonder whether excluding the harbout walls might improve the flow of the image, they keep trying to lead my eye out of frame to the left; the road is the lead in line and if I crop using my hand from the left side of the road, my eye flows better for all that the harbour is an interesting feature.

Amazing detail in the "extremely large version". Certainly a challenge in taking and processing this.

An excellent piece of work, Sam. Reminds me of a 'Where's Wally' image trying to pick out the twins. So much of interest to look at. Expertly done.

A fantastic piece of work, Sam, showing off this marvellous sweep of the town from a high vantage point: I too have been trying to pick out the twinsSmileSmile.
Ronnie.
Excellent attention to detail Sam, making a lovely comp so well presented with very good processing.

I appreciate the comment Al but having done a similar one to your suggestion already I wanted to include the entire scene in this version and of course that meant having an opening beyond the piers. Cheers

The most noticeable twins are the two blue cars and the ladies either side of the centre foreground lampost and the triplets are walking the pier adjacent to the tour boat replica Endeavour,
