Lochan Panorama

By jstock  
Maybe I'm putting up too many shots from our trip to Lochan N-ah Achlaise on Rannoch Moor, but it was such a fun day! This is my first proper attempt at a pano. I stitched 15 shots together in CS3 and then spent absolutely ages trying to clone out my friend from the foreground (John was there first, taking shots, so it wasn't his fault!). Anyway, I ended up cropping out that part of the image anyway. D'oh! It's pretty hard to know how to use this format effectively...

Super shot and well done.

Thanks for the comment on my image it was much appreciated.

I use a program called combinezm its a free piece of software. I have also hand stacked the images in photoshop if the software dosent do a good job.

Here is a Link for a tutorial on Focus Stacking done by the photographer who inspired me to get into macro photography, it runs through the whole process and how to use the software, which is free.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

This is a superb photo. Thanks for making the effort with Photoshop.
There's a website on panoramic photography ( with techniques and recommendations for gear. Although you may be a step or two ahead of them.

Awesome image!
Very impressive panoramic shot, the large sweep of the Lochan is wonderful, and the even sky across the frame is excellent, never easy to do.

A belated welcome to epz and a Happy New Year Jon,

It might be hard to know how to use the format effectively, but you've made a cracking image here. The odd rock scattered in the water breaks up the symmetry very well and the reflection is just superb.

Wow - wouldn't have believed it was stitched unless you had said so - thought it was a fancy panoramic camera shot!

Great panorama, top work. I don't think panoramas get the attention they should, not sure why as I think they look superb when done as good as this.

Glad to no 30 beautifuk shot
You were very close to my wee spot, your pano is very god indeed, the lack of Black Mount is fine when you have such a great skyline instead. You'll be back.

All the very best
