Peak Panoramics - Curbar Edge II

By Nick_w      
Well how do I follow the last upload from 2010 - Big thanks to Pete and Wolfy for the EC & GEA.


I hope you are well over your hangovers by now !

Something a little lighter than my last upload some of you will be glad to hear!

This is the second in a trilogy of Pano's of Curbar edge (This was the first) . A much loved and togged location, but one who's splender never ceases to amaze me. When I go out I usually go out with a couple of aims, my primary target this particular day was to get a good Pano.

This is another stitch using CS5 - I must say I'm impressed up to now with it. In 3 panos I only had one very minor misalignment (not on this one) and that was more down to my sloppy technique in the field.

Anyway please give the large a whirl the thumbs / small view doesnt do it justice - and I had to compress it quite a bit just to get to the 800 Kb size limit.

I've got to agree with you Nick, the thumb doesn't do it justice. LARGE is a must. This is another sure-fire winner

Omg I didn't anticipate that thanks again Pete and Wolfy can't tell you what this means Smile Smile would go and celebrate but that would break the New Years resolution Wink

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and have a great 2011.

Excellent view and light Nick. There is a darker blue area centre sky then lighter either side which is slightly odd but non the less a grand image.

Thanks Yung, Sylvia, Trevor, Fran, John & John.

And a big thanks to Dave for the User award. Smile

John (Parminter) it does look strange, but its there on all the RAWS, On the original (which is over 1/2 metre wide at 360 dpi) its caused by the double cloud bank, the lighter area is the sun reflecting off the lower cloud bank, from Memory there was a cloud overhead too which will have reduced the luminance in the central area.
