Lakeland Panorama

By pfheyes  
Bit of a lame title, but I can't remember the name of this valley. It was taken on a round of the Coledale Horseshoe last August in thundery weather.

The image is another panoramic stitch of two seperate image.

Any comments and criticism are welcome.

LHS Foreground is too dark for my liking and overpowers the whole image.

anybody looking at the small version, should open the large one...and wallow.

I love this, I'd buy it, I could sell it and it would hang in any Lakeland gallery.

Looks fine on my screen, Ewan. We'll have to agree to disagree. Smile

Great composition & colours, I have to agree the foreground is a little dark (unless I turn the brightness up on the minitor then the detail emerges), excellent shot nonetheless.

I also agree with Keith, the large version is superb. Just spent several miniutes looking at all that detail, and the view....... Awsome!

Thanks everyone - I'm guessing that anyone who sees it as overly dark may have a CRT monitor? I did this on the laptop which hasn't been calibrated yet y'see.

You are right Pete, CRT here and a tad dark on the l/h side, not the foreground itself, thats fine, just would like to see a bit more detail on the next crag really.

An absolutely stunning shot all the same, terrific detail (fast becoming your trademark). You couldn't have wished for a better rain cloud if you'd tried.

Sure it's dark, but so what! The light is amazing. Love that storm - so typical of the lakes. At 1000 pixels - breath taking. I really must get up to the lakes this year.


PS - thanks for the kind words . . . I'm still playing with my new toy, but will get round to uploading more often.

The small version doesn't do this justice - it comes to life at full size!

I am in awe at the presence of the photo in the larger version along with the detail, I like the curvature of the skyline, the shadows and the thunder clouds also, very, very good Pete.

Thanks guys ... as it stands, I'm happy with this one despite the monitor/darkness issues. I'd like to this one printed BIG. Smile

Thanks to all for the comments and honest feedback.

All the best,

Superb stuff, it's almost in 3d and the rain shower really makes it come to life

Pity the thumb looks so dark, Pete - probably puts people off opening it. Don't know what they're missing. The colour is spot on - typical Lakeland browns and greens. Love the splash of brighter green from the plantations. Think your (very short) break away from epz did you good. Your work seems to have gone up a notch since you came back.

Took Keith's advice and looked at the large version and "wallowed". It's superb - so much detail and depth, excellent work Pete. click

Had to wait till i got home to see this - my LCD @ work makes it too dark. And its not that great on the this calibrated CRT. The large version is lovely a real sense of rolling hills and light.

Recon your best bet is to start doing talks to local climbing/walking groups you would have a ready made market for your pics there.

Thanks everyone

Aye Chris - I've looked at this on my Spyder 2 calibrated LCD and it is DARK. I'll have a go on that machine and see if I can get a brighter image without killing it's mood.

Re: the climbing/walking groups .... not a bad idea at all! Smile
