Stitched PANO 11

I've been looking at this scene for some time now and today as I was desperate for an entry in this Blog I went out with the weather on my side and shot it. 10 shots RAW converted in ACR and stitched in Photoshop CS6. It was a nightmare to match up no idea why, I still think it could do with more wo...

Stitched PANO 10

A couple from trips out this month. Both were shot hand held in RAW and adjusted in ACR before stitching in Photoshop. I am finding that with careful panning and framing hand held the Photoshop software can easily manage stitching. The development in ACR allows me to correct converging verticals ...

Stitched PANO 9

This month I was at a motorcycle rally at a Stately Home in Cornwall and was asked to take a shot of all the bikes outside the house. It is actually a stitch from 10 shots that cover about 230 degrees and was a nightmare to stitch together because of the varied contrast range within the image. ...

Stitched PANO 8

This month I thought I would be without a shot because work was busy, however, a trip to Cheddar Gorge gave the oportunity to try an upright Panorama, 4 shots hand held. I also tried a straight Panorama of part of the Gorge but the DR was severe and I couldn't save the highlights but it is w...

Stitched PANO 7

This month I am trying out a new camera and as such I have yet to shoot a PANO with it. It is not a new to the market camera but one that has been out for a couple of years now, it shares the same sensor as my X-Pro1s but unfortunatley I can't process the RAWs in the same ACR for some strange reason...

Stitched PANO 6

This month I have an early result. I was out for a ride and have for a while looked to shoot this location, its an old Gunpowder Factory on Dartmoor and this is one of the old factory chimneys (I think). 9 shots in total, I could have used the JPGs if I had have not been lazy and shot hand held so I...

Stitched PANO 5

This month I was able to get down to Durdle Door on a nice evening, I have been looking ot go there for some time now to do some long exposure stuff. The beach was full so I couldn't get the composition I wanted, however, I tried a couple of stitched PANOs on the East Bay aka Man-o-War Bay. The fi...

Stitched PANO 4

This month I threw caution to the wind and had a go with my X20, hand held, Aperture Priority and no filters, JPG. I know - against all wisdom in the field of stitched panorama photography, however, I am surprisingly pleased with the results. Obviously not the same IQ as the X-Pro1 but if this is...

Stitched PANO 3

Another shot of Dartmoor, this time without snow. This shott is on the West side of the North Moor and shows Widgery Cross on Brat Tor. The overall view is typical of that Western section of North Moor open rolling moorland with high craggy Tors. I have been lazy with this one and used 8 sooc jpgs f...


Here is version 2 which has more adventurous post processing of the RAW files before stitching in Photoshop. And the original for comparison. As always, comments welcome.

This year I have decided to try a 1 a month stitched panorama. I first had to learn how to do it, you may think that is easy but I had fun. This first shot is a straight wide angle using the Fuji 14mm on X-Pro1 taken as a benchmark. I t...

52 for 2014 Week 52

The final one for this year, Moon-Spire-Jetstream, I saw this combination yesterday and couldn't pass it up. The Jetstream only stayed for the one shot. This last 8 weeks has been really difficult now I have a new job and the result has been that I am probably not going to do another 52 for the New ...

52 for 2014 Week 51

Another dull week this week with little time to get out of the office. Short days and dull weather don't make for good photo opportunities, however, when the light is flat close ups are easier. As always, comments welcome.

52 for 2014 Week 50

Here is another shot of the old engine house on Dartmoor, Wheal Betsy. Shot in the last rays of the sun which promptly went under the western skyline. Here's a slightly tongue in cheek one where the clouds are being billowed out of the stack (photoshop) ;) As always, comments welcome...

52 for 2014 Week 49

There were some amazing patterns yesterday caused by the overnight freeze, this one was on the roof of my car. As always, comments welcome.
