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.

Big blue skies this week and at last a day out of the office. As always, comments welcome.

52 for 2014 Week 47

Again a Saturday last minute picture, this new job is keeping me from getting anything in the week these days. This week a trip up to Princetown to photograph the Prison in rapidly changing light, 0.3 ND Hard Grad used to hold the sky. As always, comments welcome.

52 for 2014 Week 46

Another Saturday afternoon last minute shot here, Burrator Reservoir looking towards Leather Tor in the distance. I had to use a 0.6 Soft ND Grad on the sky and a 0.3 Hard ND Grad on the water to hold detail in the land strip. As always, comments welcome.
