  • 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. Obvi...

    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's Project - Stitched Panoramas

    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. ...

    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.

    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 (...

    Another last minute shot for this week's blog. I saw this old stone shed and it's wall and thought the colour contrast of the gate set it off. As always, comments welcome.
