Overdoing the panos

Recommended Posts

Been faffing around a little with some panos. Some serious and some a work in progress. This is a work in progress. Why? The light wasn't really there for this one so I guess I'll have to make an excuse to go back and do it again next year!

Panos look great on ones large computer screen but once down to stock library size they lose a lot of impact:

I know what you mean Malcolm. The above is just too big! It was more a bif of fun to see how it would come out. I'd still like to do it again though in better light:)

You might have to wait some time to get the reflection again though. I really like this image. If it was mine, I'd select the top above the lake, apply a big feather to the selection and boost the contrast with a low to medium s-curve to bring out the colour in the trees.

I mainly do panoramas to illustrate landscape and geological features as part of a longterm project I am working on. I like to use a 50mm prime rather than a wideangle for quality and detail, as well as the fact that a wideangle can make mountains look like molehills. So stiitching has become a significant part of my workflow. I upload them to Alamy as I may as well but they don't sell for me.

 

I also do vertical stitches which allows me to do square format images or very large portrait format landscapes. A few of these have sold.

 

This is the only real panorama I have sold on Alamy - for $10.56 gross on the newspaper scheme illustrating the floods in eastern England in December 2012.

Thanks for that. I might just play around tomorrow when I have a moment:)
