Brilliant BW-Panorama, great contrast. I find it looks best at full size- the detail is incredible! Like it very much, YS. Cheers, Gudrun

Thank you for your comments *Daniel*_ and Gudrun. It was a last minute decision to convert it to black & white and I think I made the right choice ;)

Nice work - good stitching and great conversion.

Thanks for your comment Matthew. When I shot it I didn't intend to convert it to b&w but when I did it looked SO much better I was shocked.

Thanks Mike! I shot it with a 70-200 f/2.8L lens and it came out really sharp - as you'd expect from that lens. The original is HUGE, the high res version here is about 1/3 the size of the original!
