This panoramic is the result of six separate images merged in CS5...

Stunning! I remember more fishing boats, but today everything is "get big or get out."

Wow.... lots of detail and writing that one can read!

Its BIG Jim.

Glad to see you have that unusual shade of sky in this one also!

Best wishes - Jethro

Xpeditor-----There are only three trawlers and a dozen or so crabbers working from the port!

The fish quay is now a deserted and largely unused facility which is in need of demolition! This would permit the only other vital source of income (tourists) to enjoy the view!

Jethro~~~I used my little Nikon zoom compact to take these frames..hand held the camera too! I cannot better this little camera for clarity, and of course, convenience! It out performs my much more expensive DSLR kit in many ways!

Thanks for your visit and nice comments guys!

Wow! Zoom x 2 and see the detail, the beautiful reflections in the river, and the gorgeous colours. This is a keeper, Jim, I love it! Theolfa

Hiya Jim,hows things with you??? There's a hell of a lot in this shot mate,"stretch" is the key word alright.Taken with a compact and hand held!! well your little Nikon has come up with the goods Jim.

Best wishes as always...Neil.

Theolfa~~~I find this place so irresistible Theolfa, I rarely walk by this spot without my camera! I treasure the little camera that was used for these images! The images are always sharp and endowed with good colour! The Y* and your lovely compliment is much appreciated!

Neil Grimwood~~Well thanks Neil, I'm thankful for your excellent feedback:) The Nikon I still use, shares many of the features as those in Si's new digicam! Only the most expensive cameras with equally expensive lens can better the sharpness of the Nikor zoom lenses!

To you both, I express my sincere thanks for your visit and lovely comments ;>)


Sigh on April 21, 2011

Aye, I had zoomed in on this twice today. I was going to leave the comment until after the usual barrage you get. It is excellent. What's more, something few will appreciate, the movement of the boats which is inevitable. The masts move far more the the boat its self. So stitching becomes a greater task. It's good, Jim. Well done to you.

Wow....is all I can say. It has all been said! It takes quite a while to go from left to right when enlarged x 2 on my computer but well worth it. Slow and easy is the key with so much to see! Y*....Well done :~)) and Happy Easter Jim.

Cheers, Rosa.

Pleasure craft taking over from the working trawlers is a sign of our times.

Super photo Jim, The concept and composition is excellent giving a very interesting perspective. CS5 did a great job stitching them together.

Best Wishes
