Hi Jim,

looks really great, especially the distant mist effect is enchanting. Exposure looks very even through the whole panorama, which seems to be difficult to achieve.

Even my 24" screen is small for this and the stupid new Panoramio viewer did not let me view the original picture, but gave error message all the time.

Added to my favourites.

Best wishes, Timo

Very nice panorama, Jim. You show what's down the road in both directions. Like!

Giorgio Sari~~~~Vi saluto cordialmente Giorgio e grazie per il vostro bel complimento

GasGas~~~~Always a pleasure to receive your thoughtful comments Lex, thanks for the kind appraisal :)

Dean Matthews~~~On of the few fine mornings since the middle of March and I do so enjoy that refreshing early morning air and golden light..I think the photo captures a little of that atmosphere..Glad you enjoyed it Dean ;)

Samantha Lacy ღ~~~~~I'm delighted, as always, to see you here Sam..you always manage to cheer up my day with your inspirational words of praise ;) Big hugs sent your way :)) Freddie must be quite grown up these days, bless him :)

~Marlene~~~~It's good to be back Marlene :)) especially since you have left this lovely message for me to read..Your generous appraisal means a great deal to me..I look forward to visiting you soon!

jknaus~~~I greet you warmly Joni and thank you for your kind review and generous award!

cjlin~~~~Dear friend, I do so appreciate your visit and meaningful appraisal..The YSL means a lot, thank you!

©junebug~~~~~A very warm welcome Anne :) The mist came in so fast, only a few moments after taking this shot, the valley was completely shrouded in cold, clinging low cloud...like cotton wool!

ButsYV~~~~Your numerous visits and kind appraisals are much appreciated _Yuri :))

tmoj~~~Thanks for your interesting comments Timo :) The multiple shot technique is carried out very quickly..I scan the horizon by hand, ensuring that each frame over-laps the previous one by around thirty per cent. I usually orient the camera in the portrait position to give the panoramic good depth. I am guilty of up-loading large photos, I should learn how to reduce the resolution to make the photos quicker to load! I'm most grateful for your kind appraisal :)

Tiko en Argentina~~~I appreciate your nice comment!

cindy555~~~~I suspect that this view is now obliterated by tall weeds of jungle proportions since it has hardly stopped raining here in the UK for weeks :( Glad you liked it my friend!

Clive on Beara~~~~Well Clive, my alarm clock arrives on four legs at the very first signs of light or the first piercing crow of that darned cockerel, which ever comes first. Glad you liked it :))

MF(Meditation Falcon…~~~~~I'm honoured to receive your wonderful comments and kind appraisal, especially the YSL ;)

Geezer Vz~~~~~It's a pleasure to receive your visit and thoughtful observations Guy :) I hope that you are recovering from your ordeal...As for the view, I am seeking to improve on the rather distorted effect that I currently achieve when stitching with PS8.

To you all, I express my profound thanks for your friendly visits and for taking the time to express your considered opinions of which I truly value !!

Kind regards!

Grand recording of the wastness! I liked.

tmoj on June 25, 2012

Hi Jim,

do I understand correctly that you do this handheld, without tripod? It is even more difficult. I have done it a few times, but typically tend to get clearly visible broken lines at the borders between the individual images.

Best wishes, Timo

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on June 25, 2012

Stoja~~~~I greet you warmly Stoja and thank you kindly for your generous appraisal, the YSL means a lot to me, thank you!

SamadT~~~~It is always a pleasure to welcome you these pages _Samad and I value your lovely compliment ;)

tmoj~~~~~Hi Timo :) I only use a tripod when the exposure time is greater than 1/10 of a second since the inbuilt image stabiliser copes with my shaky hands. If I am shooting images for a panorama, I have discovered that, with a little care, I can usually reproduce almost perfectly stitched, seamlessly blended images with the minimum of effort. Here's how!

#1. using manual settings with a smallish aperture (about f6 to f8) this gives a good depth of field, exposure time depends on how good is the light. and I first take a test shot and adjust the time to my satisfaction.

#2. Starting from the left of shot, I take one frame, then I overlap that frame in a CW direction by around 60% and take another shot. I keep repeating this until I have covered the entire scene. The secret is keeping the camera on a reasonable horizontal plane and ensuring that there are "like" features in each frame that can be matched or linked. Photoshop will take care of most mis-alignment

#3. I then download all the images into my pictures library and check them for quality.

#4. Using Adobe Photoshop from PS6 and above, I select "EDIT"

#5. When the page opens, select "File" and a drop down menu will appear from which you select "New"-----anther small menu box will appear with a choice of selections, click on the one that says "Photomerge Panorama"

#6. A sub-page (Photomerge browser) will appear on the edit page asking you to "browse"..Clicking on this will allow you to access any of your photo libraries. Simply open each of your Panoramic picture frames in turn with the browser until your panoramic is complete. Click "OK" on the "Browser" and patiently wait several minutes for the process to complete. The new Panoramic may show a few visible dotted lines but these will disappear if you follow the next instruction.

#6. Save your Panorama to your picture files in JPEG.

#7. Re-open the file in Photoshop, none of the dotted lines should be visible and each frame should blend seamlessly into the next, now you can edit the colour, contrast, sharpness etc until you are satisfied with the result..Then save it as a copy.

Good luck with the editing Timo..Those procedures work for me :))

I'm most grateful to you all for your visits and kind appraisals
