One of the few advantages of this time of year is the great afternoon light, so here's a couple taken just before sunset. Apologies for the width of this one, but I like panorama's as you may have noticed! :-)

And another Dartmoor shot.

The red bracken on the hillsides here has almost all good now: the recent snow combined with heavy rain last week has flattened it all down

Regards, John.

Good panorama John. You really have it down. What technique do you use when shooting? Do you use a level or any other tools to help?......Cheers........thekman.

That's one of the best pano's I've seen posted on this site (well, actually the best in my opinion).

Hey! Thanks for all the kind words, I nearly didn't post those (wasn't sure if they were up to the usual standard or not), which just goes to show how hard it is to judge your own pictures I guess....

Technique? Me? :lol:

Both of these were taken hand held: the second is four frames in a 2x2 grid, the first was eight images with the camera virtical, all stitched with autostitch - but using manual stitch settings rather than the one-click approach. Ideally using a tripod does help a lot - you can't see it at this size but the first image is actually spoiled by camera shake in just one of the frames (it was freezing cold and my hands evidently weren't as steady as they should have been!). I also find that my camera wants to under-expose in near-dusk conditions, so I take some test shots of the scene until I'm reasonably happy with the exposure across the whole scene before I actually do the panorama.

HTH, John.
