Thanks to all of you

- Mrclean06 it's a FZ20 and none of the FZs has a PanoraMA function like some Canon, Olympus and others. But if you shoot them right, with a 15% common edge between the photos, Panorama Maker (3) is more efficient of Canon's Photostitch (at least the version I had with my old Powershot A300).

- Bayourebel that was a remote location, where no one would go to take berries. I ate a lot there, anyhow.

- Tcook I missed these shots of PM eating a hummer. Anyhow the mantis in my shots is the biggest I have ever seen, about 9cm from head to bottom.
I have already been on that mountain in the recent years:

It's very hard to get there although the top is only 1660m, but you start from 1000m lower.

Thanks Macnite

I really like panos. and when the landscape is worth that, I use to compose "mosaic" panos in order to get many MP images for future prints.
Next week for the first time I ll see some large prints from my FZ20, after nearly 2 years I have it

Francesco,
That pano is terrific. Can't tell where the stitch-lines are. I am working with Double Take (macintosh) and still trying to perfect the technique. The other photos in your galleries are also very good, particularly the macros. Very beautiful location. Thanks for sharing.
Daniel

Thanks Daniel

I generally edit the full size pano (in this case the original is only 4Mb, a 5400 x 1700 pixels pano (3 horizontal shots) but sometimes I really do exhaggerately big ones.

However you could never see the lacks in the resized image and this time I used a polarizer with fixed shutter speed and aperture, light was uniform so I had no problem in the sky-

I m posting some panos I took at the sea in the next hours. And tomorrow's trekking will be a great one...

Please send me a mantis, Francesco!

My son still waits for good shots of this creature taken by his slave, pardon father!

The weather is quite cold up here, makro season will end soon :-(

- my favorite: the panorama -
