Did you use the warming filter on this one?

no, Ladyhawk, this is straight from the camera, no filters, no PP except stitching and some crop and resizing.

Beautiful, well done!!!!!!!!

were these taken handheld or on tripod. Also, do you use a leveling system?

I know this is novice questions, but that is what I am. I am looking a buying a new tripod, and have been considering one with a level of some sort. Just don't know what to get yet.

these were taken using my elbows on a picnic table as a tripod... i'm not sure if you mean 'leveling system' as a mechanical thing, or in software - i have leveling capability with my 'big' tripod, the heavy-duty one i use with my 30D, and i have Picasa 2, which includes a very easy-to-use straightening feature, but i didn't use either of those for this...

obviously, you're much steadier than I am. By leveling, I meant bubble or spirit level on the tripod. I see in the features on the tripods I have been looking at that some have this and some don't.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Thanks for your response. Appreciate it.
