    Thanks Erik - glad you like it :-)

    The pano was created using a method that was recommended to me here on this group a couple of years ago. It involves using PTGui to create a template for the stitch, then applying it.

    Take all of the files shot at one exposure - usually the lightest one (or the mid-exposure one) - whichever one contains the most detail for the stitching to work with. Do the stitch as desired (PTGui has many options). Output the file. Then, within PTGui, save that stitch as a template. When you load the files at another exposure, you can apply the template - which guarantees that the exact same geometry, etc. have been applied - so they will exactly line up.

    Having done that for each exposure, I then layer those files in PS - and use layer masks to brush them in as desired.

    This method works much better than stitching each set of files in PS - because the different exposures get stitched differently due to differing details being visible at each exposure. It is also better than exposure blending each file before stitching - as you will find it very hard to do that consistently across the scene when you can only see a slice of it at a time.

    It's a method that needs patience and a systematic workflow, but produces very controllable and precise results.

    Ed,

    Thanks, I need to look into that.

    I have some images that need that kind of treatment.

    Best regards

    A couple more from the Adirondacks: red pines in a setting sun and the riot of color.

    Lake Superior. IQ180, Mamiya 28 mm. Hand held. A quick snatched shot when a solitary ray of sun hit the rocks, no time to erect a tripod.

    Hi Pramote:

    Thanks, this is a two-shot focus stack at f/8 using the 600mm A*. You admired the colors in a previous posting of mine. It too was using the 600mm; I guess you'll have to buy one for your 645Z . This is Dante's Inferno after all.

    Thanks Tom FYI. I've learnt over the past few months the 645Z with Pentax lenses are lower for only their prices but not their IQ. You've been proving this statement with your 645D for years as long as I've been a member here.

    Thanks again for sharing your fantastic work.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Drove up to Cloudland Canyon state park near the GA/TN border this afternoon on a whim and did some waterfall shooting. Blew the highlights unfortunately but still came out ok. Has a magenta hue because of the reflection of the sunset into the canyon...not sure if I like it though and might correct the cast. H4D-40 w/35-90, 23s.

    Thanks for your kind words Erik - and nice shots yourself! Those ones of the waterways between industrial buildings remind me somehow of Yorkshire and Lancashire mill towns.
