Baudolino, very nice image.
great work Graham!
I used 5 shots, with 0, 10 & 15mm total rise & fall with the 47 Apo Digitar. I have lens mounted to the tripod so effectively it's back rise/fall.
With respect to filters, no - I shot LCC images for each shift shot and used C1 Pro to correct for light fall off. Even with my P40+ & the Schneider there was an element of light drop off at 15mm+ and I can see that the LCC processing may have introduced some noise at the extremes (not sure if it might have been over correction as I used my 4x4 Expodisc rather than CI LCC card for this).
Note to self: maybe should have focused at 10m ...

Great shot, Graham. Shame about that darn bridge getting in the way of nature's beauty - but I'd put that on my wall any time!
I wasn't certain that I'd have enough rise/fall with the Alpa & 47mm to get it all in and in fact I had to tilt the camera to get this shot. This was my first real attempt at extreme rise/fall vs stitch with the Alpa and I may go back and have another stab at it as I realized that my coiled sync cable had pinched between the body & lens mount. This restricted the fall to 15mm and I can actually go to 25mm which would have eliminated having the tilt. Luckily this is 20 minutes from home and so 'next time' is an option.
Without the bridge (colorized B&W original from wiki), although you'd need a time machine back to before 1914 for this view:
End of the day shots :
Too many people here on this spot :
Last light in the sky :
Both shot with PhaseOne P25+, Hasselblad 501cm, Distagon 50mm FLE.
Thanks Dick, For these two shots, i have used a polarizing filter.
Morant's Curve near Lake Louise in Banff
Pentax 645d w/P67 55-100mm lens
645DF + 300mm 2.8 + GigaPan Epic Pro...it works!
I hope I'll be able to post some results soon...
I take the pictures manually, which is actually the better way IMO(with this camera). I get about 18x18k px with 12 pictures, so I don't need that much images for a panorama.
But I'll maybe try to build a cable in the future.
making a forum leap here, but i found these landscapes to be quite interesting and well executed
I'm a big fan of William Neill - I particularly like his approach to subject matter, I.e. If in doubt, landscape your own property to create some interesting subjects at home

Paris, Pont des Arts. Taken with Phase One DF + Leaf Aptus II 10 + Phase One 28mm f4.5
from this morning, H3D-39, 35-90
these were all focus stacked with Helicon
lasst one, single shot, my fave
Nice series John, looks like you're having fun with the new lens! My fav is the one with the frost or icicles
thanks jack, weather conditions like Moab!
btw, in loading from my gallery, to get a full size image i had to delete the "-thumb" suffix from the image address. ??? I rt clicked on the image and used the copy image address command
I am also getting a shift of the image compared to what the viewfinder sees (the real image will miss the top portion (landscape mode) of what the finder is showing, and I framed too tightly
Emerald Lake, BC @ -22C
Pentax 645d, 55-100 mm Lens
10 photo stitch
defaults: B, 8 radius, 4 smoothing
using 3 or 4 images
Following John's good example with a focus stack. H4D-60 + HC 300 lens. 8 exposures focus bracketed and stacked in Helicon Focus. I've said elsewhere that the 60 meg back gray scale conversions look more like LF silver halide than any other digital camera that I've ever used.
from the texas leica..
My first pic from my latest arrival, the 50mm Mamiya shift lens.
Hand-held last evening at 1/45 f8 (widest safe working aperture I hear) Mamiya 645AFD/Aptus 22 ISO 100. About 10mm rising front.
Still had to do a bit of perspective work in PS after converting in C1. And there’s some distortion still to remove.
!00% screenshot from PS of lower right.
Happy so far.
Note: was tired and emotional while doing this.
Will have another go at some stage ...
The 35mm lens arrived at the same time. Last night 1/180 f3.5 in the back yard (same info as house and dog shot). Processed in C1 with underexposure and vignetting.
Bokeh’s a bit wiry, but.
Hi David - Wind can be interesting fortunately we get a lot of it down here..this is a small crop of a panorama - maybe I shoudl find an old fred miranda frame making macro for posting stuff on web - then again...maybe not
I am looking forward to finalising the new toy -

Export as color tiffs from Phocus using Phocus to produce good full scale histograms and appropriate sharpening and noise reduction (no noise reduction needed here); images imported to LR and stitched in PS; perspective correction in LR (very slight in this image); minor spotting in sky areas in LR; convert to grayscale in LR; in LR: add "shoulder" and "toe" to tone curve, use B&W mix sliders to simulate a yellow or "minus violet" filter (darken blues and lighten oranges and yellows), add post crop vignetting to simulate edge burning in a wet darkroom; restrained use of the adjustment brush in LR (simulating dodging and burning); apply split toning preset in LR; final touch up of exposure in the tone field in LR. Keys are to start with a good exposure, get it right in Phocus, avoid overuse of any of these manipulations, use the fill light and clarity sliders sparingly if at all and don't over sharpen. The whole process in LR takes a couple of minutes max.
