Lake District panoramas
« on: August 31, 2018, 07:00:07 am »

The light wasn't the best, which is probably why I didn't bother to process these for so long. But now I've done so, maybe they're not so bad

I like them.

But isn't that what is called a bright, sunny day in the Lake District?  ;)

In the first image, given that the title suggests the road is the main subject, I wish I could see more of it, at least extended into the right hand corner. It appears cut off otherwise.

On a different note, have you tried black and white?

I think this diffused light is ideal for this kind of scape. I like the second one. There is much promise in this location.

Both color and B&W are lovely. If the sky was blue, they'd be less evocative and expressive.

I agree with Slobodan regarding the road, though. Love to see is as part of the sense of place.

I think the road photo looks better in colour. Of the first two you posted, I much prefer the second, but there's quite a marked halo on the skyline to the right (in both colour and b&w versions).

The road pix draws me in, entices me to go there and entices me to see for myself. Cool!

Are these stitched pano's or cropped pano's Bill?

Out of the four, I really like the fourth mono road shot, because as mentioned

and I totally agree  :)

Dave

cropped panos. The sky was pretty uninteresting, so cropping made sense

The "road" in color is the best, I think.  It has more depth.

Bill I have been trying to persuade people that the sun always shines in Cumbria and you post shots like this >:( . Back on topic, I like the colour version of the road shot a lot and will look out for the tree on my next visit as it balances the Langdales perfectly. Ken
