It is hard to get a "perfect' panorama with the NEX, but this one came really good.

Good one Pako.

Very nice Dynax800si, Pako and Sury :D. Ewan certainly started off a flury of panoramas.

do you mean nex sony body


Gio67, I was just suggesting that sweep panorama may well become a standard feature in Sony vdslr as well as the Nex range. I hope it does :D.

Hi Paul,

For some nostalgic reason I liked the first shot more... :D They are both good documentry samples of the port....

In the mean time, I feel obligated to remind you that the talll ships of The Tall Ships Race Two from Kristiansand to Hartlepool, are about to arrive in Hartlepool in the next few days. Hansa (Spain), has already taken the Line Honours for crossing the finish line first! : )

They are imminent and I am very excited for them. : ) I'm sure they'll all look grand at Hartlepool...I miss them very much.

Looking forward to all your photos on The Tall Ships and the Parade of Sail as they will appear through your lenses!

Good luck!

Yildiz

Really nice panoramas Frank and Paul.

I have only visited Whitby a couple of times but I think it has a lot to offer the photographer with beaches, a busy harbour, and a very atmospheric abbey.

I was at Starbucks inside Barnes & Noble (bookstore) this afternoon and was thumbing through a British Journal of Photography that had a couple of lens reviews by David (Nikon 16-35mm f4 and another one). I had my pocket digicam and for some reason, which I don't quite know, I took it out and made a panorama. :) Here is a thumbnail:

Hi Henry, coffee and books, one of my wife's favourite ways to pass the time :D. I like the way the way the picture transistions from coffee space to book space, almost as if there is a complex stitch of two pictures being put together.

Well, actually it is a stitch of 6 photos. :) I know what you mean though. What you are seeing is the result of the architect and the B&N/Starbucks store designers. B&N pretty much always has a Starbucks in it where you can get some coffee and also take books/magazines off the shelves and look at them.

While sitting there at the table I happened to look up and think that I should make a panorama. I whipped out my digicam, yeah whipped it out, in one graceful, quick movement. Without even getting out of my chair I squeezed off 6 shots as I pivoted at the waist. I was surprised that the only person who even noticed was the second guy from the left. Light was a bit low so slow shutter speeds and he turned his head during the exposure of his frame. He seemed to be admiring my dexterity and how skilled I was in my camera whipping. Although it was unsaid, I felt like I could hear a cheery, "Bravo!"

We used to have a Borders book shop near here with a Starbucks inside that was one of our favourite places to visit when out shopping, it doesn't have the same appeal now its and HMV with Starbucks.

Continuing with the pano thread here are a couple from a recent visit to Bowes Museum

The approach to the house (8 images stitched)

Looking out over the front gardens from the terrace in front of the house (10 images stitched)

Those are great panos Paul - loads of detail and texture in the pictures. Looking at the front of the house I can't help but think "cleaning all of those windows must take ages!" 8)

Paul, may I guess that it is easier under cloudy condition? (even exposure)
Those shots are great.
