    The Great Ocean Road

    A fantastic view - here's hoping some non Aussie's will visit it.
    Taken from Neddy's lookout in Lorne.

    I only had my S5700, so I took a few photos and stitched them together.

    C&C most welcome, that is why I put it here.

    The Great Ocean Road

    What can I do to improve it?

    My issue - I had "improved" the photo, then deleted the wrong wrong from photobucket!

    Sorry to hear that... Sounds like something I would do. Until next time.

    Nice panorama Robin and thank you for the tip about Neddy's lookout. For some reason I have never come across it so next time I am down that way I will seek it out.

    I like the colour and composition as well as the subject matter. Not a lot I can suggest to improve it but perhaps check the horizon line. It looks to be dropping to the left a little or is that the curvature of the earth?

    I think you are right, and I hadn't noticed that. Too busy trying "unsucessfully" to lighten the dark bush section, and fix the join in the road where two photos were stitched together, it took four photos to make this panorama.

    Can you see the joins?

    I can't see the joins Robin so you have been successful with the stitching.

    Lovely shot; the central portion is a bit dark; can you please brighten up selectively ?
    Regards

    Beautiful composition, colours and lovely detail in the sky and the water. I can't see any join lines, and also think that it might be a nice touch if the mountains were a little lighter but it would change the mood of your image.

    Absolutely right, it was an operator error, that shot was not good, I have lightened it significantly, but it does need some more work.

    Now that I have had a couple of comments I think I will up the original stitched photo so you can have a close look at the joins.

    You can also see where I 'messed up' in PP and where somehow I created the centre dark section, and I "lost" the nice patch of green in there.

    This was my second attempt to get the Panorma right.

    I figure maybe it needs a 3rd attempt.

    Thank you for the C&C.
