    Hey guys, this is my first real attempt at making panoramics with my new D70s. I think they turned out pretty good but then again i could be wrong :biggrin: . So please tell me what you think, Any critique or feeback would be great.

    The first shot is only 2 images that i sitched together.
    WaterFall-Pano.

    This is actually 6 photos that I took at crazy angles to create the feeling of a fisheye or wideangle lens. I thinks its crazy. I am sure its not technically correct in any way, but I love the feeling that this image gives.
    Forrest-Pano.

    So pleas let me know how you feel, Thank You

  2. paul, I like the first image very much. I too kind of like the effect in the second image, but it is inconsistant from left to right (the effect) and therefore is distracting to the eye. I live these deep wood images so keep em coming, you had a great day for shooting.

    I really like them both.
    I do like the effect of the second one.
    Good imagination.
    I think what may be distracting in the second is the bright patch...
    May a bit of PS playing could fix :>))

    Couple of cool glow action at

    www.atncentral.com might try.

    I love to play with them and different things. Paint with light is really cool to.
    Takes some time to get real good with it though.

    Find thread here at DPR retouching forum.. I hang around there all the time. Some really great PS gurus there.

    Have some fun :>))

    Doug Barber used to be there at one time helping us alot. But he is off to different ventures now. He is sorely missed for sure. Feivel is badly missed as well. But they have gone to other fields so to speak.

    I really like the second shot. Even though the eye wanders and it has distractions it doesn't confuse or destroy the mood. It is a good shot where a lost focal point seems not to matter to much. They turned out very well.

  6. I like them both, Paul. The 2nd one is a bit 'weird' but I like the mood. Well done.

    I like #1, but the distortion on the right side of #2 is a little distracting to the image. You nailed the mood part of it though. Good job.

    Paul gets another A+.....A vertical pano? Nice Bra. And the second manipulated image is nice too. The large white void left seems to work pretty well in this asymetrical comp. If it were mine, I'd bring it down a notch with CS highlight recovery....but it's not mine. :rolleyes:

    How do you do the "Highlight recovery", I have Adobe CS2 and I would love to have more information on this. Thank you
