Isn't it fascinating how dynamic the sky can be? (And frustrating too, sometimes.)
Just this AM, I sat down to run the Commuter Assistance Network on ham radio, looked out the window and saw a glorious partial moon, hanging halfway up the sky. I messed with my computer a couple of minutes...
I'm bringing this over from a previous post. It's a five-shot panorama captured with my HX400V, stitched together with ICE, and romanced with Luminar. I think it is my best image to date in trying to capture the epic grandeur of the skies.
That looks like a Maxfield Parrish painting . . . are you sure that's not a painting??:wink:
Seriously . . . lovely shot!
Don't you just love the infinite variety of the skies and how dynamic they are?
Kind of you to say. I'm particularly fond of the way the combo of the OMD EM5 II and the Oly 17mm renders the sky. It's pretty much what you see is what you get.
There are some subtleties of the interplay of light around the edges of the clouds that the combo doesn't quite grab, but I've done...
What Luke said!
What lovely, intriguing images . . . you are, indeed, "the nightstalker."
Come on, give: are these in-camera panos created by panning on the tripod or did you stitch separate exposures together? Was there a lot of post-processing?
Waaaay cool! Did the phat bike live up to your expectations?
Speaking of old dogs and new tricks, I turned 70 this year and took up kayaking. I'm expecting deliver of a "rugged " camera shortly.
I totally agree. I find that superzooms offer their own special combo of attributes that relate to: (1) There's no such thing as too much reach (it's like too much fun, not possible), (2) there are a lot of times you can't zoom with your feet, and (3) a unique viewpoint not otherwise possible...
Wow, those are interesting pix.
And, Ray, your shot looks like it was taken at f/64 . . . amazing detail.
It sounds like you both had to go through the horrors of the damned to get those lovely pictures. I suspect that in five minutes, I would be wondering how far I could throw the camera...
