More Flowers and a Pano

I have a few more photos from the museum gardens that I first posted earlier on Monday: two peony photos and and one clematis.




I am also about to show you a sunrise pano that I took. There was no particular reason to shoot a pano, but I like to keep myself amused.


It is 7-photos stitched together into one. Straight out of the merge, I could have printed a high resolution photo that would have been 4 feet long (not that I have the equipment to do that). Of course, the scaled-down version that you are seeing would print only at ~3.5 inches.

But I wouldn't print it even if I could because I don't think it is good enough in general, and it is also not sharp enough. The trees on the left are a wee bit blurry, and the ones that stretch across the horizon are a little fuzzy too. You would want a photo to be pretty much perfect if you were going to go to the expense of printing at that size. Think of the amount of ink! I am not sure why I missed nailing the focus, but I did.

The original image was so big that my photo programs had to chug away at it for quite awhile. Since I will never print it, I have since scaled down the image size to about half of the original size. That will leave me with a good version should I ever require it. Which I won't.

Wow on the pano. My fav of this bunch is the Clemantis.

Four foot?! Wow, that is some photo. I guess you see more faults than I do, because I think it is a really good photo.

Peonies will be out here next week I suspect. Your photos are gorgeous!

At this size and resolution, the trees look fine. I am working on a pano of one of our swamps for the YG. It is frustrating as the light values do not quite match. The alternative is three photos side by side in one frame ... that is a style I like a lot, but will have to sell,to,the offspring.
Nice hat and shirt below, btw. I like the shirt message too. How,do,we,clean up such a sad mess as those kids portray.

Once you pointed it out, I could tell that the trees were blurry. Yet the colors were so spectacular that they make up for it.

Flowers and sunrise! cute photos! Since you know so much about photography, you see a lot of faults. For others, they are nice photos

I especially like the pano (new lingo for me). :-)

Love the peonies, and that is one gigantic pano, which looks good to my old eyes. :-)

Interesting info on combining photos. Also, you were spot on with your comment to my latest blog entry ... it never works to combine religion and politics.
