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.
