Vale panorama

I decided to try another panorama.  This is Vale Cemetery, the north side of Cowhorn Creek.  It was a foggy day, but the fog doesn't really show in the more compact view.  Although some 14 inches of snow had fallen a few weeks ago, it's been so warm that there are many bare patches of ground here.  I'm standing on a gravel path that goes round the vale. The panorama shows the gentle hill across the way and the shape of the dingle sloping down to the water much better than a single image, so I'm pleased with the result.

F Number9.0
Lens IDLUMIX G VARIO 14-45mm F3.5-5.6
Focal Length14.0 mm (35 mm equivalent: 28.0 mm)
Exposure Time1/160
Exposure ProgramManual
Exposure Compensation0
FlashOff, Did not fire

I put the camera in Manual, and took all 3 images with the same settings. I overlapped about 40% of the frame for each image and used a program called Hugin to stitch them together into a single image. That image was a .tif file so I used the Gimp to export that as a .jpg.  I don't have much experience with post-processing, so I haven't purchased any programs; everything I use is free and open source.


  1. Nice scape!

    My first visit here and I find your inclusion of image data a useful one. Oh, good to know another Lumix user :)

  2. Thank you Kris! I really like the DMC-G1. Now I need to start using it for more than snaps.
