Hi all,

Appreciate any C&C on the following image. This is about 20 shots taken in a portrait view at 20mm, then stitched together using CS3. Ended up with a rather large 42MP image after cropping and all that. Unfortunately the JPEG has come out a little over-saturated, but I kinda like it that way.

We were on our way back from Bath, and just past the university is this great hill which is really quite steep. It's quite busy (I waited in-between shots for cars to go past) but you get a great view, and obviously we had a really nice day for it as well.

Also, for those of you are interested in this kind of stuff, my car was originally in the image:

Took a few hours of cloning, but I got there in the end. At 100% it is a little obvious that I've cloned a very small area, but really you're not going to be viewing it at that resolution.

First one is great. Very, very nice work. In the second, the car looks more like a sloppy mistake instead of being put there intentionally, just mho though.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Not quite sure what you many about the car though; the second shot was the 'before', then I cloned out the car in the top shot. I was quite vague though so probably good for me to clarify :-)

I was too. When I said "put there", I meant caught in the frame. And that's some good cloning work by the way.

The car is distracting, but helps to tell the story. Tough call, but I'd go for the image without the car.

Really good image Dave. You have managed to control the exposure really well across the 2o frames. Not easy shooting into the sun!
