Check out my second attempt at a pano taken in San Diego during a Scout hike two weeks ago. It's a bit beefy, weighs in at around 43megs. Made from 18 images total. Original image size was 5184 x 3456 pixels. Final is 29,567 x 2136. C&C's welcome, but this is straight from the camera and stitched together with no post processing. My intent was to get the clean pano.

Soooo, anyone know where I can get an odd sized photo printed?

My stuff:
A low-light hi-def rapid shooter, a sniper, a couple old school 35s.

Some L, a nifty f/1.4, a kit IS, some slow EFs and two crappy Qs.

Sorry, it took too long to download, I gave up. You should try zoomify to display something like this on the web.

Don't be sorry. I mentioned it's size so you could decide to look at it or not. I average about 200k/s download and it wasn't too bad. Took a min or too.

Well, I could download it and look at it in detail.

Yes, you did a good job in the exposures, the divisions lines are barely there.

My question is what do you see, other than the adequate series of exposures, that would be worth the printing? There is absolutely no feature in the landscape that would make me stop and look at it.

I don't want to seem harsh, but I think you have the technique down--go find a landmark area or a scene with some visual interest and do it again.

Thanks for looking. The series of exposures was the intent from the beginning. My plan is not to print this, but to get the technique dialed in so I can duplicate it at an event I'm covering this weekend at a (newer) track in my area. The first one I did kicked my ass. I was just real happy I got this far and wanted to share. :p

Now, you're talking. This was the practice shoot. Go for it and post the results, just be sure to be as meticulous when you are at the event--it is so easy to get distracted when people are around.

I know. I was on a scout hike when I took these, and the guy that was "bringing up the rear" took his job way too seriously. (He had a bum leg to boot, go figure why they'd put him in the back).

Anyway, every time I stopped to wait for the scouts to go by so I could get a clean shot he would stop and wait for me. Like I was gonna get left behind or something.

I kind of felt bad because when I'd stop to get my shot then walk fast to catch up with my boys and wife again he'd be stuck back there trying to keep up with his bum leg. :o

It's the Mt. Gower Open Space Preserve that's out in Ramona's Country Estates.

Hey Rekd,

I got into photography recently, and I live in San Diego. Where are some really nice places to go take photos? Any recommendations?

Hey Rekd,

What kind of photos? Landscapes, beaches, mountains, sunsets, planes, people, sports, deserts?

I'd say start in the back country (Julian, Alpine, Campo, Sunrise Highway, etc), and move over to the beaches for a bit to grab some surfers and sunsets.

Balboa park is a great place, so is Old Town. You might try Palomar Mtn for some landscapes and motorcycles and sports cars.

There are some places on the 67 going towards Ramona where you can be in the mountains and get pictures of the beach, on a clear day.
