Beautiful panoramas, Dennis. The fall colors are wonderful.

It looks like you were travelling with a group. Were you on an organized photo excursion? How did that work out for panorama shooting?

Judy,

Dave Wyman conducts several trips all over the place each year. He does not spend any time in front of a computer showing you how to use Photoshop. Each day from before sun up to after sun down you are in the field shooting.

Since I use a monopod, it is so very easy to shoot panoramas. I tried shooting stills during my first trip with Dave. I gave up because stills are just not my area of interest. That is not to say that I did not get some great animal pictures. Since a monopod is so very portable, it was not an issue shooting panoramas. 4 around plus an hand held Nadir can be very quick to shoot. A monopod is also very easy to take in and out of the van. I spent no more time shooting panoramas than other people did shooting stills. We had one joker who insisted on using a tripod and three different cameras at each stop. So much time was wasted waiting for him. He was always the very last one to get back into the van, even after Dave had a talk with him.

I ended up posting about half of what I shot. You will notice the absence of jet trails in the sky. I did not notice this until after I got back home and started processing all the panoramas.

Burake,

Thanks for the compliment. You have to work at it to mess up panoramas taken at such a great location.

I am using the multiresolution feature of Pano2VR. I am able to use a higher detail setting with quicker download speeds than when creating a single .swf file. I don't know the details on what Pano2VR does. All I know is that it does work.

Multiresolution? I remember that tutorial..Looks to be a very good idea...With so much details in the trees like branches, leaves, all that grass etc on the ground I guess the size of a single flash output would be huge otherwise...Keep on posting your beautiful work...
