English Panoramas

I create the panoramas below, mostly taken in the English Lake District, using several individual frames, taken carefully in situ to allow for the same exposure for each shot, with plenty of overlap from one frame to the adjacent one and careful horizontal alignment. I then stitch these together using software. The resulting panoramas below vary from 2 to 7 frames joined together.

Please be aware, that in order to do the fabulous scenery justice, the main images are rather large, at around 500KB.

I've put together a tutorial of personal tips on my workflow for producing these panoramas.
