I’d shot a long exposure set of frames for a stitched panorama, a little after sunset at the small manmade lake at Cecil Hills, trying to do something wide but simplified with the stark horizon line, the dead trees and the awesome cracked mud flats in the foreground beside the lake

The panorama basically worked – in that it stitched together fine after a little exposure equalising with the source frames – but the resultant image wasn’t really doing it for me. The overall framing was off and perhaps too many things competing for attention in what was a very simplified scene (the sky was relatively flat except for some interest above the skeletal tree on the right) and the water in the middle was of course flattened by the long exposure

It looked like a reasonable candidate for a Panosphere (often called a Little Planet for somewhat obvious reasons) – frankly I was hoping something would save it – perhaps I was grasping at straws, but I liked the end result 🙂

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.
