Panoramas with Carpathian mountains (part 1)

posted on 16th of july, 2008

© Emicristea (Help) © Emicristea (Help) © Emicristea (Help) The panoramic photography is used quite often by the mountaineers in order to show the mountains area due to the wide fields of view.
Often the panoramic photography can replace a map (when the sky is clear) for those who know (or if it appears on the photo) the toponyms of the area.

The panoramic photography is used more and more in the touristic descriptions, on mountains websites or travel guide books.
Here you can see some of my panorama pictures from Carpathian Mountains.

Hello Ratmanddude.
You cand see in EXIF that this images are made with normal camera. Composition is from three to ten images (depends on my frame ideea).

When you shoot for panoramas you have to make the composition pictures in portrait format (even if you need to make more frames in this position than in landscape position). The advantage is that you make panoramas with bigger height and you don`t make distortion of the light from corner to corner.

Is an disadvantage in Dreamstime to see a preview of a panorama because the lenght is limited to some pixels, and the buyer can`t see the details of panoramas to choose one for his needs.

But is a protection for us, because our work can`t be still at some resolution that someone can use it on webpages (for examples).
