Mostly good, except for the guy in "M&M"... I'd call that ugly...

Hi Mark!
What equipment were you using (I'm new to this group and not familiar with
the threads and contributors)?
Maui, in one word: Superb!
The pano is great and very colourful. I'm curious. How many photos are
combined, using what software, please?
Also, please accept my apologies for asking but do you retouch your photos?
What type of retouching, if any?
I've added your site to my Favourites ;-)
Cheers and thanks for giving me the opportunity.
Marcel

You are right.
I will make an effort to reduce them.
It's easy to forget this aspect when you're on a fast connection...

Nice typing!
What keyboard did you use??


Thank you.
These were shot with a Canon 10D using a mixture of the following:
70-200 2.8 IS
28-135 IS
16-35 2.8 L

I'm not really very experienced with doing panos...This was only my second
attempt. -My first attempt was actually shot 3 years ago, but not processed
until recently. I'll try to post that one soon.

That was only two shots, processed with a little plug-in which is associated
with ACDSee 7.0 (an image management program...not really an editor).

If by "re-touching" you mean adding color or elements where there is none,
then no...these have not been re-touched. I have adjusted levels which
effects how dark or bright, and contrast a bit (which helps reduce problems
with haze, etc.), but all colors remain intact.

> I've added your site to my Favourites ;-)


I've only just started posting shots, but I have many more of other
trips/subjects that will soon be up. You'll see more in the coming days if
you check back.
