    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).

    > Also, please accept my apologies for asking but do you retouch your

    > What type of retouching, if any?


    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.
