    Uncropped huh? That's a hell of a wide sensor your camera has - or was the
    extra picture on the right and left produced by your interpolation
    algorithm?

    Nice observation Poxy...
    I know it's fine to say this after the event but I meant FULL FRAME WIDTH. I
    cropped the top to make a 1600mm wide canvas panorama for a guy and just
    downsized the print file when I probably should have (To suite you) used the
    original file to make the computer image. You get this, around here, you
    know?

    Clearly it didn't fool you for a second, you cagey bugger. You knew after
    careful measurement and precise computation there was something amiss,
    didn't you? Great stuff Poxy.

    I'm pretty new at this cropping thing. Coming from the old school of
    composing in the camera for maximum enlargement capabilities from film, I'm
    still bogged in tradition in that area. But you get that too when and old
    fart marries a beautiful tart and lives with her in total bliss for as long
    as I have! Sort of helps make the world full of kooks out there a bit fuzzy
    if you know what I mean?

    Hey, you're the one who stipulated that it was "uncropped" in your posting -
    I'm not sure why you thought it worth mentioning, but the aspect ratio of
    the picture you posted was obviously wider than normal. I thought for a
    moment you might have used an anamorphic lens.

    Nice pic, but it seems to have suffered some rather severe posterisation -
    you might want to check your conversion settings.

    :
    The "severe posterisation" is actually what happens when you save it as an 8
    bit, 64 or 128 colour, PNG file or if it's a JPEG (Can't remember off hand)
    it's had the same treatment and been converted back to a JPEG.

    Why on earth would you trash your images that way, when it's totally
    unnecessarily? I don't recall whether you normally shoot raw or JPEG,
    but either way, you should always generate your different-sized copies
    directly from your highest quality original.
