    My "Stepped-in the Rock Pool" Panorama that is.....

    I did a trip down to Victoria recently and visited the Mt Buffalo area.
    Lady's Bath Falls ore just inside the Mt Buffalo Park and more than
    worth the short 400m walk.... they are that nice they almost look to
    be landscaped!
    I shot quite a few images here one foggy morning, but this is one that
    I shot from the middle of the rock pool in waste deep water.

    Yes the water was cold, but I had my waders with me.

    Camera was nodal rotated using my pano rig of course. ;-)

    Cheers

  3. Trust you to post a superb image that has my pet hate - white sky...
    I've taken a few good foggy photos, but not as good as that..

    Brilliant work, Rusty.

    Don't think it needed all that at the bottom, its a bit distracting.
    About half way between the rock and the bottom of the image. Would have
    liked to see a bit more of the rocks which were cut off at the top.

    And in reality its not nodal. (but you will have to ask Doggie about that.)

    BTW - I'm now working on a new simpler universal setup to mount my
    camera should have it welded up next week. - no racks all manual and clamps.

    Very nice - bet it was as cold as a witch's tit tho. I guess
    that's the difference between a very good photographer
    such as yourself, and me. Wading out into the middle of a
    freezing cold pool to get a fantastic photo? Bugger that!!!

    I really like it. As the others have commented, the white sky
    doesn't really detract. The clarity under the water draws me to
    look at the bottom half of the photo.

    Thanks Jeff.... no walking pano for me I'm afraid, as I am one of the
    now "insignificant" non-believers... unless it's flat field pano of
    course ;-)

    Then there would be too much plain sky and no reflections.
    Personally I think the photo could be even better at a different time, but
    we all know the problem of wishing we were there on a better day.

    Yeah there is one part of me looking forward to the day when the kids
    have moved out and I can hang in one spot until the light and weather
    is just perfect (while the wife reads or visits the local craft
    shops) ....then there is a big part of me that is soooo not looking
    forward to that day. :(

    I would be willing to devote days if not weeks to getting an "OMG
    Brilliant - No room for improvement" shot, but like most people,
    normal life must go on and obligations to others must be met.

    I guess a single man would find things a whole lot easier.

    "Days", "weeks", my god you are keen!
    Only if they have nothing better to do!
    I just make a mental note to go back at a better time, and like with most
    people, it hardly ever happens :)

    No not that much top the little peek which has been cropped 1/3 way from
    the left.

  16. Another great shot, I know the feeling about the cold water, have done a
    few in the same invironment. Makes it worth while when you see the results.

  17. Wouldn't it be great to go to a spot early in the morning for the morning
    light, sit all day reading or writing memoirs, then shoot the afternoon
    golden hour.

    That's what our old mate Ansel used to do at Yosemite.

    Only the photog's gallery URL remains constant. eg: using their
    username like this http://www.potd.com.au/gallery/adpotd

    The URL to an image page within coppermine changes each time a new
    photo is loaded to an album. Actually the URLs remain the same but
    the images all move along one to make way for new images.... kinda
    like people shuffling along a bus station seat to make room for
    someone else.

    There may be a mod available for static URLs to images... I will go
    have a look shortly.

    Yep.... it's almost a full 360 degree FOV made from 26 images in
    portrait orientation.

    Cheers
