Absolutely stunning, and thank you for saying how you’ve captured each.

I will have to try some manual HDR I think and in 20 years time if I get a pic half as good I’ll be happy!!!

Was the first Pano also a HDR?


Beautiful! Well done!

Thanks @Trailblazer @thebigmirror @Fly1 :+1: Tim, the first pano was not an HDR. In Photoshop I edited the sky on a separate layer from the land using curves and levels, to try and balance the exposure.

Wow, hats off to you for managing to get the depth of field to capture the sun and land so well.

A need my day job to let me spend hours playing with images to learn how to do this, rather than the boring stuff I have to do!

You’ve got some great skill, I’m jealous, and happy to admit it


Thanks Tim :blush:

Excellent photos. I’ve only ever seen it from afar on my way up from Stranraer to Blair Atholl. Makes me think about a detour :+1:
