"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams

Mount Macedon

Heres another shot from my trip to Melbourne. This particular afternoon brought some great light onto these fields and the mountain. You can see the clouds that roll over the mountain which made for my foggy shot.

This is a 14 image stitch (my biggest yet) at around about a 5:1 ratio. It took about 45 minutes to stitch in PTGui and it took me about 15 minutes to clean up the dust covered sky.

I sold another copy of one of my Cottesloe photos just before going to melbourne at 24 inches, framed, and have just sold another copy this week at 16 inches matted. So when I got it printed yesterday I got the Woodend Farmland shot printed as well and it looked pretty nice!

Happy Shooting!

  1. Very nice shot Dylan, the warm golden field and blue sky with white highlights in the sky make for a very nice image.

    Cheers Neal.
    It took me awhile to get around to stitching this one, just cause I knew how long the old pc would take to deal with each new layer, and not to mention the amount of dust! The dust was UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    Nice shot Dylan , like the lighting .
    Yeah these big panos are a b*tch to process on computers once you start adding multipule layers .
    If you want to come over and use my artic butterfly some time to clean your senor feel free .
    Worked a treat on mine and only took a couple of mins .
