Shouldn't landscapes be nice and wide? :hmz:
Something like this view towards the Quaqua area of Golden Gate?

I find it distracting that the lines aren't horizontal and vertical. I would also consider cropping it a bit tighter to the window maybe.

I'm also interested in the lighting. I assume you took this inside. Was there a door or another window on the opposite side?

Her? :shock: :lol: :lol:

But if you mean the photo, Yep!
I made something like 30 photos for this pano, and put them together with Autostitch (www.autostitch.net, a free program).

Yes the lines are a bit distracting but it was difficult..it was not a very straight window to start off with. :roll: Cropping closer would work ..but what I enjoyed about this scene was the constrast between the spectacular view and the delapidated walls...so I would not want to crop the walls.
The lighting..yes there was a open door directly opposite this window but the light did not really fall in the direction of the window..I underexposed by one full stop to eliminate blinkies that I was getting from the sky and I used flash to help light up the wall...

Thanks for the comments :thumbs_up:

Sure. I thought you might have used a flash but I wasn't sure due to the temperature of the light on the wall.
I hadn't realised that the walls weren't too straight to begin with :redface:

Only stumbled onto this topic. I just love the landscape in KNP. I think sometimes we forget to look at the surroundings. I would like some criticism, good or bad. It’s the only way to learn. I’m still a wannabe! Image
