[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pano stitch of Illal Lake was taken on the start of our hike, whereas the other Illal Lake shot which I posted yesterday was taken on our way back.
I'm still not happy with the stitching results on this one; particularly in the sky. I think the problem lies in the fact that I had the polarizer on and it was giving uneven polarizing effects to the sky as I was panning the shots. Next time I'll do the pano without the polarizer.
Yesterday's post was taken down by that beachy area near the middle of the lake. This one is posted in order to get a fuller sense of the lake and the area around it.
There is an obvious fisheye effect taking place here but I personally like the effect with this pano.

Hello Tim! Very interesting landscape. Wonderful mountain. Beautiful clouds. Very original shot.

Well taken, but extra wide distortion is there.

Tim. I think it looks quite seamless. The scene is one that deserves a panorama shot. I thought you could upload them in a very large scale here. I have yet to find out how, but this one should be.

I like it and it's better than I could do! Your colors are so wonderfully rich thanks to the polarizer I suspect so it's hard to make that decision to drop that wonderful tool.

Wow...another technique I can now try. See? You are also a good teacher. Fine shot to use as an example. You certainly have photography down like a natural.
