Several images stitched together to form a panorama of Cromer Pier from the road above.
The blobs in the water to the right are a group trying to learn how to surf...notice the lack of waves...
Hand held, cropped and rotated a little to balance the horizon.

Absolutely excellent photography here - you maintained a perfect exposure on each of the images you stitched together to blend them seamlessly. Not only over the top photography but very skillful and exacting technique to stitch them together. Might want to consider printing this one out and having it printed as a poster and then selling it to the owners of the cafes and shops along this pier.

I like your viewpoint for this "stitched" composition with the perspective along the pier. The contrast between the pier and the relative lightness of the water helps to make the pier stand out with a strong presence.

I shall be in Cromer at the end of October and have the pier in mind. Last time I was there it was summer and there were delivery vans in the foreground of the pier. I like your stitched picture -

Such a great location to visit and setup for a panoramic, I like the view and all that can be seen.

Good stitch job Rob and well done on maintaining the brightness and contrast. I believe my Olympus is supposed to automatically lock that in once the panorama mode is selected, maybe i am holding my mouth wrong.

I love the art deco type steps and foreground, which you have captured well with your pano; I would like the horizon to be level, but maybe you wanted that effect.

It seems I'm the only one who can see the joins. AS the exposure appears to be constant I think you took too many shots and have too much overlap (mainly noticeable away from the frame edges). It is the wide overlap that causes the darker joins. Using a longer focal length (45-60mm) should give you a straight horizon although that is not important since fish-eye lenses give a semi-circular horizon and are prized for that very effect.
As a lover of all things Art Deco I very much like the foreground design too.

Rob, Hi:

Splendid POV for this very professionally processed image. Wonderful clarity with a great deal to see in the image. The weather is a state of constant change at Cromer Pier it seems.


I see the seems, as well, but unlike Vic I can not explain how to resolve the issue - so will learm from the comments Vic as made.
