  Mini#38 Best of 2017
Entry 7 of 36
Beach Stroll       ©2018 jomari
Panasonic DMC-FZ70       7th place, 112 points
1/125s, f8, ISO 100, 20mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Straighten, Topaz Studio hdr and another Topaz studio filter in the landscape range (I can no longer remember which one) blended at 50 per cent opacity. After resizing I had to crop 1 pixel off the height to meet the measurement constraints.       Extra Info: This is a panoramic sweep single exposure. The sky was full of interesting clouds this day.

    Thanks for all the comments and votes.
Elliott, I was surprised that you identified me. I guess it's because I had the other shot from this location in the open and I've had one very like that one in before. Good memory!

    What a shot! On the right side it looks like an ant farm above ground. Awesome wide angle shot.

    A very effective technique. I like the 'peep hole' result in the centre of the photograph.

    You've done a great job of capturing the uniqueness and sheer scale of this landscape. The turbulent sky really adds to the drama.

    jomari, love this location! i'm always fascinated by rock formations. with this location, i know you want to share more of the scene with a pano or stitch. the curvature of the clouds is a slight distraction for me in this shot. not sure how to remedy that short of shooting on cloudless day.
we spent a few hours and hundreds of photos in a place called the bisti wilderness (do a google images search please). there was so much to see, you didn't know which way to point the camera. a few of my stitches worked well with a cloudless sky.

    A terrific picture

    Love the way all the elements come together.

    An imposing panorama, especially with the long, sweeping curve of cloud. The figure adds scale and interest.

    Love the technique. You certainly have captured a vista view. Juxtaposition of the clouds and sand make this a powerful image.

    A rather overwhelming impression of this almost otherworldly seascape (even without the interesting clouds). A bit of criticism about the loss of detail in the clouds, especially at the left.

    Wow, what a grand pano! Love the clouds!! In my fav.
