Hi Friends,

After some time away due to my profession at sea I will try to visit TN on a more regular base the coming weeks,unfortunately I havent been able to photograph much nature related pictures on board of my vessel,but I could not resist showing this expiriment,it is a panorama picture of the coast of Norway while we were underway from Forde to Kristiansund,the picture is build up out from 14 single shots (all handheld from my vessel)and merged in one using the merge function in CS3,the original was over 200 MB,so you can understand that I had to reduce the size quite a lot to fullfill TN requirements,hope you take the time to look and enjoy the LP version,

Hello Paul,
This is really interesting, impressive works has been done!
Looking at the large version (a must, the small says nothing much) is like sailing along the coast on a beautiful spring day...
Very well done indeed!

Hi Paul, this is a very beautiful piece of work. This has to be a new record for me. I don't think I've seen 14 shots end to end stitched together like this, and taken hand held yet, and from a ship...Awesome! Very excellent job!

Thanks, John

Hi Paul

If the view was any wider I am sure you would have included your own eye in the shot. Wow, now this seascape puts meaning back in to the word PANORAMA. The merging (or stitching) is perfectly done with no traces or evidence of any seams or mismatching at all. Fabulous work and an imposing pleasure on the eye.

Anyway, welcome back. Itís good to hear from you again. Take care and tanks for this pleasant surprise.

Well done

hi paul
this is really a beautiful landscape..
i wonder how could you get such stable shots by a handheld camera from a vessel!
great picture
feels as if i m there in the vessel!!

Great to see you back Paul.
Wonderful panoramic image wich gives us a beautiful view on the Norwegian coast.
Reminds me on the old days, the seventies when I was a sailor myself and did many trips along the Norwegian coast.
Excellent work and a real jpy to look at.

Best regards, Harry

Hi Paul!

This is the most fantastic panorama I've seen here on TN! What an obvious idea to make this from a ship, but still it haven't come to any body's mind yet!
Excellent finish to this fine idea. Plus I think it's probably the "longest shot" on TN! TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Paul,
Fabulous coastal view! I'm impressed for the Nature you have there!

Hi Paul

I don't think I've seen that many shots stiched together before. The result is impressive though. Very panoramic and the exposure is well controlled on each shot. I couldn't see any joins at all. Well done.


Hi Paul
Your experiment has very good result :)
I wonder what was the distance from one to another side of the picture.
Thanks for presenting

Hoi Paul,
Ik heb net een foto uit deze omgeving geplaats en kwam via de provincie optie bij deze zeer indrukwekkende foto terecht. Dacht ik dat ik tijdens mijn vakantie een grote panorama had gemaakt, zie ik dat jij twee keer zoveel foto's hebt gebruikt. Het resultaat is echt prachtig. Vooral de strakke lijnen en de vele vormen bergen.
