Ullswater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District, being 14.5 kilometres long and 1,200 m wide with a depth of about 60 metres.
This shore line inspired one of English Romantic poet, William Wordsworth to write one of his most famous poems \\\"I wandered lonely as a cloud\\\" after viewing the banks of the lake covered in daffodils. This image was taken a month before the daffodils bloom.


Impressive landscape! Absolutely worth watching.

A pity, that the water was not calm enough for easy stitching. And it seems possible to me, that you waited a bit too long between shooting the pics, for light changes are a bit too obvoius.

Great landscape and even great light conditions! I like your motifs very much but often the technical aspects for me are improveable. At this one only the surface of the water shows some problems. In my opinion you can't do really much without changing the equipment. If possible you should try to use "panoramastudio" as stitcher (trial version, full version with costs). I am sure you won't see much differences at the surface anymore.

Motif, colors and light are very nice. Greetings Fried

Arne, you are correct, I did take too long between taking each image. I was waiting for other visitors to move because I didn't want people in the pano.
Jorg - I have always used PTGUI software which produces reasonable results. But on occasions the blending and stitching for rough water, skies etc. do not produce results I like. Therefore I have tested your recommended software "panoramastudio". The results are much better as well as being easier to use, so I will now purchase this software.
Thanks for the advice. Paul.

I see it also as Friedemann and I liked your poetic description.
Paul, if you've been waiting too long between shots and the light has changed, then also a different Stitcher brings nothing new.
It is also not easy to stitch water, if you do the shots in quick succession.
I have created many panoramas with water, e. g. # 11200, 8239, 5646, 3570 ... and I gained experience in.

There is some problem of stitching, but the scenery is spectacular and the citation of Wordsworth very beautiful.

I like the scenery, too, and only at the second glance did I detect the stitching problems. KR Wilfried

Your motives are well chosen. Especially the light is exciting. Therefore it is worthwhile to solve the technical problems.

This time I've tested "Panoramastudio" for the stitch. The blend in the water is better than the previous image. Paul.

I see progress and improvement after pressing the F5 button. Keep it up.
