Excellent, sorry but I'm often prioritising my time on computer for editing. A critique? This shot was a few years back when my blending was totally rudimentary, I'd just switched to fullframe and shot this at 2eV brackets and manually blended. It hurts my eyes slightly because I see where all the weak points are! I'll go back there some time and see how it goes. The main problem is the wide DR of the scene and the very rapidly changing light at that pre-dawn time. Makes doing a smooth stitched blended pano difficult. Shooting a 0.7 or 1eV 3 or 5 bracket pano with the longest (water) exp being 10-15 seconds or so takes too long and the light changes too much between pano frames.
