3. Love the shots.

Panos are not my forte, and I'm getting ready for my Aurora-shooting trip, so I'll be sitting this one out. Good luck to everyone.

8. It's hard to choose, isn't it?

I had several choices to make also. All three are nice...the last one - it looks like one of those torrential summer thunderstorms is coming!

15. Love that pic!

So many good spots to swim in VT!

I was a fan of the Bolton potholes... Lots of fun.

9. Solly, have you posted an invitation in GD or the Lounge?

I was wondering. Of course maybe any of us could maybe do that, am I correct, or does protocol mean the person in charge do that?

Anyways, all entries are very nice!

10. Okay, I managed to get something posted...

I would have liked to share something other than my entry but now that I have an account at photobucket I suppose I should keep entering in the future.

I have to go to the city to get some business done... it's 170 miles one way so I may not be back until tomorrow evening... and now I have to get horizontal so I can get on the road by 7:30am.

If adjustments need to be made for adding my submission to the contest, please let me know, I'll check in when I get home... Thanks!

21. Awesome, thank you!

Just got in. Not only was it hot and a long drive, the whole day I was in such dense smoke that I couldn't see what's in my picture on the way coming or going... ick.

Have a great time with the contest, I can't wait to see all the entries!

Thanks again,

2na

22. I've NEVER before done panoramas

I'm sure I'm not alone. I've been clicking them to the mild annoyance of those around me for days, and have been learning.
Maybe, if you have the time, tell folks again that it's not that hard, and fun, once you start playing with it. I took many panoramas by now, and find it quite interesting.
I'm still lost in the Everglades, or I would try to do it.

23. I hope you're having fun!

I really suck at panoramas.

But, my attempts have been fun and it's not that hard...of a concept.

I'm getting better.

I'll get something in the next couple of days, I think.

Have always loved playing with panos and stitching .. That one actually has a double bow in it but second(higher) one is hard to make out

32. Well I think it was a good topic and all were excellent entries

I think there weren't more entries because it's just not some people's forte...Kinda like the night photography contest a few months ago... I didn't enter that because I don't have a tripod and had nothing to submit...Plus, you know, shrinking down a photo to DU size, sometimes you lose a lot of the detail, the subtleties...with panorama shots it's harder to see details...plus it can be a composition challenge if you are not used to it.
