    Hi everyone, after a long time of not really taking any photos to post up here I decided it was time I started up again. As with previous games, I really enjoy taking pictures of some of my favourite cars, and although I don't consider myself to be as brilliant(unlike the majority of skilled photographers on this forum) I have some great fun taking the pictures!

    So, I finally ventured into some proper editing techniques, I still have long way to go, but it's a start none the less! Looking through all the edited galleries on here though...tough competition:bowdown:

    I agree with that. The LFA pics are quite good and the last is excellent with a good composition / angle and a nice light.

    Which software are you using for merging pics ?

    Thanks!:)

    I'm using GIMP currently, I just need to work more on getting the transitions between the images as close to perfect as I can, I'm currently working on a panoramic shot, got to make sure this one, doesn't have white lines through it. :tup:

    One or two tips when you want to make panorama withe merged pics :

    - It's better (less distortion) if you are far away from the scene and you use the Zoom. With a f above 100 mm the fusion is easier.

    - You have to use the right stick of the joypad to make rotation and not the left one.

    - Use the EV block to have a constant exposition on all your pics.

    - Don't use the filters they make some vignetting which is disturbing for the merge

    - have a large covering area between two pics : a pic should have 50% in common with the previous one.

    All these "rules" could be breack but if you follow them at the start it will be easier.

    For merging I use a sotware called Zoner PhotoStudio, very simple of use. But there are a lot of others soft to do it easily.
