Untitled just because...

Untitled just because...
...I wasn't in the mood. My Canon G12 got broken and it will cost 140 euros to get it repaired. Meanwhile I had to use other cameras of mine. Here I played with Olympus Tough camera's panorama feature, which sucks, but can produce interesting pictures when used creatively. On this shot I also tested selective Gauss blur docs.gimp.org/en/plug-in-sel-gauss.html

.t.a.o.n., Annemarie, forever is a long time, Georgie F Photography and 10 other people have particularly liked this photo

Lovely image Sami, this puts me in the mood to just sit and enjoy the scenery! :) Cameras in need of repair put me in a cranky mood.!

Maybe crankiness has something to do with the latitude =P =D

The description certainly evokes the cranky mood :-) Nice that you still produced a soothing

I actually had quite much fun with the other old cameras of mine =) I discovered new features especially on that Olympus Tough.

Another good one ... I think I like the other one better, though. The added height seems to make it work better for me.

Monet it is =) Der Wandersmann mentioned that as well on the other version I have on my albums. I especially tried different techniques to blur the image because Monet got cataract in his old age.

Interesting pano.

Sami Serola has replied to Geoff. McElwaine
Thank you Geoff =) I suppose people usually think of using widen angle focal length on panorama images, but I found telescopic focal length more interesting in this case.

Sorry to hear about your camera. At least it can be repaired.

Sami Serola has replied to Esther
I would have bought a new one if only there would be anything as good and cheap as G12 on market. But now I'm actually happy because I can also support a local camera repairs shop and be a little more ecological =)
