Dude, awesome panorama, looks really sweet as my skydome in Compiz. But a quick question, do you have an original with a slightly higher resolution? Truly fantastic if you did!

This is what I'm talking about right here:

It's a feature under Compiz-Fusion called "Skydome", you are one of the FEW, VERY FEW, artists I've seen that has made such a wonderful 360 degree panorama. Problem with the Skydome is, that it prefers a 2:1 aspect ratio, other wise you get the vertical stretching you see there. Granted, I can probably tweak the image a little bit through GIMP and get a result that is slightly cleaner than the image as seen in the screenshots I took. However, if you have the original photos with a higher vertical resolution that would be a better solution, albeit more resource intensive. If that's not quite clear enough you can reach me through gmail at m0r7u71715@gmail.com.
And not to tell you what to do with your art, but you seem pretty adept at such scenes, I'd recommend adding "compiz" and "skydome" to your tags, because despite the vertical tearing due to the aspect ration, it is QUITE a scene at 1280x1024, and there are many other people that would LOVE to know where to get such awesome spectacles for their skydome backgrounds. Just a thought.
Thank you greatly,
Booney

I've adjusted another panorama which you might like as this pano has a long ratio. This pano was very close to 2 : 1 ratio so I've adjusted it for the correct ratio [link]

   Wow, I've gotta say, you do some fantastic work, much impressed with your website.
   As for as the SkyDome image, it looks absolutely terrific, so much so I doubt that there are many in the GNU/Linux community that could boast that quality of a panoramic skydome. Thank you greatly for the image.
   If/when I get around to posting on the Ubuntu forums would it be okay for me to name drop and direct folks over to your Deviant site and/or main web-site?
   Thanks again for that awesome pano, I'll be watching your sites for new additions.

P.S. - The full scale version of that screen shot is here but it'll take a minute to download from my PC to you (2.3MB).

Snowdonia is a favourite haunt of ours, and I'm happy to say we are re-visiting it again in June after about a 10 year break. This is a really lovely pano!

Oh gosh, this is awesome. When I visited Wales in 2000 - I had really wanted to go to Snowdonia. Alas, we were there right in the middle of the worst flooding in 700 years, and many of the routes that we would have had to take were either blocked, or too slow to attempt given our limited time frame.

This almost feels like I'm just standing right there. :D

I must've not been paying attention when I was in Wales, I never knew that there were such high mountains there... :shrug:

Very dramatic landscape! I have to admit that when I see places like this, its makes me feel like the place where I live is boring!

I like your choice for the focal point, whether intended or not. The great light in the sky, & the square object beneath it, are indicative of how one needs light, & a vast amount of space & a variety to look at in order to feel significant.

Does that make sense? Because in a view like that, you would tend to feel small next to such vastness, & alone. Maybe alone is the wrong word. I'll stop now. Lol!

insignificant is a good description, and to be honest I just love being out there even if it was -3c and 40 mph winds :) my car is in the panorama and it is hardly visible lol

What a view, great job! :thumbsup:
The landscape reminds me of the Austrian Alps. A nice place to photograph. It's hard to get to the right places at the right moments though (to get some decent light). My best shots from there were taken when the sky was very similar to what you can see here.

blue sky would of been nice but it would also be pretty boring lol

Indeed... but some cirrus clouds would be a great addition, at least if the sun was low enough.
I prefer clouds like the ones in your panorama to clear sky... especially around midday. Harsh lighting from above is the worst kind one can ever get :)
