    Thanks for the advise, I will try it out. I am quite new to gigapan's so just learning what works and what does not. I have wondered how people get both foreground and background in focus :) Thanks Chris

    Hi Chris, It is hard to criticize your pictures because they are quite good, but I see that you are shooting with a very wide aperture which greatly reduces the range of items that are in acceptable focus. You can allmost get away with this when there is no foreground in the picture, but if there are items in the foreground they will be very soft. I have found that the sweet spot for most lenses is F11 which will give you the maximum depth of field. Whether I am shooting in the bright sun or at night I always shoot at F11 and I adjust the ISO and/or the shutter speed for the correct exposure. I have good results with ISO up to 800. You might consider shooting your next gigapan at F11. I am sure you will like the results. best regards, digitalbob

    Thanks Robert, I was using a Canon 24-70 f2.8 Mk I. Yes it was great light, I was quit lucky as this was only chance to take photos while I was in Sydney.

    Hi Chris, This is a magnificent gigapan!! The lighting is so beautiful. This is the kind of shot that you wait months or years for the conditions to be just right. Well Done! What lens were you using? digitalbob
