Stackpole Quay itself - related to Pembrokeshire pictures generally. This shot is focussed better on the closer things - impossible depth of field needed to deal with it, really - so its a bit blurrier than I'd have liked on things like the tea shop/ice cream parlour (top right) where we had Cowpots ice creams after visiting Barafundle bay gigapan.org/gigapans/51265/ . This shot was done from further along and higher up the same outcrop from which the bay to the north gigapan.org/gigapans/51254/ was gigapanned.

Lots of divers around - on the beach, in the boat, in the harbour.

Stitched with Microsoft ICE, Pentax Kx and FA 100 f3.5

    Ah, my mistake then. I felt moved to comment because as long-suffering visitors to my gigapan pages will know I have struggled with depth of field myself. BTW kudos for geocoding your gigapans - not every one does this which is a pity because they often look a lot better in Google Earth.

    It was shot at f8(!) - its a Pentax FA 100 f3.5 lens set to f8, but I got the hyperfocal distance wrong and this halved my depth of field for this shot: I was too concerned with making the quay itself sharp and I underestimated how far away it was. The f4 mentionned in many of my other gigapans is a Pentax A 200 f4 and its usually set to f8 or f10/f11, similarly the Pentax A 135 f2.8 is usually set to f11, again using hyperfocal techniques. Usually I'm getting this pretty right, but its always a concern.

    I notice you often use f/4. I generally use f/8 at least for the improved depth of field. It's not going to solve all your problems of course, but it should help.
