stunning as always Phil

What do you use for the panorama head? I'm looking for a portable solution.

This looks like what I want to do:

I have a portable solution for sale - it's a Nodal Ninja Mark III which is ideal for your camera.

However on this I shot it handheld.

Scanning the scene for the optimum exposure I then dialled it in on full manual mode, fixed the focus (easy with a manual focuslens) and WB, and shot away.

That has to be the most pristine white mosque I have seen. Lots of sharp textures and lines. I like how the eye is drawn to different things in color and B&W.

This is one of those sets of pictures where it's tough to choose between the colour or B&W version - both versions are stunning to look at!

Thanks guys - I prefer the feel of the b&w myself, and think the b&w pronounces the tones better

Another great set, not only the subject matter also the quality. I like how you captured the people in the centre of the pillars.

Cheers

Thanks 4xxxx

The 15 shot panorama is just being printing and framed - the detail at 30" x 22" is quite impressive! Damn these old 12Mp cameras and manual focus optics!
