me: wrong side of the mirror

My First Panorama

King's Men Panorama

The King's Men stone circle at Rollright. Three photos stitched together in Tatershop, with healing brush applied to smooth out the blending, and dodge tool on the vignetting in the corners caused by the polarizing filter + widest angle setting of my zoom lens. I'm not exactly sure what the difference is between the compression algorithms used by the LJ Scrapbook and Flickr, but I much prefer the way Flickr displays reduced-size versions of the uploaded images. For comparison, here is the same image (500 x 259 pixels) uploaded to the Scrapbook. The difference in image quality is visible. WTF, mate.
