I absolutely love your panoramas, Gary. This is very beautiful, and your stitches are seamless. Wish I knew how this was done. #424594

Cathy Barrows 3/15/2004 12:21:36 PM

Breathtaking. Do you know where to get large panos printed? #425614

Carol Brill 3/15/2004 1:55:33 PM

So lovely with the cool, serene blue tones and reflections, Gary. Nicely contrasted with the darker diagonal lines of trees and rocks on either side! #425673

Robin L. Wehrman 3/15/2004 2:37:08 PM

Wow this is breathtaking!! Excellent reflections ... nice job Gary!! #425754

Gene Spears 3/15/2004 3:49:44 PM

wow - awesome image! #425831

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 3/15/2004 9:48:53 PM

Wow! guess I must have done something right with this one :-) Thank you all for your very kind comments! Cathy, I've been printing mine on an Epson 2200, with 13-inch roll paper (Epson Premium Luster is my favorite). I use the Epson high quality ink so they shouldn't deteriorate in sunlight. I've printed a few of them at 12" by as much as 44," and they look very nice matted and framed. #426086

Susana Matos level-deluxe 3/18/2004 12:16:57 AM

This is one of your photos I missed, you are on digital darkroom, thatīs how I found it! But iīll check your gallery soon...

wow, really....
Cheers from Portugal, Su #429583

Loren Roque level-deluxe 3/18/2004 12:39:29 AM

Outstanding Gary. Your "Magnetosphere Magnificance" is number one in my books, and this ranks a close 2nd!

I hope to have your gift for panoramas someday!


Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 3/18/2004 1:17:36 AM

Su; I'm glad you found my pano, its always a pleasure to hear from you :-) Thank you for the enthusiastic review!

Loren; Thank you! I think it's more a matter of lots of practice rather than a gift. The expansive scenery here just begs for a panorama viewpoint so I end up shootng LOTS of them. If you do something often enough you're bound to get it right eventually :-) #429608

Paul Knijff level-deluxe 3/18/2004 1:40:14 AM

real nice gary. congrats. could be a surgeon too with the stitching
was this done in PS? (which I do not have for the moment).
saludos #429614

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 3/18/2004 2:11:55 AM

Thank you, Paul :-) This was assembled in Panorama Factory. It's by far my favorite stitching software. #429621

Chad G. Zuber level-deluxe 3/20/2004 11:13:20 PM

Absolutely beautiful pano, Gary. I really like it. Your Epson gives you good prints, huh? How much does it cost (paper and ink) to print an 8 x 10 on your Epson? A 12 x 44?
Great work! #437840

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 3/21/2004 10:23:48 AM

Thanks, Chad :-) The Epson gives very good prints but the tiny ink cartridges don't last very long on the big panoramas. I haven't used the Epson long enough to get a handle on the average costs. Its probably somewhere between $8 & $10 for a 12x44 pano though. The high quality roll paper alone is approx. $1.30/ft. I don't know about the 8.5x11 as I generally print that size on my HP. #438804

Loren Roque level-deluxe 3/21/2004 1:25:53 PM


With regard to the "tiny epson cartridges", I believe that Pantone has a retrofit for certain Epson printers that utilizes Pantone ink formulations that are compatible with the Epson printer. The ink source is high capacity "tanks", and the colors would no doubt be in line with the color standards which Pantone is known for. I believe this setup is geared toward the printing industry, where a pre-press department could produce a "match print" which would be identical to output from a press. Our particular hobby would benefit from having the printer pull from bulk tanks of ink versus expensive little ink cartridges.

Food for thought!

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 3/21/2004 7:17:38 PM

Loren, Thanks for the info. I've been researching a bulk ink delivery systems for the Epson 2200 and have found two of them. I went to the Pantone web site and couldn't find any reference to bulk ink systems, although they do provide replacement cartridges for the Epson. The best system appears to be Lyson's "Cave Print" bulk delivery system. They have archival dye based inks that are supposed to be equivalent to Epson's ink. The only problem is that the systems I've found are all priced very nearly as much as the printer ($450 +/-). If I should start selling enough prints I could justify it, but I'm not quite there yet :-) #439566

Loren Roque level-deluxe 3/21/2004 9:28:17 PM

Hmmm......maybe that "Cave Print" system was the one. Somewhere there was a reference to Pantone, perhaps that the output from that Cave Print system accurately represented Pantone colors? Anyway it is nice to have alternatives to the little ink cartridges, although the initial start-up costs are $$$$. #439697

Most Beautiful. Right time of day, a few clouds for added effect and great looking water. Photo Stich does amazing things with the right pictures.

Great Photo!

Diane, thank you for taking the time to leave me such a nice comment! It is always greatly appreciated :-)

The larger versions are always my favorites also because there is so much more detail which gives it more presence.

Thanks again,

Max Spencer level-deluxe 6/10/2004 10:21:42 AM

This photo couldnt be any better I think. I wonder wot it looks like on a lovely sunset??

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 6/12/2004 1:42:10 AM

Why thanks, Max :-) Unfortunately it will have to be a sunrise, as this view is looking almost directly East. You can be sure that if I catch a good one from this location I'll most certainly enter it! #589694

Taken in January when the noon sun doesn't rise high enough to light up the valley. It sure does light up the fresh snow on the mountain tops though! 4 photos stitched.
