Some more panoramas from Longwood Gardens. These are a series taken with a Canon 300mm f/4 lens, handheld, at either f/4 or f/5.6 for smoother backgrounds. I chose to shoot panoramas because I wanted smoother backgrounds and if I backed up I would have more background detail and I tend to print very large and this gives me ample file sizes. Plus I did not want to carry a lot of gear with me. I like the challenge of panoramas or image-stacking and the more you do, the better the outcome will be. The featured image is a 3 shot panorama.
