photoblog image (North Wales Notebook)  Borth-y-Gest 1/5

(North Wales Notebook) Borth-y-Gest 1/5

We had a weeks holiday in Porthmadog, North Wales in early September and so for the next few weeks I will be featuring a variety of images and collages, and a mix of subjects, which I hope you find entertaining.

 

Next door to Porthmadog, just round the headland,  is the delightful village of Borth-y-Gest and we spent almost a whole day there because it is so quiet and yet has plenty of photo opportunities as you will see this week.

 

This is a panorama made up from five portrait format exposures in CS3, with a touch of Topaz to lift the colours as it was a bit dull at the time for good colour saturation.

Great work on the edit, Brian; not sign of any join and the colours look very natural. It does look very attractive, as you say.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. This is a delightful little village, very quiet, just how we like it.
You are a true master at this, Brian. The result is just wonderful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. This is only about the second or third time I've had a go at a panorama.
You did a fine job with this Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Michael.
Well done Brian. A great result showing the area off to it's best advantage
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, this is a lovely spot.
All the ingredients are good, nice image Brian. Well stitched, did you use a tripod? And well adjusted exposure to make all match.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John. Yes I did use a tripod, an rare event for me.

Nicely processed image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Great panorama, Brian, and a nice view of those rocks.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Sheila.
Are you sure you took this photo in the North Wales, this place really looks like to my Brittany. Beautiful picture. A+ VAL wink
Brian Walbey: Well this little spot is definitely Wales Val but I know, only from pictures sadly, that Brittany is beautiful also.
Ah! The posh bit of Porthmadog. Nicely pictured, Brian, I recognised it immediately.
Brian Walbey: And it is a lovely little spot Graeme.
