    I recently got 9 rolls of film back from the lab and have been busily scanning them. Here are some panos taken on my Fuji G617 and Velvia film from various locations I have visited in the last two months. I went in search of autumn colours around Easter to Stanthorpe and Armidale and I went to Melbourne for a conference for work at the end of May.

    I especially like "Mourning Morning".
    Must be fun to use this camera. Nice panorama images!

    Mourning Morning is a treat to look at because of its charming evocation of loss and the promise of renewal.
    Looks like DeGraves Street in the laneway shot, a scene I have viewed in another pano photographer's folio (Erwin Groen).
    All the pics are well exposed — something I don't see often in pano photography where e.g. Velvia 100 is often preferred and exposure is guessed.
    This Velvia looks a bit pinkish in base tone to me. Were you using a Skylight 1B filter?

    Thanks for the comments. I used Velvia 50 for most of these except 4 and 8 which I used Velvia100 and 3 and 7 I used Velvia 100F. I think the Velvia 50 is quite blue/purple and the Velvia100F makes blues look purple and exagerates yellows (in my limited experience). I will check out Erwin Groen's pic of Degraves street.

    You are doing very well both with composition and the management of exposure with three of the most difficult films to work with, the Velvias: shadows, highlights, colour...everything is there. I personally threw out a box of Velvia 100F last November as I couldn't stand for one minute longer the silly colour palette (the yellow-mustard channel is especially irksome) and the difficulty in scanning correctly.

    Yep, DeGraves Street (among other nooks) is the place to be, but it's a hellhole when there is a cold winter wind whistling along there. No better if you add rain and poor light! Will be there tomorrow for lunch with family and friends. Maybe I'll take my street-chic Olympus XA... :smile:

    Wonderful pano's. For some reason I quite like day turns into night. Very calm and almost desolate.

    But Gary, throwing out film is perhaps one of the strangest ways Ive heard of to support film manufacturers. :munch:

    Yeah I agree. The only reason why I have 100F is because I got given some expired stock when I bought the camera. The only reason why I used it on the morning I did was because it was pretty rubbish conditions and I didnt want to waste a roll of Velvia 50! Having said that Im happy with the results!
