Panoramics are in my opinion a hard form of landscape photography but also very rewarding. They require a lot of faith, taking images not knowing what the result will be until you get home and on the computer and blending them. I guess it sort of goes back to like film days, where as I'm more used to a digital workflow of getting the image right in camera seeing the result roughly before I've even processed it. That's also one of the reasons I don't exposure blend also. However, panoramics work very well for high up mountain photography when you want to capture a sense of scale and space, managing to fit a lot in without dwarfing the huge mountains. There are challenges, like getting even exposure, spot on focus etc but it's easily worth it when it pays off. This image is from Lingmell and I took a large pano looking from left to right to include Scafell, Illgill Head, Wast Water and some of Wasdale with some lovely side lighting.
