Panoramas, Ushguli, Svaneti, Georgia

Posting this entirely using battery power on laptop & cellphone as, after a night of fairly heavy snow, we lost electricity as expected.

Hmm, looks like I was a bit hasty in writing off the EOS's bundled panorama stitching software.  It doesn't give a great size or tonal range when you work with RAW files, but convert them to .tif - lowering the contrast and getting the component images as close as possible to each other in tone in the process - & suddenly you're at full original resolution.  Here are a couple of pairs of panoramas to compare for the new and old ways of doing things, old attempt on top, new underneath.  A vast improvement.
