I have to confess to just now using the panorama feature on my camera for the first time this week. Till now, I'd take a distant shot and then crop it to catch what I wanted. These two buddleia at dawn shots were done that way.
Working back on the land this week, challenged me to try panorama and see. What I've discovered is that both techniques work well and are very pretty. The main difference is with the panorama setting on the camera you get something that is more circular.
Both are pretty. What do you think?
