OK I have finally been out and completed this exercise today and it has proved very interesting.
This first shot has been done using the panoramic facility on my new camera. Now this is the first time I have used this function and it is very cold today.
I am not sure if I can change the dimensions on the panoramic setting but this is disappointing to say the least. The hills have been chopped away along with the top of the church tower. However as I say this is the first time I have used this facility and I will not be too hard until I have experimented further. For the purpose of the project it did its job.
The second part of the exercise for me was to take three separate photographs and then stitch them together.
