    The first three pictures here I never meant to be panorama's. They are of the dairy at my grand fathers farm a place I had spent all my spare time at while growing up.

    At the time I took the shots some 2.5 years ago I hadn't really got into photography, I was simply documenting the place (as it was being sold), rather than trying to take 'good' shots. The shots were taken on a digital p&s.

    A couple of months ago I was looking through the pics and I noticed some overlapped each other and might be able to become panorama's. I was ecstatic when I was able to peice some of them together to bring together the entire scene.

    Now knowing a lot more about photography than what I did then, I returned to the farm at Christmas time to try and improve on what I already had by accident. When I arrived I found the old tank stands and some of the yards ripped down. I was devastated as these added so much character to the scene.

    I was so devastated that I didn't have a chance to take more shots, that I only took three pictures and left. Those three pictures are picture #4 here.

    I intend on getting one of these pictures done quite large as a present to my grand father. I would love your help on what pic you think is best and any idea's on any post processing that may improve the picture quailty.

    Cheers,
    Rhu

    I think I'd go with #1. I like #4, but it won't be the same look that your grandfather remembers. :)

    I like #2. I actually think #2 and #3 would look good framed and matted together. My grandmother has something like that of her farm.

    I really like number 3. Its like this place is where you grew up and the road has led you to the unknown.
