    2012 was onderful as always! I do not see any sign of a 2013 call for entries – Will there be an edition this year?


  2. Niall O'Reilly Says:

    Greetings Guys,

    I have my Pano book and am sooo proud to have been published alongside such talented photographers with such stunning images.

    But – and it’s a small one. I think that the book would be greatly enhanced by an index/reference to find photographers and what page their images have been printed on. I know that the index is there, but that only lists alphabetically (by Second Name). If I’m trying to find a photographer by first name I have to read through all the names in the index.

    Would it be possible to list photographers as:

    Ireland
    Niall O’Reilly 100, 152

    France
    Frank Bailleul 101, 150

    and so on.

    With a page listing First names alphabetically too. I’m aware that the pages are for images and that this will take up more paper, please let me know what your thoughts on this are.

    Kind regards,

    Niall

    Regards,

  5. Marc Chauviere Says:

    I like #2 from Ed Cooley. There is probably some HDR in the process but not so strong and panorama looks like a painting. Bravo.
    I like more #3 from MichaĂ«l LĂŒthi, simple composition but color harmony, relaxing picture that I think before sleeping ;-)
    Bravo to all winners and Thanks to all participating to this panorama book.


  6. Recep Says:

  10. Edward Fury Says:

    Great to have made to short list. Where can we get to book from when it comes out? Or do shortlisted entrys receive one anyway?

    Thanks, Edward Fury


  11. Mohammad Reza Says:
