Canon Powershot SX200 on Epic


This artificial Ski slope belongs to Ski-centrum "Jorg Moser", and is located in the recreational park "Rutbeek" near Enschede ( www.skicentrummoser.nl Will open in a new tab or window ). This was supposed to become a 360 degree panorama, but rainfall made me stop at 250 degrees (otherwise it would have been a 8600 megapixel photo).

Apart from the Ski school with its restaurant and the beaches of lake "Rutbeek", you can see the city of Enschede, the famous beer brewery of "Grolsch" and the soccer stadium "FC Twente".

I will go back at a later date with better weather to try again, because this clearly is the highest point in the area. Since the distance views were not quite sharp either, I will then try different focus settings as well.
Although the Focus was manually set to the indefinite, the safety MF function was turned on (which is supposed to fine tune the focus in a small range around the manually set focus point).
This function doesn't seem to improve the focus for the far away area's, but the cloudy weather might also cause this less then optimal focus result (any comments on that matter will be welcomed).
