Thanks for the Constructive comments guys.
Regarding aperture, in hindsight, it was a bit out, i
shot at F8, unecessary really, i'm still getting used
to the differences between the DOF of the fisheye
compared to a regular rectilinear lens.
I too thought the pics were a bit soft, but had
struggled to keep the sharpness/detail while keeping a
web friendly filesize.
I have just re-done both panos, managed to get them
much sharper, and at less than half the previous size.
I was trying to control file size by keeping the
source equirectangular image small, instead of
reducing it for quicktime. It's all a learning curve,
and as long as they/I get better, it's all good.
These are the revised versions.
1.2mb, and 1mb respectively.
Much lower and the sky starts to get very banded.
