    You are doing some remarkable stuff here Bernie. What software do you use for stitching the images together?

    .......unable to view your image.......

    ......have a number of heads I have collected over the years, although heavy, one of my favourites would be the Manfrotto 303SPH

    Yes I had that one as well. Did not care for it. Way over complicated. Good for multi row however
    Not sure why the image is not viewable

    That one is really, really nicely done. Not so HDR that it distracts, to me.

    can anyone explain how a multiple shot panorama can be accomplished with rolling waves in it? Is it just lots of time in Photoshop to line up waves or clone out bothersome parts?

    .......I use ND filter and time exposure for smooth seas or water

    The best way to get the blurry water is using a ND filter. I often use a 3 stop filter for waterfalls and waves. Now, i will caution you that they do not work well with wind and leaves as the leaves will be blurry. I made this mistake a few times. Here is a waterfall shot that I took using a 3 stop ND filter.
