Mallett’s old saw mill

I took this spherical panorama of Mallett’s old saw mill on Mattakeunk Stream at the edge of Merrill Pond in Lee, Maine yesterday. I chose 24mm, ISO 100, f/22, and 9 exposures of 1/250 to 1 second to get some longer shutter speeds for flowing water. Unfortunately my 14-24mm f/2.8 lens doesn’t have any filter rings (it has a huge, bulbous front lens element), so I can’t use a neutral density filter on it for really long shutter speeds. The no parallax point of my 24-70mm f/2.8 is so far forward that I can really only use it at 70mm on my panning head which would have been too much of a zoom for a tight space like this. I suppose I should get a 28mm f/1.8 prime for situations like this where filters would be useful.
