Swansea Bay - Aberavon Sea Front

I recently downloaded Google Camera as an app for my phone, this app is linking in with Google Views and is placing images onto Google maps. It also has the capability for panoramic photographs. I took several panoramic shots on a recent visit to Aberavon sea front overlooking Swansea bay.
I am looking at producing two work from these photos, more abstract than recent works.
Lets just hope these turn out as I have pictured them in my head!!
