Panoramics--Let's get W-I-D-E

--------

{Photography.80.1}: Rich Mason {richpix} Fri, 25 Feb 2005 22:05:40 CST (HTML)

I'm starting this topic because panoramics require a little more width when displayed, and folks can come to this topic expecting the need to resize their window.

Here's my first contribution:

The view from Astoria, Oregon, across the Columbia River to Washington State--as seen from a window of the place I'm staying. This is only my second attempt at a stitched panorama, and I still have much to learn. To wit: It's very important to have the tripod head perfectly level when putting 19 pictures together. I ended up doing a bit of cropping and rotating to level the horizon--enough that the 150 MB file went down to 130 MB (reduced to less than 60 Kb here)--and I thought I had it fairly level when I started tripping the shutter.

It's important to use the same shutter and aperture settings for all the pictures to be used in stitching. Fortunately I knew and remembered this. Unfortunately, I didn't remember to take the camera off auto white balance the first time and had to repeat the set, thereby missing the perfect light which inspired me in the first place.
