Default Panorama -- First Panorama - Island Rookery July 2007

From the archives, as is - FWIW, My first attempt at a panorama, stitched manually by overlapping frames in an earlier version of PSE - at least four frames if I remember correctly. A late afternoon image of a Snowy Egrets rookery in a small local Southern California neighborhood park. I could (and would) do better today.

We all gave the same or similar experiences
Your first foray into panoramic stitching looks pretty good.

Your first attempt certainly looks better than my first attempt. It took me a while to figure all the things to put on manual control to get the photos so they would not look different when stitching.

Thanks, Bill. If you look closely, there are still some faint overlaps in the sky - today I would know how to eliminate those.

Very nice! I think the same thing about my first panorama - I spent a week on it pushing and prodding things to line up. I've thought about trying to find the files (think they were scans of prints) and seeing if one of the software programs would do better. In the end doing it manually was rewarding, but such an effort!
