this is very nearly 180 degrees but doesnt look it on this small version.

it was shot wide angle so tons of distortion to deal with etc, ti was shot last monday evening, couldnt hang about for chance of sky changing colour, but as it happened it didnt got red anyway

Two great sunsets with boats on the forum in one day. Lovely stitching job Gary.

Cheers,
Ollie

BTW, with all the pano stitching going on in this forum at the moment, it would be nice to know what stitching software you use (I use Autopano or PTGui)

cheers ollie

what i use is.....................Photoshop !

bet that supprised u LOL

i have tired the autostich stuff and have never been happy with the results, remember these images get printed out 3 foot long, so have to stand up to close inspection.

am quite experiance with photoshop so do it all by hand, even photoshops phot merge doesnt work good enough for me

the pics have gotta be similar exposure or it wont work, only so much can be done with the levlels, ,i like the challange of joining them and none as beaten me yet, this one was shot with locked exposure,so only had edge distorion to deal with via transform/skew, then careful use of eraser tool clone tool etc to make good the joins, and i allways work big !! this shot was 300 meg at full size, photoshop tells u along the bottom left od screen.....image size is 36 inch by 12 at 320 dpi

I grew impatient with manual stitching after a while. Never could bet the warping bit right. I find the autostitching programs do a brilliant job unless I have a particularly badly aligned set of hand-held photos to stitch. And PTGui has a manual override that usually fixes any problems.

Cheers,
Ollie

Kudos to you Gary. Great pictures, great stitching resulting in an absolutely fabulous picture. Well done mate. Manual stitching is my preference too.
