Looking forward to do this again with more experience and better weather. From NYC. C&C welcome.





I need to learn how to make it not look curved:


this one is curved to, and there is a lot of glare from the office:

Assuming that you're using the PS; how about trying the 'Perspective' option instead of the 'Reposition' before starting the stitching process?? ...and then you crop the projecting parts of the output. Btw, Ialso like cloudy gloomydays, which is good for jazz; )

Thanks for the comments. I will try out the perspective merging to see if I can get a better result. I was using the auto method in PS. Your right, cloudy skies can be good too.



I did take another shot at it the other day. This one came out a little better. But if you are familar with the spot, you'd notice that the right side of the photo is not at exactly the correct perspective.





This one was taken from a corner office on my floor. As we get into winter, the sunsets will be earlier and I hope to get some nice shots.



The curving is really obvious here. Whats odd is that the middle of the photo curves in the opposite direction of the office.

My pleasure : ) I'd suggest you use the 'Interactive mode' allowing you to rearrange the single shots and then in case the 'curving'occursyou may try trythe 'perspective' button there or dump the picturesthat do not add to the overall composition.

Yes, indeed! I guess, you might have put fewer single shots to go in this stitchwork, which does not upset the perspective much....

I like the second two better because they seem less chopped off. Kepp at it. It is great fun.
