Default Norwegian shores - coastline near where I live - II

Every time I'm in here in this forum, I kind of 'blush' when I see my last entry her - Norwegian shores - coastline near where I live - from April 26th this year - where I posted this horrible overcooked HDR and Panorama-stich.

Having been at the same shooting site a week ago, I thought I'll have to rectify my 'going-overboard'-panorama with a new one, a bit closer to the truth....

Well, here it is - 2 of them actually:


This is a 2-exposure-stitch - well, actually it has 6 exposures involved, since it is a HDR as well as a panorama.

For those who are interested, this HDR has been rendered in Photomatix Pro, while the 3-stitch below was done in Dynamic-Photo HDR.



And here we have a 3-exposure stitch (involving no less than 9 exposures alltoghether, beeing a HDR).


For those with smaller monitor resolution:








The stitching-software I used was: ArcSoft Panorama Maker 4 (version 4.2.59).

i tried replying to this multiple times yesterday. actually many posts, but i could not submit anything yesterday for some reason. but now that its working.

i really love this shot walter. its a very nice composition that suits the pano aspect-ratio quite well. i really like the dynamic-photo hdr. it looks more natural and has less artifacting, and i think the exposure is much better.

did you stitch and then merge to hdr. or did you merge hdr and then stitch. when i did my lil hdr-pano, i had more luck doing the hdr with exact same parameters and then stitching later.

Walter - great stuff again - as usual. I prefer the first version myself for composition but both are great.

Thank you Hards80 - appreciate the kind words!
Dynamic's rendering is more powerful, but gives more noise in det final stitch (watersurface).
First the HDR and then the stitch - I don't think it will work the other way round, since the stitching-software takes away the seams.

JohnG - Thank you for your nice comments!
I realize now that in the second stitch, the one with the 3 exposures, my tripod was not leveled right, giving the whole scene a 'banana-bend'...
