This one's for Paul. Thanks for the tips on shooting panos with the 6490. I've almost gotten the bugs out of the process. (next time I'll remember to take my polarizer off - it creates too much difference in the sky hues:shock

I know this is not a finished product. I probably won't be able to colour-correct the whole sky, but this is my first reasonable stitching attempt. (by the way, this is all done by hand in PSE)

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

P.S. I would really appreciate suggestions as to how to improve this technique.

Hi Tom...I realize you're looking for help and criticism on this,but to my untrained eyes it looks very nice indeed

Hi Tom'

I second what Dan said. I think it is a very good panorama.

I don't know Tom, If you did a better job than that I'd be afraid you'd be too good to talk to an old dawg like me. I only hope my first serious stitching attempt is half as good as that one. I can't see the seams but maybe I'm not as good at finding them as a panaramist might be. Gold star and pat on the back from the Dawg.

Very nice work Tom.
I used the Panorama Factory's program for mine because I'm too lazy to do them myself.

The sky is always the main problem, I'm sure a little colour correction in Photoshop should cure it.

Looking forward to seeing some more later on.

Paul.

Tom.

I've come back for a second look and like it even more.
Will it be ok if I use it as a desktop for a couple of days?


Paul.

Paul, I would be honoured.

Tom

P.S. I've done a little more work on this, and I've been able to get rid of the more obvious "banding" but the sky hues are still out of whack... I blame the polarizer. (and myself:roll I'll re-post if I ever get it straigtened out.

The polarizer certainly will create huge differences in the sky depending on the location of the sun and the direction of your camera.

You may to just fudge a bit - do the panorama, then mask out the real sky and drop in a single sky photo. Easy enough in Photoshop or Photopaint, and probably a number of other image editing packages.

As Dave mentioned, you can cheat a bit and Photochop another sky in, hope you don't mind Tom, but here's a simple sky shot added to your pano.

Your original pano is sitting proudly as my desktop and my icons fit very well around it.

All the best, Paul.

Thanks, Paul. I like the effect. I've got a PS action that does quite a reasonable job in replacing skies. Maybe I'll give it a shot. I am certainly not a purist when it comes to adjusting photos, but my long-term goal is to get it right the first time.

Thanks again.
