Default Altopiano d'Asiago

This is my first attempt to panoramas.
This landscape is made up of five shots merged together with Panorama Maker 3.0.



P.S. : didn't touch very much except sky light and contrast , which was too overexposed.

Well done Sergio! That is wonderful and something I want to learn to do very soon.

You made a success here.

Thanx soundengineer.

I have taken this shots from an Hotel terrace in the middle of Asiago.
The five shots embraces a 180 degree arc.

It's quite easy to make landscapes with Panorama Maker.

In its easiest mode all you have to do is to tell him the sequence of photos that will make up the landscape, and then it will do all the magic for you.

However, you can help it making a good job paying attention to the shots you take in the following way :
- Hold your cam tigthly, leaning your elbow if possible
- Keep the same inclination across the all shot you take
- Supposing you are taking shots left to right, pay attention to the right elements in one shot and include them in the left part of the next one : your panorama software will be very glad about it

Very nice advice! Thankyou!

I will begin taking photoes to try this out. Do I need to think about light exposure as I move from one side to another? Or would the changes in the movement appear natural in the panorama photoes?

A pretty good question !
My answer is : uh, I do not know exactly !
However, it seems believable to me that this kind of problem will be managed by the panorama software.
In my landscape I haven't cared about exposures and the final shot shows a seamless landscape.
Best thing for you maybe is to make a very fast test :
take two shots at home : the first with a window and the other with the wall near the window.
Exposures should be different.
Then try to feed your panorama software with these two shots and see what will happen.

Let us know !
