Default Isole Tremi, a Panorama View.

Here is a panorama made up of three shots showing Isole Tremiti.
It has been taken from San Nicola Island.
The Island in front of it is San Domino while the one on the right is named "Cretaccio" ( made up of clay (creta)).

Excellent panorama, vibrant colours and seemless stitching!
Well done!

Thanx.
I use Panorama Maker 3.0 .

Hovewer, I had to apply several tricks.

Though Panorama Maker was set in such a way to correct exposition it didn't do it that well.
There were noticeable differences in the joining parts of the three shots.
So I have digitally replaced the sky applying the technique I have described in my post "Houses Facing the Canal" :
http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...ic.php?t=13665

Another trick was the following :
When I took the three shots I haven't been very much horizontal cause I wanted to include as much as possible of the panorama below.
When u attach these shots taken in this way the horizon is not straight. An arc appears in an unavoidable way.
In my cases the left part of the sea was ok while the right one was leaning down.
So, I applied two tricks:
The first was to select the right part of the shot and apply a vertical skew on the right part.
U have to take care of two things when u do this :
- u have to set the feather value of the selection to 0, otherwise u will notice a glow;
- u don't have to put the left part in the sea horizon, otherwise u will notice a V shape.

The second one was to extend the selection used to replace the sky to the lowest part of the curved horizon.
This way the horizon has been artificially restored to the straight line.
Becare of setting a 1-2 pixel feather value for the selection otherwise u will get an innatural clean cut between the sea and the sky.
