Default Panorama From Sass Pordoi : Val di Fassa

Here's a panorama ( made up of 5 shots ) taken from Sass Pordoi (2950m).
The valley you can see in the middle ( with small towns ) is Val Di Fassa.

I include the small version too in order to have an overall idea :





P.S. :
Before using Panorama Maker 3.0 :
- I have redimensioned all images by 50% in size (75% in area !) ( otherwise calculations would have been almost ethernal ).
- I have corrected the dominant color in every one of them (by clicking on the snow ) so as to minimize the cromatic difference among these 5 shots ( which cover an angle of almost 150),

After using Panorama Maker 3.0 :
- Though I have tryed to be as much horizontal as possible it hasn't been so hence the panorama has turned out to be curved.
- In order to correct it I have applied the Distort\Shear filter creating a curve that compensated it (almost ).
- automatic levels
- automatic contrast
- saturation control
- burn tool brush and sponge tool (saturation) brush in several places.

You did a superb job, Sergio. Crisp as the air must have been, and the panoramic view brings us closer
to what you were seeing than a single photo ever could have done. (I searched for seams, but you must
have hid them very, very well.)

Thanx Barbara.
As far as the apparent lack of seams are concerned :
It was useful to ...
1) Fix color balance of every shot prior to merging them
2) Take care of setting the "adjust exposition" in Panorama Maker ( best thing would have been to lock exposition at shooting time : I have this feature in my Nikon mut I still have to practice it ).
... but it was not enough ...
I mean , no seams were visible in the image but you could notice different brightness in the sky parts along the vertical merging lines.

I have then done the following :
on every vertical part corrisponding to the join I used a big, soft brush with the clone stamp and cloned pieces of clouds in the next area taking care of respecting their slope.
In some cases I did the job in both directions.

And that is really all , folks !

That's ALL? You're being way too humble.
