Ok, finally managed to have a go at creating a panorama shot - took these yesterday. Used Autostitch to do this as I couldn;t find the software that came with the FZ10.

Pic 1 Night shot of Canary Wharf. Just reduced to size and a wee crop.

I'd like your comments and suggestions on how to improve. I'll put the full size up on my smugmug later.

Cheers

I lke these, especially the night shot.

I've used autostitch too and found it to be a pretty good program. The interface isn't as fancy as some of my other stitching programs. Nevertheless, it stitches just as well as they do and it's really fast.

Ladyhawk & Gene

Thanks for the comments on the pano's. I had another play with them today to straighten the buildings and here is no1 - I didn't attempt no 2 as it wasn;t that good.

Regards autostich, LD I completely agree with you its so simply but blazingly fast and spot on its shocking ! Even better is that its free !

Cheers

I love the nightime one; looks like a postcard. I'd love to see the full size.

Here's the original - you can also check the full size although that'll be a wee bti difficult.

Very nice. Maybe at half stop more open it would have looked even better

Hi Francesco

Thanks for the suggestion. I've been thinking exactly the same so I'm planning to reshoot it and may be zoom in a wee bit as well.

Cheers

Somehow I tend to not liking artificially straightened buildings in panoramics.
I guess its because the perspective. It gets destroyed in my eyes, if you straighten it all to much.

I made up a little illustration of what I mean: http://www.freebytes.de/illu1.jpg and http://www.freebytes.de/illu2.jpg

The buildings have more impact if they are in their proper perspective... uh... I don't really know how to express what I feel about this.... Don't listen to me :?
