White balance!

I tried a pano a few weeks ago and the images were totally unusable because they didn't match. I couldn't figure out for the life of me what was happeneing, but I did use auto white balance! Doh!

Great series of images up there from everyone, really inspires thread lurkers to go out and try some.

Some of the stitching programs including the new technology in Adobe Photoshop CS3 seem to do a pretty good job of adjusting for different exposures and white balances. I have had very good luck with Photoshop CS3's new technology.

However, I want to do more to get the images as perfect as possible before I stitch. That is why I bought the Manfrotto 303SPH head. That is also why I bought RealViz Stitcher Unlimited (I also want to tinker with spherical and QTVR as well).

I recently took some interest in spherical panoramas which was the main reason for the 303SPH head. I plan to have some real fun with that. Something like this...

I hope so too. BTW the information on that form of panorama I got from the book:

Assembling Panoramic Photos: A Designers Notebook
O'Reilly
0-596-00975-5
$19.95 (US)

This was a French book that was translated in to English. It is a very nice book and includes some very interesting forms of Panoramas. They use both software and manual stitching technques. Very cool.

robert,
i wish you had never brought this up. these are stunning.
http://www.sphericalpanoramas.com/
i could have gone for years more without this. i can see how someone could easily get hooked on this. the QTVR implications are endless. i'll have to do some more R&R and find a cheaper way of doing it as i don't have $600 for a head.

thanks for posting,
roy
