Default Cape Leeuwin panorama


stitched in Autostich
it did a good job making the sky smooth, but couldnt fix the wobbly horizon due to me not keeping the camera level and the fisheye bending the horizon up and down

Looks great John...the pano stiching resulted in a good composition with plenty of width and depth!

I love it, John.
One of the new features in CS5 is called puppet warp. It works great for correcting the horizons in shot like this but, I think it turned out pretty nice like it is.

I think it's quite unique. CS4 can stitch panos taken with a fisheye, but doesn't do it very well - I was disappointed the time I tried it. Yours is very nice, you should be happy with it.

I agree with the previous comments, John. I like the pano a lot, and if you hadn't mentioned it, I doubt if I would have noticed the horizon.

Beautiful scene, and so well-photographed. I too would not have noticed the horizon "wobbles" if you hadn't mentioned them. Great richness of colors!

i like Autostitch, mainly because its free, but it can do a great job too
i was surprised the sky came out so good as the fisheye seems to really darken the edges of the sky in each photo
Gimp has a warp editor where i could tweak it, but it would be trial and error
i could of defished them all too before stitching i guess
and NMrecording it is a place i would love to live, it is quiet and laid back, although winters can be hard with the weather coming up from the Southern ocean
this was a nice calm day, in winter i am guessing the water coming off the ocean would of been wetting me, it gets very rough
thanks everyone for your comments
you are encouraging me to shoot more fisheye photos lol

John that is one lovely panorama! Beautiful color and subject.

I am used to a little horizon bending and hardly noticed yours. Nice stitching, how many shots were stitched to make this photo?
