Is this worth editing. Removing the lamppost would take a fairly skilled and timely edit to look right. However I not sure if it would be worth it. Due to the shooting conditions which was fairly dark andalso thesubject movement.

I'd like to think that subject blur in some places maybe adds the atmosphere of the scene.

This is downsized quite a bit to fit on to this site's attachment restrictions.

Anyway let me know what you think and if I should do an edit.....

I think it does. I like the pano and the color. This is a quick edit to give an idea. Yolu will see some clone patterns since i didnt spend to much time. Having the larger image to work with you should be able to pull it off nicely. It also depends on what you want to keep and knowing whats there. If you could shoot the same area at night, from the other side of that post you could use that image to clone in whats actually there.

Depends what you're going to do with it.

It does look better without.

If you going to include in your city-panoramas exhibition (when is it by the way?) then I reckon you should take the trouble to clone it out - unless it breaks some kind of "realism" rule.

:lol:

You always make me smile peripatetic......

What exhibition is that then........ (maybe one of these days) haha

Actually I think I will post this in EBay Spain.... If I sell to 1/10th of thedie hard Barcafans in this shot... I'll be in easy street... hahahaha.. Got some real good ones of the full team in the open top bus too, parading around the town.

I quickly stitched this from the low quality Jpeg that I always take along with the Raw file. As I knew I had the lamp-post in there and to just to see how things turned out.

I think I'll spend the time to do the large file and edit out the post now....

Thanks windowmaker and Peripatetic..

Wow. That looks great. And I can't tell that the pole was there. But then, I'm not much of a critic. :blah:

i think you could easily sell a few of these to some die-hard fans.. therefore, i think it is definately worth the effort to clone out the pole..

it shows the sheer magnitude of the crowd very well... the white balance seems to be quite off on this one, or is it really how the scene looked.. i can't tell..

these urban panos are a cool idea... once the fall colors are gone here, i may have to try my hand at one or two... so thanks for the inspiration

Hards.

White balance being off. Well thats rather subjective ? I would have to have taken a reading there and then to know.

Cant remember what the scene looked like to me at the time. I just think the scene the camera saw wasn't the best it could be... Due to the fact I underexposed heavily to get the shots I needed. Anyway thats our job to decide on the end product and if it looks ok. And alsothats why I'm asking you allhere.

What would you do to the colour cast - feel freeto experiment and post back.

As its come out here on the screen, I probably will tweak it a bit and add a bit more contrast. However working with the raw files in the end will I'm sure give me a different result. And it will depend on how the prints look too how I finalise.

Thanks

I really like this picture...
I have tried the clone tool.. but i always miss the finishing touch
but in this complex crowded shot the clone has been done very well..


sure this poster could be sold to the fans...
