Hello All,

Visited the Museum of Natural History to see their Oragami Christmas Tree.

It was fantastic. All ornaments were hand folded paper creations.

A truly creative and beautiful display well worth the visit:

I am amazed at how you captured this. I can't wait to get my R1 and try some of this type of a wide (tall) angle. Wow - the artistry in the ornaments is fabulous. Must have been something to see in person. Thanks Nicholas.

God Bless - Greg

Hi Greg and All,

Glad you like the Beautiful Christmas tree which helps to make my pic look good.

I had trouble uploding the image and had to write my intro a few times which caused me to leave out an important description:

This is actually a six image stitched panorama, hand held - no tripods alowed. I used Autostich and touched up a few overlaps in a few places. I originally had 'Panorama' in the title but forgot it when re-typing my intro.

Hi, Nicholas:

Man, just thinking about how many hours it must have taken to create each ornament boggles the mind. Just gorgeous.

Six frames ... wow. How tall was the tree?

Do you mind telling us approximately how long the panorama PP took, and how Autostitch compares to PS's panoramic stitching functions in your real-world experience? I am very interested in acquring this type of software. Thanks in advance. Ria

Nick-

That is very impressive panorama photo. Very well done, as were the individual photos of the individual animals. That for treating us all to a visual work of art.

Hello All,

Thank you for your very kind comments. The beautiful tree does help alot.

I have never obtained a good pano from Photoshop. Period. My opinion.

I use Autostich. It is freeware. I make a test pano on jpegs resized to 1200 pixels wide (landscape orientation). If I like it I do it all over again with JPEG's sized at 1800 pixels wide.

The program is dead slow using full size R-1 images. I use them for panos when I want to print.

Autostitch only asks that you give them credit for your pano. Google them.

It uses only Jpegs, I use Max quality. Save final pano as tiff. Only PP is on the final pano.

It is alot of fun.

Nicholas
