lol I was thinking about starting a panorama thread but I never saw this one....hmmm wonder why no one shared any panoramas

ok so I will post one and see if anyone wants to post some then maybe I will post some more, I am working on two more right now...and maybe we can tell one another what we use to do them or how, I just started using a new program to do mine and they turn out great

Here's a night pano of Phoenix, taken from a POV north/northeast of downtown. The downtown skyline is visible far right.

Click for larger version (6000px wide). :)

What kind of software and hardware are you guys using for your panos?

I use a free program called autostitch (google it and it will come up). My pano above is 66 images that autostitch put together for me after i gave it the images to use. It took close to 20 minutes for it to do it but the results were pretty good IMO. All I did was crop it and a little cloning (very poorly done). All my other editing was done after i turned it into a globe.

Software I use: Well first I am on a mac and I'm using Photoshop CS2's photomerge feature... and if that does not work well I use Calico 1.3 this little program is awesome does everything I want and so simple and easy to use. It really blends the sky perfectly cause on some shots especially sunsets you may get different shading on the sky.

This one took me so long to do I really cant say how many hours I spent on this one, A hard one to do because its very busy with all the people. I had a lot of color correcting and cloning to do on this panorama.

I merge and blend manually in PS CS2/3 (my night shot, which is 8 or 9 images, was done in CS3).

The key though is in setup (camera settings, etc) and with knowing how you'll stitch them together in mind at the time of shooting. Exposure lock, overlap, etc is essential for proper blending.

Autostich is supposed to be quite good if you want a more automated approach.

Here's a non-traditional pano (two shots) that worked out really well. I laid it out as a horizontal poster and sent it to to the pilot, Sandy Balkan, who said he was going to hang it in the squadron @ Beale AFB. :-)

Here is another Airventure (Oshkosh) pano, this one 180 degrees, taken from the exit doorway of a Lockheed Constellation.

Both of these panos were handheld, which presented challenges in stitching due to near objects and parallax.

Here is the one and only pano I have created. I actually have this printed in 12X60 format and I love it. Especially for my first attempt.
WARNING VERY LARGE FILE!!!!!!

I will hopefully have something to post in a little bit, just got the newest addition to my camera family, kodak v570 (btw, not listed on dpc's camera's to add to profile *sad face*)... & it's supposed to do the panoramas in the camera, so i'll have to try it out!

Had to split this one up into 2 parts:

475674.jpg

Should say that all of these were shot hand-held. I don't do the actual panoramas, I give them to my partner Joe and he does it all, I believe he uses Autostitch.

Here are a few of mine

All of these were stitched using hugin, which is a front end to panotools. It is free software and runs on linux, macosx, and something called "windows?"

It sure beats trying to stitch photos manually. In fact two of the panos below were shot without using a tripod.

Nice airplane shots, here is one I did of a KC97 at Barksdale AFB

I ended up with the horizon straight at the cost of a slight curve in the wing

Here are a few more traditional panos:

Big Thompson Canyon, CO. This one is not perfectly stitched; too much lens distortion and parallax.

Alcatraz. You can see birds sitting on structures in the full-resolution image.

Bangkok, Thailand from a hotel window. Only a small area was not covered in dew, and I set the camera on edge on the sill and shot seven vertical frames.

Waimea Valley, Kauai, HI
