    Learning to use Panorama factory

    I remade the pano using the cylindrical projection mode, instead of perspective projection mode. Makes a big difference (eliminates the distortions)
    the cloud formations in right of picture are natural and not a result of a stitching problem (my initial thought)












    QUOTE=bestdog;163069]Thanks for feedback Prospero,
    I'll work on reducing the distortion on sides. Besides widening the scope of what is photographed, then cropping, any tips?
    With the first pano I realised after stitching it together that I should have taken the images as portrait and included more of the foreground: that striking mustard roof.[/QUOTE]

    Very nice panoramas, Brett. Except for the sky, I really like that second one. The sky is gray because the image covering that part of the panorama suffers from blown out highlights (the sky is overexposed). Your stitching software has darkened the image making the white sky gray. There is nothing you can do about this problem, except for shooting the images again and using exposure compensation to underexpose this part of the image. You can also try replacing the grey sky with the surrounding blue sky by using photoshop, but this will take a lot of time and it is difficult to get good results.

    Very nice, I like this result better than the first version. Sorry for not replying earlier. It's been very busy at university, so I had too little time. Anyway, it seems to me you have found the solution already. Widening the scope of what is photographed would not have worked. You are only adding even more distorted material to the sides. Shooting the images as a portrait can give very nice results, but I don't know if panorama factory supports that (the version I had been using about a year ago did not).

    Eden Harbour, South Coast, New South Wales

    Thanks for feedback Prospero, it's encouraging.

    I'm now starting to get the hang or the stitching software (Panorama Factory).
    This one is of Eden Harbour, a fishing village on South Coast of new South Wales. It is also a timber logging area and the smoke in background is from a fire to do with that. 4 images were taken, hand held and without my trusted circular polarising filter.

    It has been some time since I've posted here. I took my 80 year old mother to her home town in Mississippi and she guided me to Red Bluff.
    This was one of her favorite spots to go when she was a teenager!
