    Panoramas

    I thought it would be fun (interesting) to show a panorama I created with my GF-1 and PanaLeica 45/2.8. The I figured it would be even better to start a panorama thread.

    This is a panorama of 4 photographs taken from the top of King's Stairs in Rotherhithe looking towards Tower Bridge and the 'square mile'.



    You can also easily create 'zoomable' pictures with the technology from Zoom.it.

    Very nice panorama of the Thames, Louis! Do you use PS to stich them together or some kind of special program?

    Thanks for the comment.

    I use a product called AutoPano (just Google and you should find it). It may be a bit behind the times now and I haven't looked to see if there is a better technology available.

    Re: Panoramas

    Louis thats a great pamorama. This is a good idea for a seperate thread and has given me the insperation to go try and shoot some for myself once i find something worthy of a panorama.
    I kind of miss London. I worked in the "square mile" for a couple of years, the tube in the summertime was a killer. Was so hot..
    However, still glad i moved here. Life is alot slower..

    Thanks for the nostalgic image.

    Re: Panoramas

    Hi everybody, this is my first post here

    This panorama captures the buzz of the opening reception for a youth photography show inside the historic Hadwen and Barney Candle Factory, a part of the Whaling Museum on the island of Nantucket, MA. It was a great gathering of young people, friends and family, and I wanted to capture the spirit of the community inside such an impressive historic setting.

    It is a stitch of 6x2 pictures taken by G1 and 14-45 Kit lens set at 14mm. AOV is 216x138 before cropping. ISO 400, 1/20, f/3.5, handheld. Thanks for watching.

    Wow.. congratulation, this is an impressive picture where your intent comes very well through, I like it.

    Concerning the technical aspect I'm really wondering how you were able to nail it : at 1/20 second, with moving people and handheld, I guess there was some postprocessing needed after the first merge : what kind of software did you use ? how did you achieve all this ?

    Re: Panoramas

    Thanks Annna
    You are right. It was quite a challenge but I am happy with the result .The top row was the main problem and it took around 30 seconds to shoot 7 pictures, the light coming from the windows without any blinds was also a problem, besides the difference in color temperature of outside and inside lights there was an eight f stops difference in the intensity of light, bottom row was not of that much problem and is a stitch of five pictures I used raw files and in some parts extracted up to four files with different exposures and white balances and mixed them. The total time of post processing was around 25 hours and the softwares that were used are, PTGui. Photomatix and PS4.

    Great examples. Interesting to see a b&w pano - love the indoor one, very difficult to get a good static rendition with so many people and I really like the landscape!

    Keep them coming, please

    Three interesting and eyecatching panoramas. I must say that the flower is a very original subject for a panorama! And the one that went wrong also has an artistic appeal!

    Hi Louis,

    I'm not sure what one really should use these large panos for but it sure is fun. I enjoyed zooming in your London view. Just for fun I decided to make one myself. Not spectacular in any way, it's just the evening outside my balcony here in Gothenburg, Sweden.

    4 images stitched together taken during a warm sunset:


    and a zoom-it version with more moderate PPing: http://zoom.it/A8cL

    The distance from my house to the wheel is 1.700m and I used my G1 with a 180mm lens.

    It's fun playing!

    Cheers,

    /Jonas

    Thank you Louis. It was you showing me the way to zoom.it and I thought I have to try at least something.

    When looking at the "original" in your post I landed at Flickr and among other things found The Valiant House there. Great stuff.

    Re: Panoramas

    Here's one from a recent trip, this is the beach at San Sebastian, Spain. It's not art, but a fun 'post card' reminder of the trip. A 6 shot, 180 degree pano, taken with a Panny G2 with 14-140 zoom, handheld. This pano was assembled from the in-camera jpegs using AutoPano Giga. The full size after pano crop is roughly 2800x15,000 pixels; I have downsized to 1200 wide here. It is still a work in progress as I would normally carefully process out tiffs then edit the blends to eliminate issues. Current issues are horizon not quite perfect, some blend edge issues in the distant detail and the ghosted people on the beach. I am however conflicted on removing the ghosted people, as it adds motion to the image. C&C welcome:

    A 3500 pixel wide version can be seen in the "huge" thread here: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showth...t=18307&page=6



    Here's another from the G2 and 14-140 using in-cam jpegs. This one at Biarritz from the lighthouse. I took 5 frames here covering maybe 120 degrees. Interestingly, it blended far better using just three of the 5 than it did all 5. Something to keep in mind if you do panos regularly, is if you get artifacts consider removing frames you do not need to fill the pano. Always better to take more than you need and toss them later though... C&C welcome:



    The Panny lens and camera using in-cam jpeg combo detail isn't too shabby either. Here is an 800x800 actual pixel crop from the above pano just for reference. A tad oversharpened, but not horrible even for largish prints:

    Re: Panoramas

    Jack,

    this is really a stunning example of what one can get with a pretty "simple" camera and just handheld! Really!

    Of course working it to TIFF and then play lot of registers in PS could add some quality, but I think another quality (a very important one indeed) is how one can get such results in a relatively easy way.

    I think I need to shoot more in JPEG in the future as well and getting my new NEX I am very keen to see how the Sony Auto Pano function scales up to the demands we have here.

    BTW - hope you enjoyed the wine in Spain as well

    Re: Panoramas

    Thanks Peter!

    And this trip encouraged me to use the in-cam jpegs on my Panny cams at all times going forward. FWIW, I put some examples of the in-cam jpeg B&W in the B&W thread here in case you're interested -- these all from the GF1: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showpo...postcount=1155

    We were only in San Sebastian for a day, driving down from Biarritz, and it was HOT. So at lunch we enjoyed some very cold local beer instead of the wine -- but I DO like Spanish reds and roses very much!

    Here is one from Het Ij in Amsterdam just before Sail 2010 started to come in.
    Should have done it in portrait mode to get some more height in the picture.
    And it is to small to. Well my first attempt.

    "The experiement"...
    I have done some experiemnting with close up multi row panos of small things. I have never been that happy with the results. What was your intention with this image and what do you think about the result (compared to just take one image with a short focal length)? Was it the shallow DOF or the high resolution you were after?

    Hi Manoucher, and welcome to the forum!

    That's a nice image! I like to see so much going on in one frame. What projection did you use when stitching? There is no problem with the projection to my eyes but i wonder what it would look like with other settings.

    5x1x2? Is that 5 images from left to right, 2 rows I guess but then, what is the "1"?
    And, to my eyes, and please not that I'm at work and the monitor here is not calibrated, the image is a bit bright. After playing a little with the image in Photoshop (lowering the shadows in curves, or dragging the gamma lever a bit) I think 2 seconds could have been enough. Maybe some bright parts would have been less blown that way at the same time as the background wouldn't suffer from getting a bit darker.

    Hi Michiel,

    You are good at giving critique to your own images...
    I have made quite some panos, good and bad ones. Now I always capture quite a bit more than I plan to include in the final image. That gives more freedom when picking parameters for the stitching and the later cropping. I probably don't need to say but anyway; I would have taken two rows with the camera in portrait mode here.

    Cheers,

    Hi Michiel,
    It is a great pano, Michiel. I can feel (see) the excitement of "Sail 2010" through your image. Best, Leica 77.

    Selfcritique is pure selfprotection, I quess

    Two rows! Good idea, thanks Jonas. I noticed 5 in a row is sort of the maximum in PS photomerge in my experience. I actually shot 12 in a row 180 degrees.

    What projection did you use when stitching
    Jonas,

    Thanks a lot, Equirectangular projection gave me the most natural look for that picture; if I get a chance I will try PT Assembler, which is more flexible and has more projections than PT Gui.

    5x1x2? Is that 5 images from left to right
    Sorry for the confusion. In fact I should have said 6 images in 1 row and 2 extractions with 3.5 EV difference, from each raw file. I made HDR and tonepapped in Photomatix from these extractions (off course it's not a real HDR). I will try to reduce the highlights but it also might have happened during the size reduction from 11000 px psd file to 1100 px jpeg file.

    I am really am pleased with the quality of the pictures in this thread and hope that more people will be inspired to experiment and post the results.

    I'd also encourage people to play with Zoom.it - I am not in any way connected with the organisation but the ability to easily display very large panoramas and zoom the detail is very worthwhile. Details can be found in my original thread at the top.

    Last year I tried panoramas during the summer holidays in Crete. This is one of chania harbour. I added two from this year's holiday in Kos.

    With Microsoft Seadragon you can also create zoomable Pictures:

    From the new to old. This barn dates back to the early 1800's. Three shot (1:1 format raw with GF1 and 20 lumix) stitch and post processed as an antique plate image.

    Scho, I really like the results and treatment of your architectural pictures. The barn it particularly expressive. Well done.

    Thank you Louis. Old barns make interesting subjects.

    Thank you Annna. I liked the "hot mirror" reflection of the surrounding trees in the windows. Almost looked as if the trees were inside the building.

    Re: Panoramas

    Lovely panos here.

    I received my Fotodiox Nikkor to 4/3 Pro adapter recently. This adapter has a shift mechanism built in, that is great for pano shooting.

    This is an example, shot vertically, stitch of 3 pics with a Micro-Nikkor 105/2.8 on the G1. Stitching with Panorama Factory V5

    My latest effort composed of 3 photographs, taken on top of Trinity House in Whitechapel, overlooking Swanlea School and the Crossrail building site which is in the process of creating a new Crossrail interchange station in Whitechapel, London.

    Re: the Boston shot - that's near Flour bakery isn't it? I visited for work about a year ago - I loved the cream filled doughnut there. You could almost say it's THE "Boston Cream" doughnut!

    Here's my first try at a panorama, shot from my office window in Toronto. I only had my 20mm and the new tower being built is right across the street. I used the panorama technique to form a wide angle image.

    One lesson learned - pay close attention to metering when starting the panorama. I started with too much of the sky in the shot, so the image is a bit underexposed overall.

    Re: Panoramas

    mjohston: great first try. BTW, I incorrectly stated I was using the 45/2.8 for my Panorama but like you I was using the 20/1.7 which is a fantastic lens for such work, given its incredible sharpness stopped down.

    Mackinaw river at Mackinaw, Il. River is low this year. Last year water would have been over my head from where I was standing.

    +1 - like this very much. Shows that you don't need a lot of pictures to create a powerful panorama.

    If it went wrong, it's right in at least one sense: it has an Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass feel to it. I like it.
