Floating crane from 'Mammoet'
In reply to Captain Hook, Jul 15, 2012

This weekend, a floating crane from 'Mammoet' docked in Lelystad:

This is about the maximum size dpreview allows me to post here. It is a multirow stitch from about 25 images, handheld, shot with my D800E and a 135mm DC f/2.0 lens.
The original panorama file is about 15Kx13K pixels in size!

Nice one Captain. I only noticed a few of the cables misaligned and the flags appear to be botched a bit. If it were mine, I would clone the flags from one of the individual frames to the pano and see if it couldn't be fixed that way. It works really well in Photoshop CS4 and higher. The cables were easy to fix nearly perfect and not nearly so noticeable with CS6.
Those huge sea going cranes are amazing. Dave

Glacier National Park Panos
In reply to Captain Hook, Jul 15, 2012

This one was taken from the Logan Pass parking lot looking East toward Saint Mary Lake. I think the snow is so dirty looking in the foreground due to dust being blown from the parking lot.

The three arches on the Going to the Sun Road.

Both were taken with a Nikon D800E with 24 70 2.8 @ f8 ISO 100

Cables misaligned? I looked carefully, but only in the center there is a very small spot where I can see a tiny hickup...

And the flags... they aren't misaligned and/or ghosted, but just torn apart. Even in a individual image, they look ripped to pieces.

I shot this image from a larger distance. Just a single shot.
Who needs stitching?

With this kind of resolution (click on 'Original'), directly from the D800E.
And even this image is cropped and resized...

No big deal, but I count 5 that I can fix and three more where they cross over each other that I would need the original frame to fix really good, but I did an adequate job on them I think. Take a look again. One of the flags in the middle looks blurred on the end which I still think is a stitching error. The other one could well be torn. Here is the one I worked on, but you need to zoom in to see them which is good. Maybe you could try a different stitching program and see what happens. There was also a mast just aft of the tug boat that was misaligned. I would also get rid of the vapor trail and the small corner of the pier. I would have emailed this to you if I had the address.

Without the pier and vapor trail.

Excellent and the additional colors really make it nice. Maybe you could position yourself so that it looks like it is lifting the tower in the distance. Dave

Both are excellent, Dave - saw them on your site. You must have been having a great time! Amazing natural color and sharpness (despite the reduced resolution images).

Flag and mast there should only be one flag according to the single frame pic posted later.

Maybe these are small enough that they wouldn't be visible unless printed or enlarged a bit, but still look better when fixed. Dave

Thanks for opening nr. 53, Captain! Love the 'Mammoet' pano.
It is such a recognizably Dutch scene.

Stop being such a perfectionist, Dave. We are here to have fun!

Seriously, I appreciate all the advice you give people, but usually it is better
to sit back and enjoy an entire image.

I'm afraid people will be scared off if we demand perfect work only.

Some more history from Gouda, Holland
In reply to Captain Hook, Jul 17, 2012

Centuries ago rich people used to leave provisions in their testament to help
the poor. Often in the form of housing for widows and orphans.

This is one of those cases: 'The Cristina Ghysberts House', one of some 350
national monuments in Gouda:

The benefactors always made sure that they were well remembered:

Old platan tree in the garden behind the house. From eight horizontal shots:

Olympus E-PL1 and 14-42mm II. Stitched with Ptgui.

Cheers,

André

Very nice. Immediately thought of Kubrick's The Shining with the second one

BTW: i liked your parting shot [it was #150 in the previous thread] very much. Sometimes cropping out the sky in a mountain valley works very well.

A tall tree... 10k pixels long!
In reply to Captain Hook, Jul 18, 2012

I restitched some images from a tree, covered with mushrooms:

Nikon D700, 60mm, 8 x image handheld, stitched with PTGui.
Click on 'Original' to scroll from top to bottom (or vice versa)
The original image also contains GPS EXIF data.

And yes David, there are some stitching errors...
