I like it, no question about that!

But AZRA, i'm so sorry, i can see a lot of stiching failure :) I'm sure that's because my eyes are trained due to my previous job of Draftsman.

Anyways it's getting better and better, especially the sky, almost no stich visible :)

I found a very large pano of Calgary not long ago which seems to be perfect, but i don't know if it is stiched by a program.

Unfortunately many people scream "wow" before they really observed a pano. I saw many lousy panos on many different websides and forums, but mostly people scream "wow" and ironically the really good panos get not enough credit.

Hi Mike

Saw the pano of Calgary, very large one. It took quite sometime to load the whole photo with my slow connection.

Thanks for your critique. Will try to find a sewing machine to do this stuf. Stiching manually is really hard and time comsuming especially having different sky conditions from a very large area to cover, bright and dark sky.

Best wishes....AZRA

Yeah, it is time consuming, but i'm kinda perfectionist :-)

Nonetheless, I'm not perfect as well.

  • My best pano is from my hometown, as well as one of my worst pano.
  • Another bad pano i made from Barcelona; i simply forgot to take a pic in the middle...
  • And my first pano is looking strange because the single pics were not meant to become parts of a panorama.

But don't worry, i can asure that you will getting better with every new pano :)

Well I never done one but if I did would do a few things

a tripod(for making sure that horizontals are same in all shots)

make sure its perfectly horizontal(less distortion on each shot makes stiching easier}

use same manual settings for all shots(this way the exposure is the same for joining shots so less chance of seeing join)

take shots as quickly as possible(so as not to see any changes in lighting conditions)

M.Wilke on July 6, 2009

Happy Snapper UK, i agree with you 100%. I couldn't make a better advice that yours :) Thanks a lot!

Very good job AZRA, my compliments!

Thanks Bob never thought of using a tripod.:)

Using the same exposers will be tough. The manual settings for the compact camera I used has limited customise setting.

Giuseppe Thanks for dropping by with your compliments.

Best wishes....AZRA

Hi AZRA. I viewed three of latest PANORAMAs. Three of them are perfect. Technically they are same qualities. But this one attracts me more than others. Good job. REGARDS, Salih Özbudak.

Al Mahat on July 6, 2009

Hi Andreas thanks for looking and for your compliments to this experimental panoroma photo attempt. I'm happy you liked it.

Hello Salih Özbudak thank you very much of putting time to see my progress of learning this new stuff. Very glad that you approved of the outcome, Sincerely I have to find other easier means of stiching images perfectly.

Best wishes from Malaysia...AZRA
