I love this kind of photos..how many shots and how?

RoarX on July 3, 2011

Thank you VinhTo! This is 19 tone mapped (HDR) shots (I did not need that many, 15 usually works). Hand held vertical shots, with at least 1/3 overlap between photos. The area under the sun had to be manually brightened during tone mapping, because it was a bit dark there.

Lovely panorama RoarX. When I study photo seems to have slight WB shift in some segments. I love panoramas too but in terms of popularity if horizontal panorama more than about 5 shots I think it get too small for people to see as thumbnail so they dont bother. An alternative of course is to upload whole panorama, and segments as separate photo with links and back links to the whole thing.

Thanks Lady!! I know those WB shifts :(

I hear people don't like large panoramas and 360's. It gets odd when the photo shows too much angle. I hope the Pano photo viewer will get a proper panorama viewer, where we can add the angles of the photo and 360's can be spun around. Then people will enjoy panoramas like they are on location. When it comes to thumbnails, large panoramas has a problem. It must be something interesting in the middle in order to get a nice thumbnail.

I presume you're using manual WB. I sometimes see exposure banding but not WB banding.

I like the approach of having a single shot of the main object of interest, then in description comment, if you want to see whole whole panorama click here, with a link to it.

It might be both WB and exposure banding. Sometimes adjusting the exposure of individual photos is not enough to make colors the same as the neighboring photo. I use auto WB. Maybe I should have tried manual. Manual exposure is also possible, but then it will be impossible to do HDR, unless I use a tripod and have a lot of time.
