Hey, thanks for the compliment! :)
I just use my Photoshop Elements 5.0 stiching program. I use the Heal option to help fix any stich lines in the skies.
I end up using clone stamp to clone stamp over the stich line from the original image. That way the image retains a smooth transition from section to section.
Also I find that taking shots at 24mm or higher make it easier for the program to blend the sections together. I use to think the wider angle lens the better for stiching but I found that it causes some distortion and sections don't blend together very well.
Hope you have a wonderful New Year!
Photos were taken from right to left which after stitching creates a bad picture. Should be from left to right. I had to rotate each picture 180 degrees then stitched them upside down which looked alot better. After I rotated the whole panorama 180 degrees it came out the way it should be. Luckily it turned out pretty good.
This photo is a "re-photo" of the original one taken back in 1909 as seen on the wall of the guard house.
and all this time I thought that these were left over and where the ones used at this site.
yep thats better I think. Thanks Joel
Good picture showing the ever increasing disrespect and ignorance.
That photo was taken in 1995 (hence the bad scan), so I can imagine that quite a few things have changed, especially with dune sands having shifted over time.
