  • Hand-held panorama

    Went to St Abbs yesterday, and though the weather was overcast, managed this sequence of 7 shots, hand-held, using my E-510 in portrait format with the 14-54 at 54mm. Processed staright from the RAW files in Autopano Pro and tweaked for levels, etc, in PS CS3.

    Nice view, although slightly oversaturated for my taste (could be my crappy works monitor though!)

    Always satisfying when a handheld panorama works out as well as this one

        That really is very well stiched together. Did you lock an avarage exposure or let the programme sort it out?

          I think I agree with Chris (Chilimonster) on the saturation, but also that this really is a lovely place and I like the panoramic view - nice composition

            Well done Stephen, fantastic view and it stitched together very nicely.

              Hi Stephen -

              A super panorama from you, on my screen the colours shout a little but they don't detract from a very nice scene. Great stuff.

              Regards. Barr1e

                I like the colours; just proves the east coast isn't always drear!

                  Re: Hand-held panorama

                  Yes. on re-viewing it is a bit over-sat.
                  My exposure technique on panoramas is simple - like me - I spin the camera round in A mode and note the variation in indicated shutter speed. I then set it to manual using a very rough average, and bang away!
                  I have been known to use A on all shots, if I've been feeling lazy and the lighting looks uniform, as Autopano seems to be able to compensate quite well.

                    Hi Stephen

                    I am getting more and more interested in panoramas, and really enjoy viewing them.

                    I like this image, which contains a lot if interest, the only thing I found is that for me, I am drawn to the wall at the lower right and find myself thinking the image might have had a great 'lead in' at the right angle if there were more of the wall present (if it even is a wall!!)

                    Great pano though Stephen, super shot(s).

                      The wall is in fact a rock formation, built presumably by a greater force than Wimpey

                        I too really like the panoramas and Stephens' is a good example of what to look for as a subject.

                        At the other end of the spectrum of quality panos is my last effort

                          But the sky isn't oversaturated, it's quite pale, how did you manage that?

                            If I remember rightly, I used a grad filter in Lightroom to bring out the clouds.
