Rubbish in Wide photography.

Will be posting Wide panorama stuff here. It's sometimes not possible to avoid things in the photo. So Should I edit/crop or just leave it.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

I’m no expert on panarama pics but have you tried shooting with your camera in portrait position rather than landscape? Probably need to take more photos that way but it may help editing after stitching.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

It's a stunning scene
I assume you're referring to the grass in the bottom of the image?
It's a tough one, especially at this small size to see what you'd lose/gain by cropping off the bottom.

I'd certainly try losing the more central grass patch to see how it looked.
I wouldn't lose the right side of the volcanos to crop the right hand grass out.


My limited understanding of landscape is something in the foreground is a key ingredient to a pleasing composition. That's something pretty tricky to do with a wide panorama though.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

I think i'd leave them in in this case. Its a very dramatic shot Henry what a view! Where is it? Dave's suggestion of using portrait mode is a good one. Often by including more of the rubbish as you call it gives the view more context.

Shot in Mt Bromo, Surabaya, Indonesia.

Was there to shoot the Milkyway. There are other shots coming

Yes, it's that bush in the middle. I was thinking of cloning out that bush but then I could not make it look natural.

AMc, you should look at it on a huge full screen. (My signature leads to my flickr page.) One of the reasons I don't fancy the 7-14 for wides, a panorama gives lots of details.

Crazy Dave, It is a series of 6 portrait held photo stitched together.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

This is a really great image.
I would remove the little bush.
Use Photoshop Spot Healing brush (or your chosen app equivalent) on your full size image and then resize to the same as the one you posted then you won't notice its gone.

Re: Rubbish in Wide photography.

In this case I would remove the bush bottom centre, as others have said.
