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.

Re: Hand-held panorama

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

Re: Hand-held panorama

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

Re: Hand-held panorama

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

Regards
Andy

Re: Hand-held panorama

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

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.

Re: Hand-held panorama

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).

Re: Hand-held panorama

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?

Re: Hand-held panorama

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