Den Haag railwaystation, October 2012,
probably some 5 shots stitched with gigapano,
not without glitches.

I don’t stitch full panoramas… much. Here is a shot of a library I recently donated to the University of Illinois, which is the third largest library in the world. I donated this, and it will now be part of their permanent collection. As far as I know, it is the largest library of astrological materials that I am aware of. It took a large moving van to haul it away.

Cool shot, well done.

One question about the accompanying text, was it astrological or astronomical material?

Wishful thinking. It is astrological, not astronomical, although I have programmed all of the planets to within a fraction of a second, which is pure astronomy. Astrology is cultural astronomy.

you might restitch this with a slightly higher center point. Then all the verticals will be parallels...

To make my 1500th post here something special. One of my earliest panos, just after switching to digital:



A different harmony 2 April 2005

Technical: All the early panos I made with Panokardan, my own construction panohead for the D70 plus the 24/2.8D Nikkor. Typically I took between 140 and 170 single files and combined them after a preselection to one 200MP equirectangular. When there was movement in the picture, I called this "panotheatre", many people saw it and adapted this technique later, I took up to 550 pictures to selectively choose people and cars and bicycles and animals to include or exclude from the picture. It sometimes took 48 hours to process the file with "autostitch" this then experimental software that is now at the core of the best set of tools on the market called "Autopano" by KOLOR.FR a french company.

The following is an early stitch of Willem van den Hoed playing his piano in Delft in August 2005. The computer was not strong enough to render this immaculately at the time. I did it later, no body parts missing, but I still love what I could do at the time of sampling the picture:




Funny thing is I now have a very fast computer, equipped with the best software. I have the best panohead in the world, a great camera (D600) and Lens (24/1.4G) to create immaculate 800MP shots, but I do not take many panos currently. It is a pity. I should. I should travel more, shoot more, work less, make more holidays. The third pano in the post is one of the few panos I took with the current setup.  The Krypta in Maria Laach. 800MP 11.4GB 16 Bit TIFF...
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

I can't say that I am a fan of full panoramas, but I do like what I call partial-panoramas. Here is one with three panels, each stacked, taken with the D800E and the Nikon 24mm PC in shift-mode. Spring in the wetlands of Michigan.

Here is one of the Michigan woodlands in spring. This is the D810 with the Sigma ART 24mm, if I remember right. This photo taken using several panels, not stacked.

Michael: I love "spring in the wetlands of Michigan" because it springs to me just like the contact copy of a 8x10 negative. The resolving power of the overwhelmingly detailed shot creates the impression to look through a window into the real world. A very clean HighResolution window.

Congratulations on your 1,500th post Frank.
And what an imaginative selection of images in it too.

So if anyone thought that stitching just meant big wide panos, this thread is an excellent nudge. Good idea Elsa

This thread badly needs an infrared pano, doesn't it?

So here it is...
27 shots, handheld, D80IR with 50mm lens.

I loved Akira's panoramas, especially the second and third.

I've got loads of panos...

The first two of my contributions, are from the place that Bjørn mentioned many people here are better used to in colours, with a six months difference...
I have a version of the summer pano that almost perfectly matches the winter scene, but without rainbow.

The last is from the Assiniboine area in BC, Canada.
I forgot how many shots, all were stiched with Hugin.
