Nice 3-shot pano from the Carolinas

Here is a 3 shot panorama stitched with PanoWeaver 3.01 Pro on a PowerBook G4, 800MHz, 500 MB RAM running OS X 10.2.2. The pics were shot on top of the chimney at Chimney Rock, NC, using a Nikon 995 and a homemade pano bracket of the sort described on Philo's web page (http://philohome.free.fr/lbracket/lbracket.htm). The pano was stitched in cubic mode at 800 x 4800 and published as a 640 x 480 QTVR. The fisheye images were rotated and cropped in Photoshop prior to importing into Panoweaver (see my other post regarding the benefits of this process.) No editing has been performed; this is the raw pano out of Panoweaver; no manual stitching was needed. I am highly pleased with the ease with which a quality stitch is obtained from three shots! Some parts of the pano are on the dark side because the sun was dropping behind the mountain and I was in pretty heavy shadow.

Nice action John,

The image is a little dark, however you have easily got enough detail in the pixels to remedy this. If you use photoshop have a play with the brightness and contrast of the stitched image. By the time you have finished you will wonder why there are no sunbathers on the ledge.... promise!

Good shot and stitch

Hi John,

I checked out your pano and thought it was great!

Look forward to seeing more.

Pity about it being late in the day, (dark area's) but hey, we all take plenty of photo's and only ever a few are perfect.

Regards, Smooth
