Well i went for one of the longest bike rides ever,the weather was just great and i though i'd go for a nice long ride. I ended up in natural reserve. And in this natural reserve there was a "pill" or a water tank which i climbed up on, rusty thing, when i was half way up on the thing i heard "Crack" and i almost fell...that made me think of "to what extent we push ourself to get certain photographs" with no cell phone nothing. Just my bike my camera and myself!

So i decided to go for the biggest panorama photo i taken so far! I wish i could some how have recorded it with my eyes the scene was just stunning!

Imagine, having the sun in your back/right side and just looking over this field. To the right you have the "inland" right in front you see some farms a bit of houses. and then moving left you have the Öresunds bridge. And more left you have some windmills and Denmark!! This photo doesn't cut it really. But it was a special moment for me and i try to share it some how!

Argh! Divshare blocks viewers from SE Asia. :evil:

Used a proxy though so I could see it just fine. :) How many frames did you use Alex?

I had to check wasn't really sure, 11 frames total.

How come they block stuff like that? Bummer...but the proxy will solve that..

Divshare has the advantage of hosting big files for unlimited time, it does have some mistakes as popups and ads, but still works :D

The photo is really awesome, maybe the biggest panorama ive seen :D

Ok, it's coming down now... but at 8kB/s, it's going to take ten minutes :shock: hehe

Edit: 18 minutes at 12kB/s. That site is slow for free users.

Yeah the photo probably doesn't do the scene justice, particularly because things are so far away and flat. If it were possible to shoot it from very high up, it might solve that problem. But things may just be too far away for them to come up at any level of detail, esp. with the flat perspective.

What's your camera and lens?

It looks quite blurry. Is that the way your photos generally look or was it introduced by the panorama software?

What's your panorama software?
I've only used Panorama Factory and Photoshop. Both of these should do the joins better without needing to do anything manually.

Alex, good to see you trying out panoramics. It's well stitched, but the scene is lacking that special factor; it's just rather flat. Having a horizon across the middle compounds this issue (it also needs straightening). The pool of water as a focal point is a stroke of genius in an otherwise plain photo.

EDIT: having properly viewed the large version and not the thumbnail, I agree that the stitching could be far better.

Its a rather flat pano indeed, not alot of mountains over here! More of a photo of a special moment for me then anything other!

I was wondering, when working with panoramas, its quite hard to have a great focal point so to speak across the entire image, and most of the panoramas i have seen often contain mountains, city landscapes, and how would one go about shooting a proper pano. Whats that special something to look for?

An interesting horizon...

EDIT: though not a landscape, this illustrates the point (I think you've seen this one before).

It was deliberately taken at the widest setting on the 10-20 Sigma to create the distorted "horizon".
