Some Panoramas from Vejers, Denmark

During our Denmark vacation I shot some pictures with the intention to produce some panoramas to illustrate, why I like Vejers so much. You might have seen them in an earlier post.

Anyway, during the vacation I stitched them with Canon Stitch 3.0, which is included in the software delivered with the 350D. This produced indeed a picture consisting of of all the pictures, but it didn’t look very good. In particular the areas, where the pictures overlapped was very visible.

So, back at home I tried PTAssembler and these are the (very good) results. PTAssembler produces a Photoshop PSD file, each picture on it’s own layer. Following the tutorial from the PWAssembler site
you can place the seams at the best locations. The final step is the color/brightness adjustment. This was done with the Gimp under Linux. I guess, if I knew the Gimp better I could have completely removed the still visible differences in brightness. In this particular area the advantage of Photoshop is very obvious. In particular, many of the techniques I’ve learned about in the RadiantVista tutorials are not directly transferable to the Gimp.

This final picture was again stitched with PTAssebler, but this time installed in Wine under Linux (this means, that it works under Wine/Linux). The final corrections however were done in Photoshop. I’m pleased to say, that I’m really pretty happy with the result. The seams could still be handled a notch better.

I guess the 39 bucks will be well spend considerung the $20 discount on the Panosausrus Panoramic Tripod Head.
