I've been trying to do a pano of my old high school - my sister's class arranged a tour for their 40th reunion, and I tagged along - but I must not have been in the right place.

Our high school was an old college campus, and I was in the quadrangle snapping and pivoting, but Central Hall comes out as a curved building. The rest is OK.

I may get a chance to swing by there and snap some more from another spot, but I think I really need to move around the quad, staying about the same distance from all the buildings as much as possible.

This is from one of the sunny days this summer, we haven´t had allot of them this year...
but it´s taken with my cellphone ( htc one x ) and not a sony cam but i think the road is kind of cool :)
the picture is made of 5 images stitched together in the phone, and the road is 80degree bend.

If the curvature of the buildings is a problem, it may be that your stitching software has some projection options. The only such software I've used is Hugin, which makes trying out the various projections very easy. The only downside is that for a rectilinear projection, you have to take a LOT more pictures at the periphery of your panorama scene, and it never seems to be enough when you get them all laid out.

Dennis, thanks for posting! How many photos did you use to make your panorama?

Greg, I hope you will soon have a bit of free time so you can also post some of yours. A pano of the home project might be quite cool. Which software do you use to do your stitching?

Hi Henry, I haven’t done much previously/recently with pano’s except the bridge I did do one of that and put it in the weather thread (I think), but the thing is a pano doesn’t look much of anything at a 1000pixels wide, you really have to see it at full screen to see it at some advantage over a regular photo…and as for taking a pano of some weatherboards that I might be scraping the old paint off of or splicing a new section into, that would be a thrill a minute for sure. :lol:
Greg
Ps I just use Elements to construct a pano when I want one, it seems to work ok.

Hi Dennis, : )

I suppose the road is actually pretty straight in reality.

The way you went about the panorama, it reminds me of HDR photos taken to light 3D scenes visualized by cad software. : ) Maybe it can be used for that purpose also.


Thanks for sharing,

Yildiz

Had my first go at a multi-frame panorama. This is just 4 pictures stitched together using Microsoft ICE.

It was a very nice morning, but not quite clear enough for the shot I wanted.

Nice one, Birma! How do you like ICE? It is a free download so I have thought about trying it (also Hugin), but I rarely do panoramas so I haven't gotten around to trying it.

Good going! By the way, you could add your panorama to the following thread too!

Thank you all. I am a shadowy figure Doc!!! :lol: Henry, since you asked, I have used ICE for
about 3-4 years now. My biggest stitch was a 62 image panorama and I have routinely
done 5-45 image stitches using MS ICE. I did try but not succeed using their 2-D stitch
and it could very well be pilot error. It is very good especially for the price. :lol:

Thanks Henry :)

I tried ICE after I saw Sury mention it here some time ago I think. It is very easy to use. I was impressed with my first attempt above. A second try resulted in some banding on the joins. I'll have to try one with a bigger number of pictures.
