Well, of course itīs not important how you take your pictures. But in this case I think, itīs a little bit different.
Due to less DOF with 300mm, for each image ( except the first three rows) I had to take 2 or sometimes three images with different focusing points. Of course you canīt do this with an automatic pano head and so the session took me quite a long time. For nearly 400 images I had to adjust the focus points manually, which really needs a lot of concentration.
Because of moving leaves and shadows, I had to edit a lot of pictures manually before the stitch.
Now the image: Stitched from 349 images (made from 729 images)http://photoartkalmar.com/ZOOMIFY/Vienna%20pano.html
I added one more row. For the images on the very right side in the last row, I had to change my cameraposition, but of course it was impossible to warp these images manually to fit in the panorama.
Now I updated my old PTGui version and tried the new "viewpointcorrection" feature.
Well, of course I had to work manually a little bit but anyhow, it was possible to add a complete row more.
The bad news: Without viewpointcorrection, PTGui worked 7 hours for the panorama but 32 hours with viewpointcorrection for 7 images.
I alsow edit a lot of little mistakes in the panorama. Especially the sky presented an unbeliavable chalange. Now, here you can compare the new and the old version.
