This is my first serious try at a panoramic landscape. The scene was too nice to pass up. The sun was diffused by solid cloud cover and recent rains have nearly denuded the coniferous trees in Charles Tilden Park above Berkeley, but the colors remain vibrant.
I am posting my two favorite crops from a 6 image panorama stitched together with 16mp files. One thing I noticed that I wasn't too happy about were some artifacts from what I assume is part of the Photoshop photo-merge process.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to avoid the worst of these, please let me know. In this particular set of images, they don't seem to draw attention or detract from the overall impression due to the rather chaotic composition. I think they are easiest to spot as sort of "sworly" out of focus bits on sections of otherwise in-focus tree trunks.
