A couple of panoramas
« on: September 25, 2014, 09:52:26 am »

Whilst out visiting Dalby, a country town located 3 hours from the east coast of Australia, I managed to take a couple of panoramas of a wheat field.  The first is before the sun disappeared (the golden hour) and the second shortly after it had set (the blue hour).  I'd be interested in any people thoughts/preferences:

I like the second one best. It has more detail in the fore-ground and the color of the sky is more appealing to my eye. Nice image.

Second by a country mile (pardon the pun).

Neither image is realistic. You don't seem to have processed them appropriately. Were they in-camera jpeg shots?

The first image contains unrealistically black shadows, and the second image might have nothing to do with a sunset if you hadn't mentioned it.

Nice to see some flatlands here. One challenge is a slightly curved horizon caused by lens distortion, which appears in a panorama as a undulations. I level and straighten each horizon before stitching.

Thanks for the comments.

That is something I will try in the future.

Also you can use various other techniques such as warp to straighten the horizon after you have stitched
