Great panorama! I like that the sky is not completely dark and the colorful reflections in the water. The sharpness is great and the aspect ratio makes the city stretch like forever., Unfortunately, there are some misalignments, not only in the river but also within the buildings, maybe you can fix this. And, by the way, I would also remove this airplane light in the middle of the image, because this would look like a scratch, when printed. But still, a great image!
thanks! let's just say i have a lot to learn about stitching software.....however covering this much territory with horizontal exposures i probably could not have really gotten it much closer. should have done more exposures with more overlap and used a vertical perspective. be sure to check out this newer pano, which came out better imo: [link]
great panorama. From the amount of light in the sky, my guess is this is just after sunset taken from Green Point, Brooklyn. Great details from top to bottom with really sharp features. Getting the Queensboro in the shot adds a nice touch to the overall feel of the picture, keep it up
thanks for the comment! as you can see it was actually earlier in the evening when i started than when i finally shot the final frame at far right. since each exposure took 30-40 seconds the light had fully changed by the time i had gone all the way from left to right. actually this was shot from long island city queens (could also be categorized as astoria perhaps). if you like this pano be sure to see this one (which was shot from brooklyn): [link]
yeah...hugin is a massively complex program...it's gonna take a while to get the bugs worked out. that said...even using the software to it's best advantage the irregularities of the movement and light patterns on the water may make perfect undetectable stitching difficult if not impossible. the buildings line up good for the most part...even where it appears the water does not in the same frame.
Ive tried out every software thats out there just because i get the same misaligned result as you, Ive found out that its extremely hard to get a good panorama when i include sea/rivers with just a little movement/waves.
Hugin is one of the best in my opinion, though it takes some time to learn ;D.
thanks for the info! strangely the daytime water came out better in this one: [link] i think the nighttime long exposure water really throws off the computer more somehow. either way i have a bunch to work on as far as shooting panos as well as processing them properly.
