Lessons Learnt

I’m investigating ICE, which I use to stitch the panos, as it seems to be causing ghosting, I thought my tripod head was loose the first few times, but this time I made a POINT of keeping it solidly locked into position, and I am still seeing strange inconsistencies between the stitched brackets. I think I might give the Hugin pano-stitcher another shot as I have quite a few complaints with ICE.

Really glad you share these. The size is a big issue, maybe upload some smaller ones next time.

GiantCowFilms says:

I released Winter Sun – Morning @ 50% of original resolution. I’m releasing this one @ 25% of resolution, as I will for all the following ones. A good case could be made for 12.5%; however, I think some people may find the extra pixels useful, and uploading two resolutions is a waste of space.

Awesome! Thanks for making these!

The Radish says:

is there something hanging from the light post to the left of the middle of the image?

GiantCowFilms says:

That was a stitching error, I am currently looking into these issues, hence the mention of trying Hugin again at the bottom of the post.
