    Default Night shot stitching help

    Hi Guys,

    I always don't have any luck stitching night shots. See the pix below if you want to try yourself. Note those pictures were taken using manual exposure/focus and camera on tripod with ballhead. I'm trying to stitch it using canon software but no luck. I've resize the pictures to make it load faster. Anything I missed to make it work? Let me know if you want the original files (10MP)

    I tried, but results weren't that good mainly due to these reasons :
    • Angle too wide resulting in distortion
    • Moving Elements like boat on left and clouds
    Maybe someone else would have better luck. Anyway, the next time you take panos, just have to overlap abour 25% of the photos. You seem to have overlapped 90% here so the resulting pano could have been achieved in jus 2 shots instead of 4.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    Hi Splutter,

    Thanks for trying. Reason I took 4 shots is to serve it like a guarantee that I can stitch it if 2 shots stitching won't work. But I'm wrong

    It is not easy to stitch night shots due to the cloud position may change after long exposure.

    try this, remember to edit the option to scale - 100% before the stitch.

    it worked like a charm! the seams are not even noticeable or my eye is malfunctioning

    thanks so much!

    now i realized the canon photostitch software sucks bigtime. but of course the cam is something to love.

    This is usual when you pan your shots. This can easily be corrected in any photo editing software.

    Don't need to send me the file. I saw the .zip folder. and here is what I did. I corrected the slant but I did not crop it. I left the panorama black space for you to decide where you want to crop your photo.

    you can down load it here.. It's uploaded on gigasize so there is a 90 days limit starting now.

    i can't seem to download your file. u corrected the slant on the final panorama shot? or must adjust before stitching?

    thanks.

    donno why...you got an email? I send it to you.

    wonder why it's not being attached. I upload it to flickr then you click on the thumbnail and d/l it.



    I joint it and corrected the slant. Just trim to your own liking. If you want me to remove the link, just say so. then poof, it's off flickr.
