Pardon me but just this once......
This is my most daring panoramic attempt. Anyway I'm not very experienced at this also.
Just a background, this photo is taken in Rome, Piazza San Pietro (Saint Peter's Square). It's a circular compound.
What I did was stand in a "sweet spot" and snapped as I turn around.
The result wasn't too good. The seams are not well done, parts of the building didn't blend too well (colour, etc.). And it was warped pretty badly.
In order to have the entire "building" in the picture, I have to include the void areas of white. Ended up having to remodel the photo myself......
Noticed that the lower 20% to the left and right looked a bit superficial, and the centre 60% of the top sky as well? I well...... "created" that bit of the photo.
Anyway, any panoramic experts here can give me some guidelines to taking one of this scale and design? Thanks!
