I tried to do a Pano shot yesterday and after stitching up all the pictures, after all the vertical and distortion are corrected by the PTGUI software, i realise that all 4 corners, top and bottom of the picture are left with the "black" area (black canvas/backgroud) especially the bottom part and have to crop away. My question is, what technique to apply to prevent it so that I can have a larger foreground.
This is the shot, im referring to how do i take the picture properly so that when after stitch up, i do not have to crop so much of the sea away (the picture is left with so little "sea" now). Im fine with a little cropping, I understand that sometimes after some correction, you'll have to crop some part off but not like the picture above i got to crop so much "sea" away. Any advise please? thank you
