    Nice work as usual, I love your panos. You mentioned PTGUI, if you're using the latest version do you use their new internal stitching engine, or panotools? I'm curious what you think about their new stitching engine. I purchased PTAssembler instead of PTGUI a while back, now I'm wondering if I made a mistake since things like 16-bit support are probably never going to be optimal with PTAssembler just because of limitations in autopano/panotools.

    :eek:  Stunning

    I like the "Perkins Memorial Drive Solarization " the most. By the way how or what is Solarization effect ? :confused:

    Hi Jeff,
    I have never used PTAssembler but I can say that I am very suprised with PTgui. After using Realviz for the past few months, I can say that PTgui blows it away in regards to speed and quality of my panos. It has become my default stitching software. Download the demo and give it a try if you like :) 

    Thanks for the comments

    Hi Fishsauce,

    Many years ago I use to do solarizations in the darkroom. Back then it involved exposing your print to light during the developing process. Try to google kirlian solarization for some history.

    In todays digital darkroom, the effect was done with Nik Color Effects 2 plugin in photoshop.

    Thanks for the comments, I really enjoy seeing your image posts :)

    Perkins Memorial Drive 2 does it for me. A real wall hanger.

    Now I know I have to get serious about making panos.

    This 5 shot panorama effectively quintuples the resolution you would get with a single wide angle shot of the same content. Yes? Also 1/5 the noise?
