Panorama of the Arve River's Valley, France

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by JPS, Oct 27, 2005.

  1. This is on the road from Geneva going to Chamonix, at the foot of the Mont-Blanc (one can see it on the right). I used 6 images in *.JPG to produce this one, wich gives about 160 degrees viewing.

    Nikon D70 with Sigma 12-24 @ 24 mm. - 1:200 @ f/10 - ISO 200 - All settings manual, shot on tripod.

    Stitched (partly manual) with Panorama Factory V4. The original was 9'469x1'913 pixels.



    PS. Hi Mike ! i reduced the contrast on this version... does this suits you better ?

    Lovely pano. Was it taken in a single row? and were they landscape or portrait? Was it a pano head or did you have to adjust for the horizontal distortion? Whatever way you did it - it's fabulous. Used to live in Geneva - brings back lots of memories. Thank you.
  7. wonderful work, absolutley gorgeous.
  8. Hi Patrick !
    Yes, the panorama was shot in a single row, from left to right (after i manually set my aperture, speed and distance from the center of the view).
    I shot them in landscape, with about 50% overlapping.
    I don't have a pano head (don't think it's very usefull if your not using a long(ish) lens...).
    I was testing the latest version of Panorama Factory, and first build an "all automatic" pano, wich ended having lots of "fantoms", so i ended stitching "partially manual", wich takes a bit more time, but is well worth the effort !!!

    Thanks for helping my son with his homework!

    One of his assignments was to find a picture on the web showing folded mountain strata. He found a few, but I remembered this picture from last year (it made quite an impression) and we found it by searching back through the forums. He printed out a small version to show his teacher...
