I think it depends on whether there are features in the panorama that had really obvious perspective in the original pictures.

Look at the road in the second pic in this post
What's this bottom line for anyway?

Using a wide-angle lens to create a panorama will lead to this multiple vanishing-point effect as you will get barrel distortion (fish-eye). 

To see this effect, zoom as wide as you can and try to take a panorama of a totally flat horizon (a sea-scape perhaps).  Each frame will be slightly fish-eyed (depending on focal length, lens quality and so on).  There's no way your software can resolve horizons with a slight curvature into a flat horizon and so you will tend to get a vanishing point in the centre of each frame.

Better to zoom in a bit so you get a flat(ter) horizon.

When ever I do my landscape pano's I always try and work with a 50mm lens or digi equivalent to get the perspective close to normal, its not an exact science more rough guide but sometimes I will alter the focal length to suit.

I like the fact that you can create huge images with loads of detail.

Here is Lords, before a 20:20 match



Hmmm. I'm going to Murrayfield tonight. I may just have to try this...

Cool, that worked well!



Though I did it mainly 'auto' in Hugin - I simply can't get it working in manual, even with the tutorials...

Ta. Nice pics.

I was a bit puzzled by this quote from the site:
"I would like to precise that none of my pictures receive any kind of digital trickery nor fancy manipulations."

I'm guessing that 'precise' is a misprint and he means 'say' or something. Anyway, it seems an odd thing to say about a load of digital images. Does he mean he didn't do anything about the colour balance/contrast or anything, just left it to the camera?

Here's my attempt at a panorama after discovering the "stitch-assist" function on my camera. Created with Hugin.


Very large (11MB) version here.

Oooh that's the very same bit of south shrops that I put in a panorama last August.  I must dig it out again when I get home tonight.

I finally have enough processor and RAM to crunch through some panos that I never got round to stitching :D

Thats from the alps with the Mont Blanc Massif on the left.

Both beautifully dramatic.  Thanks for making the effort to put them together.
Getting there...

It would probably be better if you just put a thumbnail into the thread, rather than make the browser download and rescale two images >1MB each.  Anyone browsing this thread with a phone, or over a slow link is probably swearing at it.

Good view though, in both cases. :thumbsup:

This was today view looking north-ish from the top of Scarfell Pike.  I created it with Autostitch (which gives small images  :() after failing with Hugin.  In my defence, it was the first time I'd tried to use Hugin.....

Autostitch gives images as big as all the images together. You have to change the scaling in the options menu. Its default appears to be 10%. Change it 100% but be prepared for a very big picture.

You can use panoramas for other things.

This team line-up is 4 images stitched as I had the wrong lens on at the time they lined up.

Has anyone got Hugin fully working on an EeePC ?  I've got Hugin itself working, although it won't work for a very large image (so far maximum appears to be about 4000 pixels), since memory is a bit tight, but I can't find a repository, or other easy way, to get enblend installed, so the images won't merge together very tidely at the joins.  I haven't looked to see if autopano is available in one of the repositories.

Ooooooooo, I see.  I'll give it a go when I've got time.  Thanks for the tip.

South Hessary Tor, south of Princetown on Dartmoor.  I wasn't supposed to be here, but got turned around and around in the white-out frosty clouds!

It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.
