    I did not expect this to work

    Towards the end of the family do for my grand-nephew's christening, I swept the camera round the assembled masses with a view to seeing if a panorama shot could be made.

    I took 5 shots, shown below, and when I looked at them and noted the considerable differences in some people's positioning between the shots, I was not at all confident of an acceptable result.

    However, I put the 5 shots through the LR pano process and I am surprised at the excellent way it has coped. Bravo!

    Good work, John, and always worth trying.
    I do a lot of panos as it's far more convenient to use the 24-105 that is seemingly welded to the body and stitch than carry my (excellent) 16-35.
    Some panos, though, can have hilarious results with people who moved sufficiently to appear twice



      It surprising how well the pano stitcher can work. Where I find it has problems is with wide angle lens settings and/or panos where one end is much closer than the other...

      Equipment: Far too much to list - including lots of Nikon...


        Yes wide angles can lead to distortions but PS's 'Merger to Panorama' ability has some options that serve to reduce or even eliminate it.


          Excellent result John - well done

            Quite amazing, nice work John.

              The software has improved enormously over the years. That photo is a good reminder of the day. Well done.
