Cars and Hills ::360 Pano:: by rdevill Cars and Hills ::360 Pano:: by rdevill
Francz Josehps Hohe is a very busy place in the summer. It ofers a beautiful view of the greatest Glacier of the eastern part of the alps (Pasterze) and Austrias highest peak. (Grossglockner) From here one can either take the "Gletserbahn" down to the Pasterze, or go on a days hike on the Gamsgrubenweg. After returning to the parking lot, one can have a nice meal at the restaurant located next to the visitor center, and enjoy the magnificent view of the surrounding peaks.

I got only one question! :))
Is it software or 180degrees FF lens? :)) cause when I do panoramas from lots of pictures, sometimes I get not the picture I would like to get.. :D or You do the same thing, only with a tripod? :))

I use a D60 body with a Sigma 10mm fish eye, and a special tripod head: Nodal Ninja 3 head + RD8 rotator

There are many factors that one needs to take into account when creating a pano. First of all you need to keep the no paralax point (npp) still while rotating the camera. This is quite hard if you are doing it from hand, that's what the special tripod head is for. (Although I did manage to shoot panos from hand in Spain, when I didn't have the pano head yet.)

The second most important part is the actual stitching. I use PTGUI for that. What is very important, is that I always export blend layers separately, so that I can move the stitches when necessary. After that I have a stitch error detection script that I have written. It points out every single bit of error, so that nothing gets past my inspection. When necessary I either move stitches by copying from the separate blend layers, or use traditional photo shopping techniques to remove artifacts.

Great perspective. I love the way my eye wraps around the railing and sucks me into the piece. gorgeous symmetry.
